Just wondering if any one has a Ford pickup with the 6 cylinder turbo. If so just wondering how you like it and if you have had any issues with the motor. Just wondering how well it pulls and what kind of mileage it is getting.

I have one. It is a 2011 that I bought new and I love it. Mine is 4x4 and on the highway I average around 20 to 21mpg. I have gotten up to 23 on highway on a longer trip. I have hauled 4 tons of sand on a trailer behind it and had no problems. Other than that I usually only haul my boat and it does great with that as well. My dad has one in a 2 wheel drive and has gotten as much as 25.5mpg on highway. Neither one of us have had any issues with our trucks at all. The power is great and it is even better to have it on demand but still have the gas mileage.

Ive heard of lots of people liking them.

We have a company truck at work. its a 2011 4x4 with the 6cyl turbo. It was a tie buyers truck who got fired and it was left here through the remainder of the lease on it. I took a trip to Mississippi in it a month or so ago. Its got 97k on it and the transmission was slipping awfully bad. But i have to take into consideration that it wasnt his truck. Just a work truck and im sure he dogged it out.

My brother in law drove one for a while and liked it. But my wife has a 2010 crew cab 4x4 that has the V8 and she is getting around 22 on the highway. Best gas mileage we have ever gotten out of a Ford

its all about how you drive pretty much all the v8's now will get around the 20 mpg. but I have heard some good things about the 6cycle turbo.

It's just too early for me to trust it.....the Eco Boost has a lot of people that really love it. To me, I just prefer the V8. A twin-turbo six is just asking for trouble down the line, but that's just my opinion.

Thanks everyone for your input, I had 2010 Ford with a V8 and was supposed to gotten 20 on the highway and it never saw anything near that. I drive the speed limit or a little below the speed limit.

I have a new 2013 4x4 Supercrew XLT. Ecoboost turbo 6 cyl. About 3k miles on it. Av 17.4 mpg lifetime mixed driving-mostly town, Mtn, rural < 55 mph. Two highway trips so far av 21 at 70-75 mph not towing. I mostly drive gently, but its hard to keep my foot out of it- I grin when those turbos kick in.

Love the truck. Low end torque makes it feel a little like my diesel F250 as it accelerates. Tows great. Snatches my boat out of the water easily on steep ramps. Best truck I've had so far and I've had dodges Chevys and a few other fords-diesel and gas. I test drove the 5.0 V8--it was great as well. I actually got the V6 cause its a little quiter and I like the low end torque. If u like that V8 rumble that engine sounds sweet' however The v6 will not get better mileage than the v8, so don't base your decision on that. Just buy your preference after test driving and you will be happy either way.

Some of the Frontier's had them. I think the years were somewhere around 05-10 give or take.
