Ford: Auto Start-Stop Will Be Standard On All 2017 F-150 EcoBoost Trucks

January 22, 2016

Ford is expanding its gas-saving Auto Start-Stop technology to their entire 2017 EcoBoost F-150 truck lineup, including the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost high-output engine version in the F-150 Raptor.

Specially tuned for truck customers, Auto Start-Stop shuts off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop – except when towing or in four-wheel-drive mode – to give drivers power on demand when they need it most. When the brake is released, the engine restarts quickly.

Ford's Auto Start-Stop is currently standard on its 2016 2.7 liter EcoBoost F-150 pickup truck.
