FORD F-150 ECOBOOST BAJA TRUCK: Home to some of the harshest, most challenging terrain on earth, Baja, Mexico is the perfect proving ground for Built Ford Tough trucks. On display at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show is a Ford engineered F-150 2.7L EcoBoost Baja truck that will conduct an ultimate real-world test when it competed in the legendary Baja 1000. After all necessary safety modifications and other adaptations had been made, the truck ran the grueling 883.1 mile course as a production vehicle taking on challenges and obstacles difficult enough to break million-dollar trophy trucks and making it to the finish line. The advanced, high strength, aluminum alloy body was tough enough handle the punishing course while the total weight savings of over 600 pounds made the truck extremely capable and efficient. Climbing from sea level to altitude and traveling over inhospitable surfaces of all types, the 2.7L Ecoboost engine provided a combination of rugged durability and power on demand with great low end torque … yet still delivered outstanding efficiency. A New Era of Built Ford Tough!
