Be the first on your street to drive the 2011 Ford F-150 with the twin-turbocharged EcoBoost™ engine and support Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, or Future Farmers of America. It’s your choice which charity your test drive benefits!
On Wednesday, February 23rd we will have the 2011 F-150 with a Built Ford Tough EcoBoost engine here, at The Chatter Box, to test drive from 9:45am-12:30pm.
For every test drive, $10 will be donated to either Susan G. Komen for the Cure, JDRF, of FFA! Get your friends, neighbors and co-workers together, to raise money for these charities.
If you cannot make it there on Wednesday morning, go to drivef150ecoboost.com to schedule a personal appointment, and have the truck brought right to you at your home or work!
Ford is ready to show off the 2011 F-150... in fact it's so excited about it that it wants you to drive one (or four) before the truck arrives in dealer showrooms. The F-150 is receiving a slew of new powertrain options, including the all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost unit. The twin-turbocharged. direct-injection V6 mill is capable of great power numbers and is rumored to come in around the 400 mark for both horsepower and torque. Also making their debut in the 2011 F-150 are the 3.7-liter V6 base engine, the 5.0-liter V8 and the top-of-the-line 6.2-liter V8 for the Platinum edition truck.
Ford is taking a fleet of trucks on a whirlwind tour around the country and expects to put 20,000 butts in the driver's seats. The Built Ford Tough Roundup is going to kick off in Texas on Saturday, September 25th, 2010. It will then make a great big convoy across the USA as Texas gives way to Maryland, Georgia, Florida and finally California. All those stops will be hit before the 2011 Ford F-150 checks its on-sale date off the calendar.

This is a great way to give consumers a sneak peak at a new product before it's for sale. If you plan on going, make sure you get in line early for the EcoBoost, 5-point-0 and the big 'ol 6.2 because those waits are bound to be just a bit longer than the those for the 3.7-liter.
