Will Pickup Buyers Embrace A Turbocharged V6? They Should, And Fast. 2011 Ford F-150 – Click above for high-res image gallery The year is 1977. Jimmy Carter replaces Gerald Ford to become the 39th President of the United States and creates the United States Department of Energy. Apple Computer is incorporated, and the Commodore PET, the world's first personal computer, is sold. NASA's first space shuttle is christened Enterprise and performs its initial test flight. Music lovers welcome Fleetwood Mac's latest release, the Grammy-winning album Rumours. The Supremes, Elvis Presley and Led Zeppelin play their final concerts, and, later in the year, Elvis leaves the building for good. The top grossing movie? Star Wars. On television, Fonzie rather famously jumps the shark. In the world of automobiles, Porsche introduces the front-engine 928 and Burt Reynolds turns the black and gold Pontiac Trans-Am into an object of desire. And, finally, the Ford F-Series earns its status as the best-selling vehicle line in America. Clearly, a lot has changed since 1977... except, of course, for the Blue Oval, which can still boast that its full-size pickup truck is the number one nameplate in the United States. Ford has no intention of passing that particular baton to anyone else, and in order to maintain this impressive bit of marketing gold for a 34th straight year, the Dearborn-based automaker is putting four brand-new engines, including a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6, in the engine bay of its F-150. The automaker says 2011 marks "the most significant powertrain upgrade in 62 years of the F-Series." We, of course, had to verify that claim for ourselves.

That's not really a problem in our books, as the 2010 model was nothing if not a handsome pickup truck. Similarly, there wasn't much that needed altering in the overall ride and handling compromise; steering remains very light and a little slow, just as Ford's F-150 has been for years, and it handles... well, like a truck, albeit a fully modern truck with an extremely stiff, fully-boxed frame. No problems there. The only real issue we had with the 2010 F-Series was its aging engine lineup, so we're plenty happy to see that this is where Ford spent all of its engineering resources. Let's start with the base engine, which quite thankfully puts the old 248-horsepower 4.6-liter, two-valve V8 out to pasture. The new 3.7-liter V6 powerplant may be down two cylinders from the mill it replaces, but it's a much more modern design. Plus, with 302 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque, it's also significantly more powerful. In order to provide a proper frame of reference, Ford brought along a smattering of trucks from its competitors (how thoughtful of them!) including an example of the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado with General Motors' long-running 195-horse 4.3-liter V6. Considering that Ye Olde 4.3-liter has …
