F-150 EcoBoost Challenge winner makes her mark

The Ford F-150 EcoBoost® is known for delivering impressive results, but F-150 EcoBoost Challenge winner Carlee Mallard stepped up to the plate by achieving an average of 28.3 mpg throughout her week with an F-150. The Raleigh-Durham, N.C., resident also held a community service event that attracted 56 volunteers to help gather water and nonperishables to distribute to people impacted by Hurricane Irene. The F-150 EcoBoost Challenge saw eight truck fans put the truck to the test in their own communities to try and average the highest miles per gallon for at least 25 miles per day. They also were asked to create, manage and execute their own community service event.
