Ford Expands Auto Start-Stop to 2017 F-150

Ready! Set! Save money! When you buy a new 2017 Ford F-150 (yes, on the surface that’s not saving you money) you get the latest in the automaker’s Auto Start-Stop technology.

All EcoBoost-equipped 2017 F-150 pickups will now have the technology, including the new Raptor.

According to Ford, the technology, “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.” This process should (and does) save on emissions and fuel usage keeping precious dollars in your billfold.


The following Ford vehicles are available with Auto Start-Stop:

  • Focus 1.0-liter EcoBoost
  • Fusion 1.5-liter EcoBoost
  • Edge 2.0-liter twin-scroll EcoBoost
  • 2017 Escape 1.5-liter EcoBoost, 2.0-liter twin-scroll EcoBoost
  • F-150 2.7-liter EcoBoost; 2017 F-150 2.7-liter EcoBoost, 3.5-liter EcoBoost, high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost
