Ford EcoBoost Challenge
Ford EcoBoost Challenge Rolled In and Out of Town!
On June 13, Rochester-area residents had a chance to participate in the Ford EcoBoost Challenge, a 17-city tour that allowed registered drivers the opportunity to test drive some of Ford's most innovative, environmentally friendly products. Participants were also entered to win an EcoBoost-powered 2015 Ford Edge.

The EcoBoost line-up of vehicles allows buyers to choose a vehicle that doesn't sacrifice space for fuel economy. The EcoBoost engine is smaller, and the lighter weight helps increase fuel economy without sacrificing performance and power. These engines are available in Ford's most popular models, including the F-150, Fusion and Focus.

The challenge was held June 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Monroe Community College, 1000 East Henrietta Road, Rochester, NY.

Thanks to all who came out to test drive a vehicle from our new, innovative EcoBoost line-up! In case you missed the event, have a Challenge of your own and test drive an EcoBoost-powered vehicle at your Neighborhood Ford Store today!
