The automotive rumor mill is rife with buzz about upcoming V-6 engine options for the company's best-selling F-series pickup.

Ford is doing its best to hang with Toyota in the green-cred department, as well as to meet upcoming federal CAFÉ fuel economy standards. One of the company's main strategies in meeting both goals is the widespread application of turbocharged power plants across its fleet of cars and trucks under the brand name of EcoBoost.

The plan for a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine has been known for some time, but these are the first specifics from Ford

Our colleagues over at PickupTruck.com have reported that Ford's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine, now available in the Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT crossovers, the Taurus SHO sporty sedan, and the Lincoln MKS full-size luxury sedan, will indeed find its way into the engine bay of the F-150 sometime soon. The twin turbo, direct injection, gasoline powered EcoBoost V-6 reportedly has the power of a V-8 but the fuel economy of a V-6.

They also quoted sources that said the EcoBoost offering would not be the only V-6 engine choice for the F-150. The newly introduced 3.7-liter V-6 engine that debuted in the 2010 Ford Mustang will reportedly also be available for buyers in need of V-6 fuel economy but who either don't need the higher performance or can't afford the price premium of the more expensive EcoBoost engine. PickupTruck.com speculated that the 3.7-liter V-6 should be available in the base F-150 for the 2012 model year.
