EcoBoost Challenge is Back

March 25th, 2015

The Ford EcoBoost Challenge returns! Ford is touring 17 cities for test driving through June, bringing the most anticipated Ford Models (including the all-new 2015 F-150 and Mustang). The EcoBoost Challenge gives consumers across America a fun and free weekend to test drive Ford’s latest innovations. The closest test drive event to Grand Rapids is in Chicago on May 9. Make a weekend out of it and Get behind America’s most popular brand!

Screen shot 2015-03-25 at 12.14.07 PMParticipants are eligible to win a brand new, EcoBoost-powered 2015 Ford Edge. Additional entries can be earned by bringing guests to the event with them. In addition to having the opportunity to test drive, the tour includes a “ShiftPhobia” boot camp that provides consumers a hands-on clinic to learn the basics of driving a manual. If you’ve ever wanted to learn, now is your chance! An on-course driving instructor will help you through the learning process.

“With EcoBoost engines now available across 100 percent of our U.S. light-duty lineup, the EcoBoost Challenge lets consumers experience this innovative technology that helps Ford deliver better fuel economy with a more engaging driving experience than the competition,” said Michele Bartlett, Ford group marketing manager for large cars and SUVs. “Not only is the EcoBoost Challenge a lot of fun, but getting people in the driver’s seat is the best way for them to experience the craftsmanship, innovation and performance of the Ford lineup.”

Participants must register at due to limited spaces and first-come, first-served basis. See below for locations and dates!
