Furthermore, consider that Ford's 2016 F-150 XLT starts at $29,416 equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 FFV engine. That price tag jumps to $30,794 when equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 FFV engine. When equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, the price tag moves even higher, to $31,421. The difference between those price tags is even wider when you move up to more expensive versions of America's best-selling truck.

Ultimately, Ford and General Motors are neck and neck in numerous comparisons. But one thing Ford can certainly hang its hat on is how it successfully markets and sells its popular lineup of EcoBoost engines -- and when the difference can be up to a 10% premium for the price tag of vehicles, it starts becoming of interest to investors. Well done, Ford.
