Meet the EcoBoost®-Powered Ballistic Ball Launcher

When two good things come together, they create an even better thing, right? Well that’s the hypothesis behind this next bit of science from the folks at Ford and Dolph Lundgren, legendary action star and all-around smart guy. They’ve taken the goodness that is Ford’s EcoBoost® engines and paired that with some everyday objects that are alright on their own, but made better by getting ‘The Boost.’ In this episode, science takes us to the proverbial batting cages as Dolph and his team join a 1.0-liter EcoBoost® engine to a pitching machine to create the EcoBoost®-powered Ballistic Ball Launcher. Check it out below…for science, of course.

The EcoBoost®-powered Ballistic Ball Launcher is definitely faster and more powerful than your standard pitching machine, which can usually throw a ball about 90 mph. The Ballistic Ball Launcher clocked in with speeds over 200 mph and the ball shot straight through three layers of drywall. So is the EcoBoost®-powered Ballistic Ball Launcher faster and more powerful? Definitely. But is it actually better than the average pitching machine, or has it simply become a weapon? Only further playing around with it—er, science stuff—will reveal the answer.

All kidding aside, Ford’s EcoBoost® technology strikes the perfect balance between power and efficiency by using turbocharging and direct injection to deliver added power without sacrificing performance. If you’re looking for a new vehicle and you’d like to give yourself “The Boost,” come see us at Stearns Ford Inc. to check out our great selection of new Ford models, most of which are available with the EcoBoost® technology inside. Come see us in our Burlington, NC showroom and someone from our sales team will be glad to help you find the perfect vehicle for all your motoring needs.
