Power and Performance: Why Your Next Car Should Have Ford’s EcoBoost Engine
Ford’s EcoBoost has been highly regarded as one of the most innovative engine technologies in the automotive industry. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine combines game-changing performance, technology, and fuel efficiency that sets the standards for compact and smaller engines in its segment.
EcoBoost is Ford’s most technologically-advanced engine ever, delivering up to 20 percent better fuel efficiency with outstanding performance. Ford engineers combined three key technologies designed to save fuel and boost power: direct fuel injection, variable camshaft timing, and turbocharging. An advanced software program ensures a seamless driving performance.
Direct fuel injection allows improved fuel efficiency and optimized power delivery, while the variable camshaft timing drives increased engine torque and fuel economy. Turbocharging gives extra power and torque on demand.
Want to know how the EcoBoost engine revolutionizes the small engine? Here are four amazing facts about the EcoBoost:
1. It’s small.
The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is compact which left people astounded when it first launched due to its significantly smaller size. In fact, the EcoBoost 1.0-liter cylinder block is small enough to fit within the perimeter of an A4 sheet of paper and even on the overhead luggage compartment of a commercial airplane.
2. It’s powerful.
A 1.0-liter EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta can produce 123 hp and peak torque of 170Nm–that’s power and engine performance to rival a traditional 1.6-liter petrol engine. The compact engine offers more power, torque, and refinement than its size suggests.
3. It’s fuel efficient.
The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine offers more fuel efficiency, despite its scale-exceeding power. It achieves up to a whopping 20-percent improvement in fuel economy so drivers won’t need to frequent the gas station as often as standard petrol engines would require them to. It also reduces up to 15-percent its CO2 emissions, making it a more environmentally-considerate platform.
4. It’s award-winning.
The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has been voted as the 2017 International Engine of the Year–Best Engine Under 1.0-liter for the sixth year in a row. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost has won 10 International Engine of the Year awards including overall winner a record three times, and “Best Newcomer.”
“The EcoBoost is definitely a game-changer in the global automotive industry, setting the benchmark for compact yet powerful and fuel efficient engines. We look forward to pushing the boundaries of powertrain engineering even further and seeing more of our vehicles running on this innovative engine technology,” shares Bert Lessard, managing director, Ford Philippines.
