The 1.0-Litre Ford EcoBoost Engine Tops Its Class AGAIN at the International Engine of the Year Awards

Ford's innovative 1.0-Litre EcoBoost engine has been named the 'Best Engine Under 1.0‑litre' in the 2016 International Engine of the Year awards, the 9th consecutive award for the engine. This is still the only ever engine to have been named overall winner three times in a  row Judged by a panel of 65 automotive journalists from 31 countires, the EcoBoost has been named the 'Best Engine Under 1.0‑litre' winner in the 2016 awards, based on drivability, performance, economy, refinement and technology. Last year, the 1.0‑litre EcoBoost became the first engine to be named overall International Engine of the Year three times in a row, and was also named “Best New Engine " back in 2012.

“The 1.0-litre EcoBoost was a game-changer, and despite others following our lead, it remains the undisputed benchmark in its class five years on,” said Joe Bakaj, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “The spirit of innovation continues to drive us as we look to use the same smart thinking for a new breed of efficient, clean and powerful down-sized diesel engines.”

Available with 100 PS, 125 PS and 140 PS, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost is produced at Ford's European facilities in Cologne, Germany, and in Craiova, Romania, and is now available in 72 countries worldwide.

In 140 PS form, the engine delivers a bigger power-to-litre ratio than a Bugatti Veyron. A road-legal Formula Ford fitted with a 205 PS version of the engine also lapped the famous Nürburgring circuit, in Germany, in 7 minutes 22 seconds; a performance that put it ahead of a host of supercars including the 600+ horsepower Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda.
