What is an EcoBoost engine?
The Ford EcoBoost (Petrol) engines, available from 1.0-litre to 3.5-litre capacity, are amongst the lowest CO2 emitting and fuel consuming engines available. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine delivers the same performance of a conventional 1.6-litre engine and has won International Engine of the Year awards for the last 4 years.
How does it work?
The Ford EcoBoost technology combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging, and variable valve timing, to enable reduced fuel consumption by up to 20% with no loss of performance.
The EcoBoost engines are made up of clever components and technology to help lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. There's a water-cooled exhaust manifold to reduce exhaust temperatures and to cut down on the need for extra doses of fuel to keep things cool and detonation-free.
The EcoBoost engine range is available across all new Ford cars at TC Harrison Ford, except for the new Ford Ka.
