Proof that bigger isn't always better. EcoBoost is anything but traditional.
Its a wholesale re-imagining of what an engine can do. These smaller, lighter engines feature many innovations that deliver great fuel economy and reduce emissions. Yet they don't compromise on performance.
No wonder the 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine won international Engine of the Year three times in a row.
To an EcoBoost engine, every drop of fuel is precious. So precious that it reduces fuel consumption and makes a serious reduction in CO2 emissions – to as low as 99g/km.Direct injection helps EcoBoost engines achieve these remarkable figures. A precise, highly pressurised amount of fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber. This innovative and effective way of using fuel means EcoBoost engines use only the bare minimum amount of fuel needed. Every EcoBoost engine features turbochargers for a power that far exceeds engine size. Turbocharging uses exhaust gases, which are usually wasted, to push more highly compressed air into the engine and give a huge boost to their power. A 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine can deliver an impressive performance up to 140PS, similar to an older, heavier 1.6 litre petrol engine.
The turbo also creates a great spread of torque (the power available to make the wheels turn). This makes EcoBoost engines flexible on open roads, with fewer gear changes needed. Variable cam timing helps generate high torque even at low revs, and maintains peak power. Or more simply: you get immediate, responsive power whenever you need to accelerate – such as overtaking a long, slow lorry.
The Award winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine is available with 100PS, 125PS and 140PS power outputs,the 1.0 litre is also a 3 cylinder engine.. It’s been joined by a 1.5, 1.6 and 2.0 litre versions, with specially-tuned 2.3 litre EcoBoost engines sitting in the new Mustang and Focus RS performance car. The 1.0 litre EcoBoost is also used to power our Fiesta rally cars throughout the world, while the 1.6 litre engine powers our F4.
EcoBoost engines are also available on the following models: Fiesta, B-MAX, EcoSport, Focus, New C-MAX, Mondeo, Tourneo Connect, Transit Courier and Transit Connect.
