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. The innovative 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine gives you all the power you'd expect from a conventional 1.6-litre engine (up to 100PS) whilst delivering around 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower CO2 emissions at just 129g/km. No wonder Ford EcoBoost has been awarded International Engine of the Year for the sub 1.0-litre category for a record five years in succession.
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.
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. The turbo also creates a great spread of torque. 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.
