Ford’s tiny 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has many fans in India and abroad. This engine that powers 10 of Ford vehicles has won the international engine of the year at the Engine Expo 2014 for the third consecutive year.
This engine was also named ‘best engine under 1.0-litre’ for the third year in a row for its drivability, performance, economy, refinement and technology. The engine's turbocharger spins at almost twice the rpm of the turbochargers powering F1 race car engines.
The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine was first launched in Europe in 2012 with the Ford Focus. It was later plonked in various other cars like the Fiesta, B-MAX, EcoSport, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, Tourneo Connect, Tourneo Courier, Transit Connect and Transit Courier. The new Mondeo will also get this engine once it is launched.
"To deliver the complete package of eye-popping fuel economy, surprising performance, quietness and refinement we knew this little 1.0-litre engine would have to be a game changer. Through our One Ford approach to development, EcoBoost continues to set the benchmark for power combined with fuel efficiency from a small petrol engine,” said Bob Fascetti.
