Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost Engine Revealed

Ford has released new information about the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that will debut in the 2012 Focus (Euro-version). The three-cylinder mill has an aluminum cylinder head, an integrated exhaust manifold and an “innovative flywheel and front pulley design to counter engine vibration.” There’s also a turbocharger, direct injection and Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT).

Two versions will be available and the entry-level unit will produce 100 PS (74 kW / 99 hp) while emitting 109 g/km. The high-performance variant will develop 125 PS (92 kW / 123 hp) and 170 Nm (125 lb-ft) of torque – 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) with overboost. In the Focus, it will consume approximately 5.0 l/100km (47 mpg US / 56.5 mpg UK) and have CO2 emissions of 114 g/km. According to Ford CEO Alan Mulally, “The new 1.0-litre EcoBoost – and our entire family of EcoBoost engines – represent technology breakthroughs that deliver power, fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions through turbocharging and direct injection.” The engine will eventually be offered in the 2012 B-Max before becoming available worldwide.
