Ford Reveals Its All new 2.0 EcoBoost Engine
Here is a new engine technology from the Blue Oval, the 2.0 EcoBoost engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger.
Slated to arrive in the 2015 Ford Edge which is constructed on the CD4 platform this new powerplant will soon be used in a variety of larger Ford cars and SUVs. The all new Mondeo will get to get the same 2.0 EcoBoost inline-four with a twin-scroll turbo by mid-2015, an engine confirmed to churn out 237hp and 345Nm of torque.
Though it’s no longer a secret it will be mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic gearbox, it’s still a mystery how many horsepower it will produce. Ford has previously stated that the 2.0 EcoBoost will produce “an estimated” 245 ponies and 366Nm of torque, which is not bad at all.
As opposed to the current 2-liter turbo engine, the new EcoBoost is expected to deliver considerable better performance and low-end torque, as well as better mileage. In addition to the twin-scroll turbo, this engine boasts with a high compression ratio (9.7:1 compared to the current 2.0 EcoBoost’s 9.3:1) thanks to new, sturdy pistons.
Furthermore, a newly designed integrated exhaust manifold, joined by a high-pressure direct-injection fuel system, an active oil control system and active wastegate are there as well for improved power delivery.
Production of the all-new 2.0 EcoBoost is going to commence in early 2015 at Ford’s Cleveland Engine Plant No. 1 from Brook Park, Ohio.
