This 1.5-litre EcoBoost is the fifth member of the EcoBoost family and is a key contributor to Ford’s aggressive fuel economy and emissions strategy, EcoBoost technologies enable improvements to both fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions of up to 20 per cent. The 1.5-litre engine benefits from signature EcoBoost turbocharging, direct fuel injection and variable valve timing and has been designed to be even more fuel-efficient and offer high levels of engine refinement, quietness and performance.

The new aluminium-block, twin-cam 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine features some of the innovative features introduced on the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost, including an integrated exhaust manifold. The new engine provides similar horsepower and torque performance to Ford’s current 1.6-litre EcoBoost, while delivering improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. This makes the new Ford Focus very quick and economical at the same time.

At the heart of this world’s most popular compact car is a powerful and efficient 1.5-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which offers 180 PS of power and 240 Nm of torque paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine is the first engine from Ford to incorporate a computer-controlled clutch on the belt-drive water pump, which further improves efficiencies by reducing warm-up time. A water-cooled charge air cooler is added to offer a more efficient feed of air into the engine.

Ford is definitely onto something big with its EcoBoost engine technology. Drivers can count on truly impressive on-road power combined with world-class fuel economy. If you’re shopping for a Ford, it’s a likely bet that your model of choice comes with an EcoBoost option. And making that choice pays off in the long run.
