What is EcoBoost?

This is the name given by Ford Motor Company for their new low consumption, high power engines, co-developed with FEV engineering and in production since 2009.

The smallest 1.0-litre was voted engine of the year for 3-years, thanks to its combination of performance and fuel efficiency which, on paper, many other manufacturers’ units struggle to compete with.

The combination of the small, direct injection engine and a turbocharger mean the 1.0-litre EcoBoost is able to produce similar power to a regular 1.6-litre petrol unit, but with the fuel efficiency of a much smaller engine. The addition of a turbo also results in a greater spread of torque than in the old 1.6-liter, so it feels more flexible on the open road and requires fewer gearchanges.

Ford EcoBoost engines are designed to deliver power and torque consistent with larger naturally aspirated engines while also lowering fuel consumption by some 20% or so. Ford even goes as far as to say its 1-liter engine is as good as any equivalent diesel. The EcoBoost engine family was launched in 2009.
