EcoBoost



MILEAGE YOU NEED. POWER YOU WANT.

The award-winning EcoBoost is Ford’s most technologically advanced engine ever. Delivering up to 20% better fuel efficiency with outstanding performance, it truly offers the best of both worlds.




The innovative technology behind EcoBoost


Ford engineers combined three key technologies designed to save fuel and boost power: direct fuel injection, variable
camshaft timing, and turbocharging. An advanced software program ensures their seamless performance.

Direct injection

Improved fuel efficiency and
optimized power delivery

Variable camshaft timing

Increased engine torque
and fuel economy

Turbocharging

Extra power and torque on
demand

How EcoBoost optimises fuel economy











Direct injection

A high-pressure fuel system injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber, regulates how much fuel is needed at any given time, and cools the charge to enable higher compression ratios. This greatly improves efficiency while generating more power compared with a port-injected engine.





Variable camshaft timing

EcoBoost engines precisely control the intake and exhaust valves to match changes in engine speed and load. The result is improved fuel economy, reduced exhaust emissions, and increased low-end engine torque.

Downsizing

EcoBoost’s lightweight design improves fuel economy, while fewer cylinders mean less friction and more energy
saved. Yet, thanks to turbocharging and direct injection, EcoBoost delivers the power of a much larger engine.

Small made powerful








Turbocharging

Turbocharging uses the engine’s exhaust gases, which would otherwise be wasted, to push more highly compressed air into the engine. This provides a huge boost in power while variable cam timing helps eliminate “turbo lag” at low rpm.





2.3L EcoBoost vs. 3.7L V6

In 2015, Mustang was launched with its first ever EcoBoost engine. Despite its smaller size, it generates 100kQ/L. That's 66% more power per litre than the 3.7L V6!

The EcoBoost trophy case


Ford’s ground-breaking 1.0L engine has won nine engine “Oscars” in five years. It is the only engine ever to be named overall winner three times in a row.

 



Did you know?


A street-legal Formula Ford racing car with a specially-tuned
1.0L EcoBoost has clocked one of the fastest laps ever at Germany’s
legendary Nurburgring circuit. Its impressive time of just 7’22”
beat the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari Enzo.
