Optimising fuel economy
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 as compared to larger conventional engines.
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.
The EcoBoost trophy case
Ford’s ground-breaking 1.0L engine has won eight engine “Oscars” in four years, between 2012 and 2015. It is the only engine ever to be named overall winner three times in a row.
