The Advantages of the Ford Ecoboost Engine Technology

Updated on December 13, 2013

Ford Ecoboost is a gasoline engine that uses turbocharged, direct injection technology. Ford produced and developed this engine. Ford Ecoboost has better mpg and performance than conventional engines, and it is also intended to be a reasonable and flexible alternative. Ford plans to use this engine in many cars and trucks that it will design and develop in the future.

With the ever increasing threat of global warming, many consumers and companies strive to reduce our greenhouse emissions. The constant hiking of gasoline prices is also another driving factor why there is a growing enthusiasm on using less gasoline. With this in mind, Ford designed and developed the Ecoboost technology. Its production began in 2009. Ford Ecoboost engines are 20 percent more fuel-efficient than gasoline engines of the same size without the Ecoboost technology. This means that they have better gas mileage. These engines also produce 15-percent less greenhouse emissions. These characteristics are similar to that of hybrid engines and diesel engines.

One of the car models produced by Ford in 2013 is the Ford Fusion. This car uses the Ecoboost engine technology. It can either have a 1.6 liter engine or a 2.0 liter engine. The cost of the 1.6-liter variant is around $25,290 while the price of the 2.0-liter variant is $26,745. The car can either have a 6 speed manual transmission or a 6 speed automatic transmission. It has great style and body, and it also gathered positive feedback from reviews by buyers and car magazines. Its fuel economy for city driving is 22 to 25 mpg while its fuel economy for highway driving is 31 to 37 mpg. It can reach 60 mph from 0 mph in 6.6 to 8.5 seconds and has a top speed of 120 mph. These statistics show that the performance of this car is at par with other vehicles without the Ecoboost technology, and you can expect future cars from Ford to offer the same or better performance.

      Nice article but I'd rather get a Toyota. Have seen nothing but problems with Fords (except their F150) with 100k miles or more.
