EcoBoost Technology - Animation
Ford Motor Company is introducing a new engine technology called EcoBoost that will deliver up to 20 percent
better fuel economy on half a million Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles
annually in North America during the next five years.
The EcoBoost family of 4-cylinder
and 6-cylinder engines features turbocharging and direct injection technology.
Compared with more expensive hybrids and diesel engines, EcoBoost builds upon today's affordable gasoline
engine and improves it, providing more customers with a way to improve fuel
economy and emissions without compromising driving performance.
"EcoBoost is meaningful because it
can be applied across a wide variety of engine types in a range of
vehicles, from small cars to large trucks -- and it's affordable," said
Derrick Kuzak, Ford's group vice president of Global Product Development.
"Compared with the current cost of diesel and hybrid technologies,
customers can expect to recoup their initial investment in a 4-cylinder
EcoBoost engine through fuel savings
in approximately 30 months. A diesel will take an average of seven and
one-half years, while the cost of a hybrid will take nearly 12 years to
recoup -- given equivalent miles driven per year and fuel costs," he said.
Ford will introduce EcoBoost on the
new Lincoln MKS flagship in 2009, followed by the Ford Flex and other
vehicles. By 2013, Ford will have more than half a million EcoBoost-powered vehicles on the road annually in
In 2009, Ford first will introduce EcoBoost on the Lincoln MKS featuring a 3.5-liter
twin-turbocharged V-6. It will produce
the power and torque of a V-8 engine with the fuel efficiency of a V-6. In
fact, with an estimated 340-horsepower and more than 340
lb.-ft. of torque, the Lincoln MKS will be the most powerful and
fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive luxury sedan in the market.
More With Less
EcoBoost's combination of direct
injection and turbocharging mitigates
the traditional disadvantages of downsizing and Boosting 4- and 6-cylinder engines, giving
customers both superior performance as well as fuel economy.
With direct injection, fuel is injected into each cylinder of an engine in
small, precise amounts. Compared to conventional port injection, direct
injection produces a cooler, denser charge, delivering higher fuel economy
When combined with modern-day turbocharging -- which uses waste energy from the
Exhaust gas to drive the turbine --
direct injection provides the best of both worlds: the responsiveness of a
larger-displacement engine with fewer trips to the gas pump.
Ford's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, for
example, can deliver upwards of 340-plus lb.-ft. of torque across a wide
engine range -- 2,000 to 5,000 rpm versus 270 to 310 lb.-ft of torque for a
conventional naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V-8 over the same speed range.
At the same time, this V-6 gives customers an approximate 2 mpg improvement
and emits up to 15 percent fewer CO2 emissions to the environment.
Direct injection coupled with turbocharging allows for the downsizing of engines
that deliver improved torque and performance. A small 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine has the capability of producing
more torque than a larger 4-cylinder engine -- nearly an entire liter
larger in displacement -- with better fuel efficiency.
The real-world fuel economy benefit is consistent no matter the drive
cycle, meaning the engine is efficient in the city as well as on the
highway -- unlike hybrids, which are most efficient in stop-and-go traffic.
In addition, customers who tow and haul -- and have long turned to more
expensive diesel powertrains for their superior towing capabilities -- can
find the engine performance they need from an EcoBoost powertrain.
EcoBoost -- combined with
multi-speed transmissions, advanced electric power steering, weight
reductions and aerodynamic improvements -- is part of Ford Motor Company's
strategy to deliver sustainable, quality vehicles that customers want and
value. Additional hybrid offerings and diesel engines are planned for
Longer term, Ford plans to remain aggressive in the development of plug-in
hybrids and hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles.
"We know that what will make the biggest difference is applying the right
technology on volume vehicles that customers really want and value and can
afford," said Kuzak. "EcoBoost puts
an affordable technology within reach for millions of customers, and Ford's
systems approach adds up to a big idea that differentiates Ford's
sustainability strategy in the market."

Ford EcoBoost Engine 2011
All-New, Fuel-Efficient 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost
Engine to debut in European Focus range
All-new engine will debut in the European Ford Focus early in 2012 --
offering the performance of a conventional 1.6-litre engine with less than
120g/km CO2 emissions
Smallest EcoBoost engine features
advanced turbo-charging technology,
improved twin variable camshaft design and intelligent ancillaries to
deliver performance that belies its small size
Other European Fords to benefit from this new 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine include the C-MAX in 2012,
followed later by the highly acclaimed all-new Ford B-MAX
COLOGNE, Germany, Sep. 12, 2011 -- Ford has confirmed the first production
applications for its smallest-ever EcoBoost engine at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
With only 3 cylinders and 1.0 litre of displacement, the new EcoBoost engine will provide fuel-efficient power
for three models in the European product range -- first the Focus, followed
by C-MAX and the all-new Ford B-MAX.
The new 1.0-litre engine is the latest addition to Ford's global family of
EcoBoost engines, which currently
range in capacity from 1.6 to 3.5 litres globally. Downsized EcoBoost engines feature turbocharging, direct injection and other
technologies and replace larger engines with no loss of performance and
with lower consumption.
Ford will introduce two versions of the 1.0-litre engine in the Focus in
Europe in early 2012 with 100PS and 120PS and 5-speed and 6-speed manual
transmissions respectively. Ultimately, this all-new engine will be made
available in Ford models in North America, China and in other regions.
"By offering the Focus with an advanced small-displacement petrol engine
Ford is not only making a major statement on how serious we are about
engine downsizing -- it also shows the strength of our development and
engineering capabilities. To produce a 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with such impressive
performance and fuel economy is a clear example of our commitment to be
class-leading in fuel economy," said Graham Hoare, Executive Director,
Powertrain, Ford of Europe.
With its 1.0-litre capacity, the 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine will be the smallest engine
currently produced by Ford. Yet, despite its small capacity and
proportions, the forward-thinking design delivers power and performance to
rival a traditional 1.6-litre petrol engine while emitting less than
120g/km CO2 in the Focus.
Compact and Responsive
Developed at Ford's Dunton Technical Centre in the UK, this direct-injected
EcoBoost engine features a new
compact, high performance turbocharger
design. The extremely fast response of the turbocharger and its ability to reach nearly
250,000rpm results in virtually no turbo
lag and peak torque of 170Nm from 1,300-4,500rpm in the 120PS variant.
The all-new EcoBoost engine also
features an Exhaust manifold cast into
the cylinder head, which lowers the temperature of the Exhaust gases and in turn enables the engine to
run with the optimum fuel-to-air ratio across a wider rev band.
An advanced "split cooling" system reduces fuel consumption by warming the
engine more quickly and -- unlike the larger EcoBoost engines -- cast iron has been selected
for the block, reducing the amount of energy needed for warm-up by up to 50
per cent compared with aluminium.
Intelligent ancillaries such as a variable air-conditioning compressor and
oil pump also reduce demand on the engine -- improving economy and
emissions -- while special coatings for engine components and intricate
development of engine geometry result in minimal frictional losses.
Ford Auto-Start-Stop, Active Grille Shutter and Ford Smart Regenerative
Charging will also be available as part of the Focus and C-MAX 1.0-litre
Like its larger capacity siblings, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine will use Ti-VCT twin variable
camshaft timing to further improve performance and economy. Ford has also
employed an all-new camshaft actuator to speed up response times without
Smooth and Refined
In the all-new 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost engine, the emphasis in development has
been on delivering both smooth and refined performance.
Engine refinement is improved thanks to an innovative design that immerses
the two main engine drive belts in oil -- resulting in quieter and more
efficient running but with the durability of a chain. Careful attention has
also been paid to mitigating the natural vibrations of the 3-cylinder
Rather than employ the traditional method of adding energy-draining
balancer shafts, Ford engineers have deliberately "unbalanced" the flywheel
and pulley to offset the engine configuration. Ford believes these
innovations combined with optimised engine mounts will deliver a truly
refined performance feel perfected during 720,000km of tests -- including
360,000km of durability trials and 10,000km of environmental testing.
