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."
