Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is a transverse-mounted, inline three-cylinder turbo gasoline direct fuel injection with Ti-VCT. It uses a low inertia turbocharger, split cooling system and direct fuel injection to deliver surprising levels of performance from the 3-cylinder engine block.
Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine (named International Engine of the Year 2013 and 2012) enables the new model to be more powerful than a first generation Ford Focus with a 1.6-liter engine from less than 10 years ago while producing 47% less CO2.
Even just a couple of years ago few people would have thought it possible that a medium-sized petrol car could break the 100 g/km CO2 barrier.—Barb Samardzich vice president Product Development, Ford of Europe
The new model that will be produced in Saarlouis, Germany, will extend to three the number of Focus models offered with the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, alongside the standard 100 PS version that offers 109 g/km CO2 emissions and the 125 PS (123 hp, 92 kW) version that offers 114 g/km CO2.
Introduced to the Fiesta, B-MAX, C-MAX and seven-seat Grand C-MAX last year, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine will be extended to the EcoSport SUV, Transit Connect and Transit Courier commercial vehicles; Tourneo Connect and Tourneo Courier people movers; and later the all-new Mondeo.
