Ford 1 litre EcoBoost Engine Scores a Hat-trick
Ford’s small yet mighty 1 litre EcoBoost engine has made motor history by scooping an International Engine of the Year award for the third year in a row at Engine Expo 2014 held in Stuttgart.
The 1.0 litre engine claimed the award for the overall title of International Engine of the year as well as winning the award in the ‘less than 1 litre’ category. The 16th International Engine of the Year Awards, which are judged by a panel of over 80 industry experts saw this tiny engine making award history by winning the same award for the third year in a row.
The EcoBoost technology featured in the engine has been recognised again this year for its performance, state-of-the-art technology, and above all- its unparalleled economy. The EcoBoost technology can be found in many models of new Ford vehicles such as the Ford Fiesta, the Focus, and the C-Max.
To feature in the new Ford Mondeo
Ford have also announced that the 1.0 litre EcoBoost will be included in the new Mondeo which is set to be launched later this year. The engine will be making history yet again as the smallest engine to ever be put into such a large family car. Although the engine is so small that it can be taken on a commercial flight as carry-on luggage, the EcoBoost still packs a punch. With 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, you don’t want to judge this little engine on its size!
This award-winning and economic technology has been available across Europe and through Ford car dealers in the UK for a number of years now, with Ford buyers international in the US only just getting a taste of the EcoBoost for 2014.
