Ford produces two millionth EcoBoost engine


The Ford Motor Company is renowned as being among the most successful and trusted of all automotive names, with their tireless work ethic and desire to push boundaries enabling them to produce a fleet of cars suitable for all types of driver.

The motoring giant recently celebrated the creation of their two millionth EcoBoost engine - a milestone which serves as the perfect commemoration of the firm's striving to take car technology to the next level. The 2.0L unit was crafted at the company's plant in Louisville earlier this week, with the power source being given the same care and attention as all of the 1,999,999 which were produced before it.

Offering the unusual combination of superb throttle with increased environmental benefits, the 1.0L EcoBoost, for example, offers the same performance as a conventional 1.6 petrol engine whilst emitting less than 100g/km of CO2. The engines also boast superb consumption levels, meaning that new Ford car drivers all over the world are enjoying far fewer trips to the petrol pump. The growing demand for the engines across the world's markets – including Ford UK – has led to a huge increase in annual demand, with factory production increasing to 100,000 at the Louisville plant from 65,000 last year.

The EcoBoost brand has grown considerably since it was first revealed to the world in 2009, now available in every region Ford serves worldwide, as well as being offered in a variety of sizes: the 1.0L three-cylinder, 1.5L, the 1.6L and 2.0L four-cylinders, and the jaw-dropping 3.5L V6. The firm clearly sees the engine as the driving force behind their future success, having confirmed plans to facilitate fitting it in 80% of all their new cars, in addition to already established EcoBoost models like the Ford Fiesta for sale, before the close of the year.

If you are looking into purchasing a new car and want to reap the many benefits which the EcoBoost engine can bring, don't hesitate in heading to one of the expert Ford dealerships across Southern England.
