Ford’s EcoBoost Engine wins UK innovation award
The Fleet World Honours have just taken place, with Ford once again taking three of the largest and most influential awards of the night including ‘The Fleet World Innovation award'.
The Innovation award was handed to Ford for its new 1.0-litre turbo-powered EcoBoost engine; the engine is designed to deliver high levels of performance whilst remaining economical. The engine has gained Ford many fans and has even scooped an award from Fleet World last month, when the EcoBoost equipped Ford Focus was named Best Company car by the magazine and numerous other web publishers.
Steve Moody, the editor of Fleet World commented upon the new Ford engines success saying: "Diesel dominates the fleet industry, but with its brilliant new EcoBoost engine, Ford has proved that petrol can offer an alternative. Already available in the Focus, this small, turbo-charged 125PS engine is a game changer."
