Ford EcoBoost Engine Technology: More with Less

It’s a simple fact: Even with advancements in technology, the majority of vehicles worldwide – millions of vehicles – will be powered by petrol.

Ford’s new EcoBoost™ petrol turbo direct-injection engines can help provide up to 20 percent better fuel economy without sacrificing power that drivers want.

EcoBoost engines will be introduced to South Africa later this year, with the launch of the 2.0 EcoBoost powertrain in the Focus ST. 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine will be made available in the EcoSport models in South Africa in 2013.

EcoBoost philosophy:

Delivers significant Fuel Economy and CO2 emission improvements
