EcoBoost engine technology is Ford’s latest and greatest attempt at revolutionizing the gasoline engine. Ford engineers were challenged to produce a powerful, yet fuel-efficient turbocharged engine to replace the current lineup of high performance Ford motors. After years of research and development, Ford announced that they had created the Ford EcoBoost turbocharged engine - available at Joe Myers Ford and capable of 20% better fuel economy and a 15% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over a traditional engine. One of the most extraordinary features of the Ford EcoBoost engine is the fact that a 6-cylinder EcoBoost F-150 can produce the results of a typical 8-cylinder engine, and the 4-cylinder like a 6, giving you better power and performance on the road.
So how does the EcoBoost engine achieve such amazing results? Dual water-cooled turbochargers take energy from the engine’s exhaust that would otherwise be wasted and uses it to rotate a turbine wheel which is coupled to an air compressor to significantly increase the EcoBoost’s per-liter output. However, turbocharged engines aren’t usually known for their gas-saving abilities. But by utilizing fully machined direct gasoline injection and a Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) system, the EcoBoost saves fuel and greatly improves overall performance.
Ford is on track to equip 90% of its North American nameplates with EcoBoost, including 1.6 liter models, 2.0 liter models, and a 3.5 liter EcoBoost F-150 that delivers best-in-class fuel economy. Join Joe Myers Ford in the EcoBoost revolution today!
