Ford Doubles Small EcoBoost Engine Production - Coming to the U.S Soon
WESTLAND, Mich. - Ford Motor Company announced today that they will be doubling the production of their 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, due to high demand. The Cologne, Germany based engine plant will now be making more than 1,000 engines a day, hoping to triple the yearly production to around 480,000 engines by 2015, compared to 141,000 in 2011.
The EcoBoost engine is a turbocharged, petrol engine that is designed to deliver the power and torque of a larger engine, while achieving around 20% better fuel efficiency and producing 15% less greenhouse gases. This eco-friendly engine is a step in the direction of green living, and was named the 2013 International Engine of the Year for the second year in a row.
Ford plans to double small EcoBoost engine production due to an increase in demand that stems partly from the fact that the EcoBoost engine will soon be sold in the United States. The engine will be featured in the new Ford Fiesta later this year. Although it has been available in Europe, this is the first time that the engine will be offered in a vehicle to the United States. Thanks to the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, the 2014 Ford Fiesta is expected to reach 34 mpg, with an estimated 197 HP and 214 lb-ft torque with minimal turbo lag.
