Ford Celebrates 2 Millionth EcoBoost Engine

Ford Celebrates 2 Millionth EcoBoost Engine

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich.- Worldwide, consumer demand for an engine that offers both performance and fuel efficiency has grown, specifically for the Ford EcoBoost engine. And as a result of that increasing demand, today Ford Motor Company celebrates the production of the 2 millionth EcoBoost Engine

The EcoBoost engine line launched just four years ago in 2009 and the automaker's recent manufacturing milestone is due to the drastic growth in demand for EcoBoost-powered vehicles. This interest in major markets worldwide has driven the recent increase in production. Factory output of Ford EcoBoost engines now averages more than 100,000 engines per month, when just one year ago output only averaged 65,000 engines per month!

But it's not surprising that attraction to the EcoBoost engine line has continued to increase. The engine's combination of a smaller overall size, turbocharging, direct injection, and variable valve timing provides drivers with excellent performance and a 20% increase in fuel economy compared to larger-displacement gasoline engines.

Today Ford celebrates the 2 millionth EcoBoost engine which was a 2.0-liter engine powering a new Ford Escape. But you can enjoy EcoBoost performance and fuel efficiency in approximately 80% of the automaker’s global nameplates powered by the five EcoBoost models: 1.0-liter three-cylinder, 1.5-liter, 1.6-liter, 2.0-liter four cylinder, and 3.5-liter V6!
