EcoBoost is a range of turbocharged, direct injection gasoline motors developed jointly by Ford and FEV engineering and manufactured by the American vehicle maker since 2009. Engines of the range are able to provide torque and horsepower comparable to those characteristics of naturally aspirated engines with larger swept volumes. At the same time EcoBoost-equipped motors can achieve up to 20 percent better fuel economy and up to 15 percent less greenhouse emissions. According to Ford, this technology is more versatile and profitable than a further development or more extended use of diesel and hybrid engine technologies. Hence, the automaker utilizes EcoBoost technology in a variety of models.
EcoBoost range includes DOHC motors (I3, I4, and V6) with swept volume varying from 1.0 L to 3.5 L. Starting in 2012 Ford manufactures 750,000 EcoBoost-equipped models per year for the U.S. market and about 1.3 million units worldwide. Many models of the brand's lineup employe the technology, such as the Fusion, Focus, Mondeo, C-MAX, S-Max, Galaxy, Escape, Volvo S60, V60, Lincoln MKC, etc.
