EcoBoost™


Traditional gas engine thinking is that size equals power. That’s why our EcoBoost engine technology has amazed the sceptics. While their smaller size delivers greater fuel economy, their power output is that of a larger traditional gas engine.

A combination of direct fuel injection and turbocharging is the key to EcoBoost’s small engine fuel efficiency and big engine power. Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) completes the picture.

Direct fuel injection

Every drop of fuel is burnt by injecting a highly pressurized, precise amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder in the engine. An electronic control system varies the timing and intensity of each injection to match the engine’s operating conditions. This improves fuel efficiency and delivers smoother performance.

Turbocharging

Turbocharging uses the engine’s exhaust gases, which would otherwise be wasted, to push more highly compressed air into the engine. The more air in the combustion chamber, the more power you get out.

Together with variable cam timing, it generates high torque low in the rev range (rpm) and maintains peak power over a wide range. This gives immediate responsive power when you accelerate.

Cool air intake valves and hot air exhaust valves simultaneously overlap so more air flows through the combustion chambers for a very cool, dense charge that helps build torque in the engine. The extra air flow also helps the turbocharger’s turbine to run faster so engine output builds very quickly, virtually eliminating any ‘turbo lag’.
