The Ford EcoBoost™ engines will power as much as 90 percent of the company’s North American nameplates by 2013.EcoBoost is available now in the Ford Flex and Taurus, and Lincoln MKS and MKT.

EcoBoost will be expanded to 11 global nameplates with the addition of three new variants.

More EcoBoost™ Engines Will Drive the Future for Ford

The next three EcoBoost engines include a:

•1.6-liter four-cylinder that will be offered in the European Ford C-Max
•2.0-liter four-cylinder for the next-generation Ford Explorer and Edge
•3.5-liter V6 for the Ford F-150

Ford engineers have upgraded the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 for rear-wheel-drive applications. In the F-150, the EcoBoost is expected to deliver best-in-class fuel economy along with the power and towing capability of a V8.

EcoBoost technology combines direct fuel injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and cut vehicle weight, while giving drivers the performance of a bigger engine.

While Ford is rolling out the first generation of EcoBoost engines, researchers are studying ways to create smaller future EcoBoost engines, while preserving performance and raising fuel economy.

“We are trying to get in front of the pack in leveraging EcoBoost for fuel economy,” Kapp said. “It’s going to be a trend in the industry, and we can’t rest on our laurels for one minute.

We are going to keep wringing more efficiency out of EcoBoost.”

EcoBoost is a key technology that will enable Ford not only to fulfill the company’s goal to be among the leaders in fuel economy in every segment, but also to meet the federal government’s new 35.5 mpg fuel economy standard, which takes effect in 2016.

The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
