Ford Announces NEW Eco-Boost Engine!

Ford eco-boost

If, like many individuals in Waterford, Michigan, you are looking for a more fuel-efficient ride, then be sure to take a look at Ford’s plans for their eco-friendly line of engines. Since their debut in 2009, Ford has sold more than 600,000 vehicles containing its fuel-efficient Eco-Boost engines. In addition to ramping up current production of the current lineup in order to meet global demand, Ford has also announced that they are introducing a new, 1.5 liter Eco-Boost to their successful line.

The 1.5 liter Eco-Boost engine will join a 3.5 liter V6, as well as 2.0 liter, 1.6 liter, and 1.0 liter models, released between 2009 and 2012. By the end of 2013, Ford hopes to have Eco-Boost technology available in 80 percent of their vehicles around the world, meeting an increasing demand for more fuel-efficient transportation.

Those who purchase vehicles with the new 1.5 liter Eco-Boost engine can enjoy new innovations such as trademark supercharging, direct fuel injection and variable valve timing. While remaining small enough to be truly efficient, the features of the new Eco-Boost allow drivers to experience the power of a much larger engine at the same time. In comparison to the 1.6 liter version, the newer model delivers better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions, with comparable horsepower and torque performance.

The newest addition to the Eco-Boost engine line can also equal tax savings for many drivers. A large portion of individuals are able to receive tax incentives for purchasing a new car with a 1.5 liter engine or smaller, in order to encourage drivers to go green and pick up more fuel-efficient vehicles.

The new Eco-Boost engine went into production at the end of April, and you should begin seeing it as an option in some of the latest and greatest Ford vehicles later this year. In the meantime, you can check out cars with previous incarnations of the eco-friendly engine here at Suburban Ford of Waterford! With any questions please feel free to contact us. We hope to see you soon!
