Ford CEO Allan Mulally revealed the 1.0 liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine recently at the official launch in Cologne, Germany. Mulally believes the new engine will be one of Fordís most significant engines of the modern day. ďThe new 1.0-litre EcoBoost and our entire family of EcoBoost engines represent technology breakthroughs that deliver power, fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions through turbocharging and direct injection. These engines are delivering the fuel-efficient vehicles customers want and value.Ē said Mr Mulally at the launch.

This is Fordís smallest engine to date and is said to fit into the shape of an A4 paper. It will be available in Europe from early 2012 in the new Ford Focus. Two output versions of the engine will be available Ė a 125 PS and 170 Nm version, which goes into the Focus, as well as a 100 PS variant. Production of the engine will initially take place at a new engine plant in Cologne but once the unit is introduced into more markets around the world, production will expand to facilities in Craiova, Romania.

In addition to the Ford Focus, the baby EcoBoost unit will eventually become available in the Ford Focus-based B-MAX, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX. Possible average fuel consumption figures are yet to be finalised. It looks like Ford has beaten VW in its own game of downsizing.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
