What is a Ford EcoBoost Engine and What Makes it Special?


If you've been looking into buying a new Ford vehicle, chances are you've come across the term EcoBoost engine. While you can probably deduce that the EcoBoost engine pertains to a specific engine type, you may not know exactly what separates an EcoBoost engine from a traditional engine type. That's why we're going to take a quick minute to explain some of the ways that the Ford EcoBoost engines are different, and how they can benefit you and your driving needs!


EcoBoost engines are exclusive to Ford vehicles only and are designed to provide drivers with a terrific combination of power and performance without sacrificing fuel economy. It's been said that an EcoBoost engine can achieve around 30% better fuel efficiency than a comparable traditional engines with up to 15% fewer emissions. To put it simply, EcoBoost engines offer a combination of turbocharging and direct fuel injection, allowing them to achieve greater fuel efficiency without having to give up engine power. Turbocharging is essentially when more air is forced into an engine, while direct fuel injection allows fuel to get to the engine more easily and erases unnecessary steps, and when combined more air with more fuel, it equals more power, hence the EcoBoost engine and it's rising popularity.
