What makes the EcoBoost® engine different?
The first Ford EcoBoost® engine was first produced in 2009 and has since spread to a variety of Ford vehicles. But what exactly is an EcoBoost® engine? Well, EcoBoost® is what Ford named its line of turbocharged engines with direct fuel injection, which are more powerful and fuel-efficient than a conventional engine of the same size. Typically, the brand limits its EcoBoost® line to engines between 1.0 liter and 3.5 liters in size.

How does the EcoBoost® engine work?
EcoBoost® engines are turbocharged, so they feature a turbine-driven component on the exhaust that compresses air and forces it into the combustion chamber. Because the engine receives more air than it would naturally, the power output of an EcoBoost® engine is higher than that of an identical engine without a turbocharger. The performance of EcoBoost™ engines is also enhanced with direct injection, which mists the combustion chamber with a precise amount of fuel in order to maximize the engine’s power output and fuel efficiency. Watch the video explanation below for a more technically detailed explanation of the EcoBoost® engine.
