The 1.0L EcoBoost engine, first released in 2012, has recently been awarded as the International Engine of the Year for the sixth consecutive year. With the engine’s sophisticated engineering, it’s no wonder the brand has fit its top-selling compacts with the 1.0L turbocharged powertrain.
“Our 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has been a game-changer, setting the benchmark for compact, fuel-efficient engines with sophisticated EcoBoost turbocharging, direct fuel injection and Twin-Independent Variable Camshaft Timing technologies,” said Joe Bakaj, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “Even with 10 International Engine of the Year awards under our belt, we’re still finding ways to push back the boundaries of powertrain engineering, and deliver even more benefit to our customers from this acclaimed small engine.”
