Ford EcoBoost Makes a Trip to China
We here at Anderson Ford love the EcoBoost engine. It's prevalent in many of the American automaker's offerings, including models like the Ford Taurus and F-150, but so far it's only been available to drivers in the U.S. market. That, however, is about to change, as the EcoBoost engine will soon be making a trip overseas into the Chinese market, where Ford hopes to boost sales with it.
Fuel economy is the name of the game with the EcoBoost engine. And with so many drivers these days looking to get more distance out of their latest fill up, it only makes sense that Ford would make their latest technological innovation available to more and more consumers. The engine itself is supposed to arrive on dealership lots in the country by 2015, and it will debut in 15 models in the Ford lineup there.
Another big selling point that Ford vehicles are set to gain is the new direct injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and six-speed transmissions. These bad boys work to deliver an extra 20 percent in fuel economy, and they also work to cut emissions by 15-20 percent.
"Ford is committed to be a fuel economy leader in every segment that we compete by utilizing advanced powertrain technologies. These technologies represent a core part of our near-term sustainability goals in China," explains Kumar Galhotra, VP Product Development, Ford Asia Pacific and Africa.1
