Euro-Fords first to get four-cylinder EcoBoost this summer - Autoblog

Euro-Fords first to get four-cylinder EcoBoost this summer - Autoblog
by Sam Abuelsamid - on Mar 1st 2010 at 11:30AM
Ford is expanding its EcoBoost engine strategy to Europe this summer with the introduction of 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter inline-four cylinder engines. The EcoBoost range of turbocharged and direct injected gasoline engines debuted last summer here in North America with the launch of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 in the Ford Taurus SHO, Flex and Lincoln MKS and MKT.

Ford will debut refreshed versions of its S-Max and Galaxy minivans this summer, both of which will use the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that will also be available in the updated Edge later this year. In the European van applications, the 2.0-liter will be rated at 200 horsepower, which is on the low end for an engine of this type and displacement. Power numbers for the four-cylinder turbo in U.S. applications haven't yet been announced but will likely be in the 230–240 hp range to match the current 3.0-liter V6 used in the Fusion and Escape.

The smaller C-Max and Grand C-Max will be the first vehicles to use a 1.6-liter EcoBoost when they go on sale in the fall. The 1.6-liter will be offered in two power levels, 148 hp and 177 hp. For now Ford is only committing to installing the 1.6-liter in the two MPV variants. However, when we got our first preview of the Focus models that debuted in Detroit, Ford officials acknowledged that an EcoBoost-powered Focus would eventually join the 2.0-liter normally aspirated engine in North America.

American enthusiasts hoping for a chance to buy Ford's raucous 300-hp Focus RS that launched in Europe last year won't be getting that particular car. However, Ford is confirming this week at the Geneva Motor Show that a global performance car based on the new Focus is definitely coming with EcoBoost power. When the Explorer America Concept was unveiled in Detroit two years ago, Ford also talked about a 275-hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which would certainly be plenty in the Focus, especially if it stays front-wheel drive.

Re: Focus EcoBoost predictions

I'd hate to see the 3.0 V6 go away, its a **** good engine but I guess these new I4 EcoBoosts are going to top it in every way. Still tho I don't think I can own a 4 cylinder car... I like V6 engines and V8's they are balanced better and feel better on the highway

Re: EcoBoost predictions

tho this isn't anywhere near official,
wescoent @ GMI said that the 2.0EB (at least for one version)
will directly target the Sonata's 274 hp, 269 torque, 22/34mpg 2.0T
so
transplanting & updating from this thread

** 550hp = KeplerMotion (LINK)

The 3.5/3.7L is a less expensive to build and has better "packaging" capabilities than the 3.0L (it would take a lot of changes to put a 3.0L in a RWD vehicle). The Duratech 3.0 was also down on power (compared to the competition) until the recent "Power Improvement Program".

My "gut" says the 2.0L EcoBoost may cost more that the 3.5L (non-EcoBoost).

note: showing that it's the same hp-per-liter as the MKS

Is this the first official proof of a model getting more than one EB/SCTi?

Re: EcoBoost predictions

re-Re-RE-updated with the refreshed Mondeo's HP
(the yellow cells indicate a specific FoMoCo vehicle with that HP;
the
~~'s mean approximately)



* same MPG as the S-Max's 200hp version to the best of my understanding
** Kepler Motion super-hybrid

Re: EcoBoost predictions

^ Thanks, AM222

the 180PS (177.5hp) 1.6 EcoBoost SCTi is the C-Max, right? anything else?
&
what's the 150PS (148hp) 1.6 EcoBoost SCTi for?
that'd be the lowest HP-per-displacement I've seen
got a link?

I think the 150PS 1.6 EcoBoost replaces the 1.8 Duratec while the 180PS 1.6 EcoBoost replaces the 2.0 Duratec (at least outside North America)
This makes sense since according to Ford the 203PS 2.0 EcoBoost of the facelifted Mondeo, S-Max and Galaxy replaces the 2.3 Duratec.

It looks like the 150PS 1.6 EcoBoost SCTi will fill the gap between the naturally aspirated 125PS 1.6 Duratec Ti-VCT and the 180PS 1.6 EcoBoost SCTi.

About the 1.6 EcoBoost engines, here's the link: http://www.newfordfocusmedia.com/ass...echnology_.pdf

Same 1.6 liter and 2.0 liter EcoBoost engines will appear in the new Volvo S60 (at least outside North America), but rebadged as the GTDi...
