The next big Indian auto market launch, Ford EcoSport compact SUV 1.0L EcoBoost engine provides power that can face off a 1.6 l four cylinder engine. With fewer moving parts, emissions are low, and energy efficiency is optimum. It’s no surprise then that Ecoboost vehicles are ordinarily available at a premium when compared to Ford’s other engines. However, Ford EcoSport launch price in India will be highly competitive.
Ford’s highly efficient EcoBoost engines have been hogging the limelight ever since they made their presence felt. The company has sold over 530,000 EcoBoost engined vehicles in the past three and half years while they have injected much investment into its future development. Ford EcoBoost engines have proved their mettle not only where performance is concerned but are highly fuel efficient to boot, which is what has contributed to its reputation. Ford has announced an outstanding investment in its two plants in Ohio, besides a bid to employ a large number of workers to cater to this increased demand. Ford EcoBoost engines are available at a premium of $1,000 over their other engines and are well suited to the demands of a varied range of vehicles. Europe will see the upcoming 1.0-liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta.
These turbocharged, direct injected engines are seen in Ford Fiesta and extend all the way upto F-150 truck. It is EcoBoost powered Fusion sedan which has seen highest demand and is produced from company plant in Valencia, Spain. Ford is concentrating on expansion of facilities at their Cleveland plant from where F-150 3.5 liter V6 is produced. This expansion will enable the company to cater to increased demand which is expected by 2015.
