ECOBOOST

The Innovative technology behind EcoBoost


Ford engineers combined three key technologies designed to save fuel and boost power: direct fuel injection, variable camshaft timing, and turbocharging. An advanced software program ensures their seamless performance.

direct injection

Direct Injection

A high-pressure fuel system injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber, regulates how much fuel is needed at any given time, and cools the charge to enable higher compression ratios. This greatly improves efficiency while generating more power compared to a port-injected engine.

Variable camshaft timing

EcoBoost engines precisely control the intake and exhaust valves to match changes in engine speed and load. The result is improved fuel economy, reduced exhaust emissions, and increased low-end engine torque.

Extra Safety, Extra Savings

Turbocharging

Turbocharging uses the engine’s exhaust gases, which would otherwise be wasted, to push more highly compressed air into the engine. This provides a huge boost in power while variable cam timing helps eliminate “turbo lag” at low rpm.

Downsizing

Downsizing

EcoBoost’s lightweight design improves fuel economy, while fewer cylinders mean less friction and more energy saved. Yet, thanks to turbocharging and direct injection, EcoBoost delivers the power of a much larger engine.
