Ford Adds New Efficient 1.0-Liter EcoBoost Engine With Eight-Speed Transmission To Lineup


Today, Ford released details on its new fuel saving 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine and eight-speed automatic transmission to its powertrain lineup. The engine will have three cylinders and deliver performance expected from a larger four-cylinder while getting better fuel economy and achieving lower emissions.

The new three-cylinder engine will be available globally in the company's smaller cars. The company is hoping this engine will play an important role in North America.

"Consumers are telling us they want to buy affordable vehicles that get many more miles per gallon," said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president of Global Product Development. "Our new 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine will give consumers looking for hybrid-like fuel economy a new, more affordable choice."

The all-new 1.0-liter engine will feature an offset crankshaft to improve fuel economy, an advanced split cooling system allowing for faster cylinder block warm ups, saving fuel and an exhaust manifold cast into the cylinder head for a wider rpm band for optimal fuel-to-air ratio.

The all new eight-speed automatic transmission will feature Ford's next-generation clutch controls, an input sensor, which enables faster selection of the proper gear, reducing hunting and helps for smoother shifts. As well, actuators will be built into the case for tighter, more precise control of hydrolic pressure and a closed-loop control.
