Ford's three-cylinder EcoBoost engine was named the International Engine of the Year today for the second consecutive year.

The decision is made by a panel of 87 automotive journalists from 35 countries. This is only the third time in the history of the awards that an automaker has managed back-to-back victory.

Last year, Ford boasted about the engine's compact size by packing it into a suitcase and proving that it could fit into the overhead luggage compartment of an airplane. The engine currently powers Ford's European Fiesta, C-Max and Grand C-Max, while the North American Fiesta will get the engine this year.

A total of 11 awards are given out every year, mostly by displacement category. Ford won in both the sub 1.0-liter category ( the engine actually displaces 999 cc's), along with the overall "International Engine of the Year" category.
