Ford unveils new ecoboost engine for Focus in Europe

ABR Staff Writer Published 31 January 2012

Ford Motor has unveiled a new 1.0-liter ecoboost engine for its Focus range in Europe, replacing the current 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine.

The new EcoBoost engine will be offered in two power levels, in which the first delivers 100 hp with an efficiency of 58.9 UK mpg (4.8 liters per 100km or 49 US mpg ), while emitting 109g CO2 per km.

The second produces 125 hp and 170 Nm between 1,400 and 4,500 rpm, with an efficiency of 56.5 UK mpg and emits 114 g of CO2 per km.

Ford European executive powertrain director Graham Hoare said this is the third addition to the company's acclaimed EcoBoost engine family.

"Joining the 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre EcoBoost engines which span 150PS to 240PS, this 1.0-litre EcoBoost signals a new era of downsized, super frugal engines for the sub-130PS segment," Hoare said.

Ford said that the new engine which is developed by UK-based engineers at Dunton and Dagenham will also be offered in the B-Max, C-Max and Grand C-Max later in the year.

The new Ford Focus will be launched in the European market in February 2012.
