Ford is betting heavily on the Ecoboost technology. The proof of this can be found under the hood of LeMans winning Ford GT. Even the road going GT utilises the same 3.5-litre Ecoboost engine from the racecar. The Ecoboost engine lineup can be found in nearly all Ford vehicles including Fiesta, Focus RS, Ecosport, Transit Van, Mustang, and even on its Pickup trucks.

Ford Ecoboost Engine Technology

In simple terms, an ideal Ecoboost engine combines direct injection with turbocharging. Direct injection directly releases the fuel into the combustion chamber instead of air tract, thereby giving more control over the amount of fuel burnt. And the turbochargers increase the pressure with which the air enters the chamber. The combined result oof this is an extremely efficient engine that does not compromise on power.
