Ford Motor Company produced over 1.6 million EcoBoost engines globally in 2014, an increase of over 30 percent from 2013.
In addition, The Blue Oval now manufactures over 190,000 EcoBoost engines per month, a figure that is up an astounding 90 percent from calendar year 2013, and produced the fifth-million EcoBoost motor in March 2015.
Introduced in 2009, EcoBoost engines are a cornerstone of Ford’s global engine strategy meant to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. EcoBoost engines are capable of delivering significantly better fuel economy than larger-displacement engines by using smaller overall engine size (displacement) combined with turbocharging, gasoline direct injection and variable valve timing. The trifecta combo delivers the power customers want and the fuel economy they need, according to Ford.
