Perhaps there’s no such thing as “Too efficient”, that’s why engineers at Ford are not yet done with optimising its EcoBoost techinology. The engine has won several prestigious awards around the globe is indeed a technological marvel. Ford has revealed a yet another 1 litre engine at the Detroit Motor Show that’s under development and is based on the critically acclaimed EcoBoost technology.

Engineers have used several weight saving techniques like forged aluminium connecting rods, carbon fibre oil pan, front cover and cam-carrier, all of that together brings down the weight by about 15% i.e. about 13kgs. The most significant weight saving has been done in the engine block which is now made out of aluminium and utilises power metal inserts for critical areas.

The engine is still not production ready but Ford claims that the engine is 4.5% more fuel efficient and improved NVH characteristics.  Ford might also use the cylinder-deactivation technology to further enhance the economy at low load conditions.        

At present, Ford offers EcoBoost 1.0 litre engine in the EcoSport only, rest of the cars are powered by traditional engines. The recent measures that the Delhi government has taken to ban diesel engines of 2.0-litre and above capacity to reduce pollution in the capital may prompt manufacturers to introduce the SUVs with newer set of more-efficient petrol engines.
