It’s three on three now, for Ford’s puny 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine that has re-claimed the prestigious title of the International Engine of the Year for the third consecutive time. The three-cylinder EcoBoost engine took the top spots for 2014 with 351 points, leaving behind Ferrari’s 4.5-litre V8 engine with 281 points and Volkswagen’e 1.4-litre TSI unit with 254 points. Since its international debut in 2012, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has collected as many as 17 awards across the globe. 

In the global markets, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is available in the Ford Fiesta, B-Max, Focus, C-Max, Grand C-Max, Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Tourneo Courier and the Ford Mondeo. In the Indian market, the critically acclaimed engine made its debut with the hugely popular EcoSport crossover. 

The three-cylinder unit whose engine block rests within the area of an A4 size paper is offered in three states of tune: 100PS, 125PS and 140PS. The unit features one of the smallest turbochargers seen in the industry along with other innovative technologies likes aluminium cylinder head with an integrated exhaust manifold, low tension piston rings, low friction crank seals and a cam belt that is covered in oil for low maintenance. 

Commenting on the results, Dean Slavnich, co-chairman of the 16th International Engine of the Year awards and editor of Engine Technology International magazine said, “This year’s competition was the fiercest yet, but the 1.0-litre EcoBoost continues to stand out for the all the right reasons - great refinement, surprising flexibility and excellent efficiency. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is one of the finest examples of powertrain engineering.”
