These engines are a great choice for drivers looking to save at the pump without sacrificing power under the hood or splurging on a diesel or hybrid engine. To help you learn more about these revolutionary engines, the product specialists at Hopkins Ford in Elgin, IL have compiled the overview below.

Turbocharged Performance

On a typical engine, exhaust is expelled and serves no other purpose. In an EcoBoost® engine, however, energy from the exhaust is used to rotate a turbine. That turbine is paired with a compressor that pressurizes the air coming into the combustion chambers, generating a near instantaneous surge of power. This method drastically increases output per liter.

Direct Fuel Injection

Direct fuel injection uses an innovative method of fuel delivery by injecting a fine mist of fuel directly into the engine's combustion chamber, optimizing efficiency while maximizing power.
