New tiny ecoboost motors for Fiesta (Europe 1st of course)

Source - Motor Trend Vol- 62 No. 3 By European Editor Paul Horrell

"Ford will adapt its EcoBoost concept to three-cylinder engines with 0.9- and 1.2-liters, the engine will be capable of about 135 horsepower and 135 pound-feet of torque from about 1500 rpm.

The engine will be available in the fiesta from its mid-cycle face lift about three years from now. In Europe, it will eventually go into the Focus too, replacing the current 1.6- and 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas engines. It will probably be considered too small for a U.S. Focus.

EcoBoost works by combining three critical technologies: dual variable valve timing for the twin-cam head, gasoline direct injection means a higher compression ratio of 10:1 can be used for much greater efficiency than regular turbo engines. There is no possibility of knock because the fuel is injected late in the cycle, and less NOx is created because the evaporating fuel cools the intake charge.

The overall result is an engine with impressive power and torque curves, good throttle response, and great efficiency because the downsizing means less friction and mass and more efficient light-throttle running.

Using small engines with fewer cylinders also improves handling by cutting front-axle weight. This is especially important in small cars like the Fiesta.

The three-cylinder EcoBoost needs dual balance shafts to reduce vibration, but other will share most components with the four-cylinder.

Ford is introducing the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder in the Galaxy minivan and Mondeo sedan this spring.
It makes 200 to 250 horsepower and will replace five- and six-cylinder engines across the the European and U.S. Ford ranges."


So a 2.0L EcoBoost with 200-250hp in the future, sounds like we have our SVT/ST motor lined up. Also I'm very impressed by the 135hp output from 1.2L

It's not official but it makes sense. All other competitors like Opel (1.4, 1.6 L - 100, 115, 140, 180 ) and VW (1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 2.0 - 80, 102, 105, 122, 160, 210, 270 ) have lot's of engines so new Focus should have :
1.2 - 90-130 hp
1.6 - 130-180 hp
2.0 - 200-250 hp (250 hp in ST)
It really makes sense...
But I'm woundering is this 1.6 ECOBOOST based on Duratec/Zetec-SE
Is 2.0 L ECOBOOST based on mazda MZR 2.0 L Engine?

I believe both 1.6EB & 2.0EB predecessor is Ford Duratec

It's insane how much HP they can squeeze out of a 3-cylinder engine now. Major props to Ford for such an awesome achievement. I certainly hope it becomes an increasing trend among future subcompacts. Unfortunately I think it's going to be rather challenging to get the American market to adopt something like this at first, when most consumers try to aim for the highest number of cylinders at the cheapest price.

Although I love the sound and torque of my 5-cylinder, 2.5L engine... it's not exactly the most economical in its class. I also notice that my turning radius suffers a little as well; at least compared to my old Focus with its smaller engine. It's an engine designed by VW exclusively for the North American market, specifically because it has all the big numbers that attracts American consumers. It definitely delivers, but it's not ideal when other manufacturers can squeeze out equal or better performance with smaller engines.

I guess that's why I'm excited to see this news. Ford is definitely setting a milestone by popularizing this sort of technology, and hopefully getting the world to open its eyes that bigger isn't always better. And it's even better that it doesn't have to rely on any sort of complex hybrid technology, which unfortunately everyone seems to be buying into nowadays.
