Ford to replace 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine after just 4 model years

https://media.ford.com/content/fordm...-driver-a.html

Quote:
Two new engines, for a total of three power options
In North America, the all-new Edge will feature three engine options, two of which are new powerplants – a standard twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. A normally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine will also be offered. All will be equipped with dual output exhaust and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Edge represents the first Ford vehicle to feature standard EcoBoost power.

The twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost, offering an estimated 245 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, is significantly improved over the previous 2.0-liter EcoBoost. Beyond efficiency advantages, this new engine will also provide more capability. Edge equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost can be specified with newly available all-wheel drive and a towing package capable of hauling a 3,500-pound trailer.

Among a host of changes to the 2.0-liter EcoBoost is a twin-scroll design enabling optimized camshaft timing for improved engine performance and reduced turbo lag. A new, lighter engine block casting along with new aluminum balance shaft assembly shaves six pounds from the engine’s gravitational weight. Other changes include lighter pistons; a newly designed, integrated exhaust manifold; and a new, high-pressure direct-injection fuel system for finer fuel atomization. These upgrades pave the way for an increased compression ratio of 9.7:1, up from 9.3:1, for improved overall fuel efficiency.
Straight from the horses mouth so to speak.

Wow, but a twin scroll setup is more efficent design, so I can see that. Now lets see what the 20 that goes in the foci st does. 300hp perhaps???

I'll believe the twin scroll part when we actually see a production engine, the K03 used in the Focus ST and Fusion 2.0 L EcoBoost was rumored to be a twin scroll, and was inappropriately mentioned in the literature as such but was in fact not.

Will it be in the 2015 ST, or not until the 2016 to give the Edge the exclusive use of the engine first and further create a 2010 to 2011 Ford Mustang style controversy? Only Ford will be able to tell us if it will have said engine at the Goodwood reveal.

That's awesome they are switching to a twinscroll. I had a twinscroll turbo in my Mini Cooper S and it had pretty much no turbo lag.

It makes sense considering that the 2.3 engine in the Mustang has a twin scroll turbo.

300 HP is RS territory and clearly wouldn't be appropriate for a ST.

If the engine is ready to go, I guess we will find out soon when the ST debuts at Goodwill. Also don't forget that the 2.3l ecoboost engine in the 2015 Mustang is twin scroll.

Oh, and yes this is my first post in a long while. I've been lurking here and there for the past couple of years, been busy with a lot of other things. Still have my focus though, next week will mark 10 years. Boy how time flies.

whats wrong with a little boost lag. the focus st needs it imo.... the tiny turbo cimes on too soon and then falls on its face. boost should come in a bit later and hold longer imo.

Install a K04...

To me the 2.0 doesn't sound completely new, just revised with a new turbo setup.
