1.0 Litre EcoBoost Engine of the Year

Ford's innovative 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has fought off the competition from supercars and premium brands to win the 'Oscar' of the engine world - International Engine of the Year - for an unprecedented third consecutive time.

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

Eighty-two automotive journalists from 35 countries judged the competition on such criteria as drivability, performance, economy, refinement and the successful application of advanced engine technology. 

Ford vehicles powered by the three-cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost, which was also named Best Engine Under 1.0-litre for the third time in a 

row, are available in 72 countries worldwide, with 20 per cent of all Ford cars sold in Ford's 20 traditional European markets powered by this engine. 

Launched in Europe in 2012 with the Focus, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost is now available in a further eight vehicles sold in Britain: Fiesta, B-MAX, EcoSport, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, Tourneo Connect, Transit Connect and Transit Courier. The next-generation all-new Mondeo continues the European product roll-out of the EcoBoost 1.0-litre later this year. 

More than 200 engineers and designers from Ford's research and development centres in Dagenham and Dunton, and in Aachen and Merkenich, Germany, spent more than five million hours developing the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which is assembled in Cologne, Craiova in Romania and Chongqing, China. 

"The 1.0-litre EcoBoost was created as a radical smaller-displacement engine to meet the biggest automotive challenge in the world - no compromise refinement, performance and great fuel-economy," said Ford of Europe Manager, gasoline calibration, Andrew Fraser. "The secret to EcoBoost success is a range of innovative technologies that deliver big car benefits from a small engine."
