Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

In about three years, the new EcoBoost 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine from Ford Motor Co. will enter global production. But according to an insider source familiar with the engine, there is still no timetable for a US version.

The source added that it isn't happening yet for North America. The source added that the subject is certainly being discussed but there's still no vehicle planned for it yet.

There are talks for the next-generation Ka, a front-drive car that is even smaller than the 2011 Fiesta, to make it to the US market.The Ka is currently being sold in Europe.

The three-cylinder engine and the Ford Start concept are displayed at the 2010 Beijing auto show. But at the show, there was no mention of the timetable for this engine. The Start, a stylish two-passenger concept, has exterior body panels that are made from deformable, pre-colored recyclable materials.

On the other hand, the interior panels are made of natural sisal fiber. During the unveiling in the Beijing show, Ford revealed that its horsepower and torque are similar to what a normally aspirated 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine could produce.

The exact ratings were not provided however. The 1.0-liter engine will utilize a cast iron block, cast aluminum cylinder head and cast aluminum sump. A 10:1 compression ratio is anticipated. Ford stated that the engine is intended for small vehicles like the Start concept.
