Ford to offer EcoBoost engine across its lineup as a core powertrain

Article by Christian A., on September 15, 2010

It appears that Ford Motor Co. has big plans and wants to make its cars more friendly with the environment. According to Jim Farley, global head of sales, marketing and service, FoMoCo is planning to make EcoBoost engines the core powertrains across all of its model lineups. Furthermore, the manufacturer will also introduce new vehicle types such as minivans.

Its new strategy includes as many as 10 body styles of vehicles from the three core sizes: the subcompact known as B-segment which includes cars such as the Fiesta; the compact or C-segment such as the Focus; and mid-size cars which includes cars such as Fusion.

New compact vehicles that are about to come, include the new Escape which is currently being developed in coordination with the Ford Kuga crossover in Europe.

The new Grand C-Max compact minivan will go on sale on the United States in late 2011. Regarding the Fusion, this model is being consolidated with the Ford Mondeo, which is currently sold on the European market.

New vehicles from Ford could include minivans, utility and commercial vehicles, according to Jim Farley. A key in the future products would be the introduction of the smaller, turbocharged premium EcoBoost engine option on almost every vehicle.

"We intend to have EcoBoost across every one of our vehicles as a core powertrain," Farley said. “EcoBoost provides up to 5 miles per gallon better fuel economy than the competition,” he said. [via DetroitNews]
