Ford's innovative small engine gets industry recognition

Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has won the SMMT Award for Automotive Innovation 2013.

The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine, which uses a turbocharger to deliver performance to beat that of a more conventional 1.6-litre unit, started life at Ford’s Dunton Technical Centre in Essex.

The engine delivers 123bhp, achieves 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of just 99g/km, around 20% better than more traditional motors.

The engine is currently available in the Ford Fiesta, Focus, B-MAX, C-MAX, Tourneo Connect and Transit Connect models, and will also feature in the EcoSport SUV and the next generation Mondeo in 2014.
