Benefits of Ford EcoBoost Engine Technology

For a number of years, Ford has been committed to finding ways of increasing the fuel economy of their vehicles, while at the same time preserving the superior performance that they are so well known for. One of the ways they have been able to achieve this balance is with their Ford EcoBoost technology, which is becoming more widely available in a number of their vehicles.

As we told you a while back when explaining the highly sought-after engine technology and what it is all about, EcoBoost simply means that the engine takes on fewer cylinders to help increase overall fuel efficiency, and it compensates for the loss in size by taking on a turbo system. This is of course one of the biggest benefits of the system. You can get the fuel economy of a smaller four-cylinder engine and the power and performance of a larger V6. It truly is a win-win.

It is also worth noting that in vehicles where there are two engines of the same size, the one that has the EcoBoost technology is always going to be the better option. Take the Ford F-150 for example. It has two 3.5-liter V6 engines, but as one comes turbocharged, it’s able to pull off power ratings more commonly found in larger V8 engines, but it holds onto fuel economy ratings that are comparable to the six-cylinder engine that does not have the EcoBoost technology.

Another one of the advantages of the technology is that it doesn’t come with a ridiculously high price tag. Most of the revolutionary new engine systems out there are only optional and require a significant amount of money to be added to the vehicle, but such is not the case with the Ford EcoBoost technology. On the contrary, the technology is standard equipment in a vast number of vehicles outfitted with the blue oval, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank.

If you really want to get a full grasp of the benefits of Ford EcoBoost technology, we encourage you to schedule a test drive here at our dealership. We have a wide variety of 2014 and 2015 models that are equipped with the efficient, turbocharged engines and would be more than happy to help get you behind the wheel of one.
