Ford builds two-millionth EcoBoost engine

Ford Motor Company celebrates a manufacturing milestone for its fuel-saving EcoBoost engines - two-million have been produced globally since the 2009 launch of the engine line.

Growing customer demand for EcoBoost-powered vehicles in major
markets worldwide is driving engine production higher. Factory output now averages more than 100,000 engines per month, up from 65,000 in 2012.

"Ford EcoBoost delivers great performance with lower fuel bills, a recipe that is proving incredibly popular with consumers around the world," said Joe Bakaj, Vice-President, Powertrain Engineering for Ford. "“EcoBoost engines are attracting new customers to the Ford brand every day, and our plants are working hard to keep up with demand."

A Ford Escape powered by the two-millionth production EcoBoost - a 2.0-liter unit - rolled-off the line at Ford's Louisville, Ky.

Ford's global EcoBoost engine family now includes the 1.0-liter three-cylinder; 1.5-liter, 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines; and the powerful 3.5-liter V6. EcoBoost technology is available in every region Ford serves worldwide, and will be offered on approximately 80 per cent of the company's global nameplates by the end of this year.
