Hey Guys

And again, the "Engine of the Year"-Award 2013 goes to Ford for their 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine, congratulations!
A panel of 87 automotive journalists from 35 countries around the world judged the awards on driveability, performance, economy, refinement and the successful application of advanced engine technology. Ford is one of three car makers to record back-to-back victories in the 15-year history of the awards.

The Ford 1.0-litre EcoBoost has also won the Royal Automobile Club Dewar Trophy for ‘outstanding British technical achievement in the automotive industry’. Most recently, Andrew Fraser, Ford’s gasoline calibration manager, was awarded the Jim Clark Memorial Award for his work on the engine by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers on June 1.

“Who'd have believed it? A 1.0-litre engine that has it all, powerful, fuel efficient, clean and lightweight,” said Peter Lyon, UK juror and freelance journalist. “This is a masterpiece.” The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine design and development was led out of Ford’s research and development centres in Dunton and Dagenham, UK.

Ford has confirmed plans to double production of the engine at its Cologne (Germany) engine plant to more than 1,000 engines a day from mid-August to meet demand.


The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is currently offered in Ford small and medium cars. It boasts up to 125PS while returning 65.7 mpg combined (in Fiesta). The engine is also available in the Ford B-MAX, Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX. Small enough to fit in the overhead luggage compartment of an aeroplane, the engine delivers best-in-class petrol fuel economy in Ford Fiesta, Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX.
