Performance & Efficiency in Harmony

Ford EcoBoost® technology utilizes a combination of turbocharging and direct fuel injection to maximize both performance and fuel efficiency. The combination of these two engineering solutions allows EcoBoost®-equipped Ford models to provide immense capability while also achieving truly impressive MPGs. Read more about how each technique works to improve internal combustion engine efficiency.

The Ford EcoBoost Turbocharge 


Turbocharged engines produce more power than similarly sized non-turbocharged engines through the recycling of exhaust gasses. As gasses are expelled from the engine after combustion, the gasses are re-routed towards the turbocharger. The turbocharger is made up of two parts: Turbine and Compressor. Exhaust gasses enter the turbine side of the turbocharger, spinning the internal turbine fan in access of 200,000 RPM. The spinning turbine forces air into the compressor-side of the turbocharger, where it is then forced into the combustion chamber. The more air that can enter the combustion chamber, the greater the amount of fuel that can be used. The greater the amount of air and fuel that can be burned, the more power that's made!

Direct Fuel Injection 

Direct Injection

As we just learned, a turbocharger allows for a greater amount of fuel and air to enter the combustion chamber, allowing for maximum potential power. To ensure the proper amount of fuel is used as efficiently as possible, Ford EcoBoost® models use direct fuel injection. Specifically, EcoBoost® engines use Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) which sends pressurized gasoline directly to the combustion chamber. This system allows for more precise control of the air-to-fuel ratio, ensuring no more gasoline is burned than is completely necessary.
