How Does EcoBoost® Work?

Ford EcoBoost® engines combine turbocharging and direct injection to produce power and efficiency.

A turbocharged engine uses exhaust gas to drive a turbine, which spins an air compressor to push oxygen into the cylinders, allowing them to burn more fuel. The result is a dramatic boost in power.

With direct injection added to an engine, gasoline is highly pressurized and injected directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder, eliminating the need for an intake tract or cylinder port, resulting in less wasted fuel and greater efficiency.
