The second part of Ford's EcoBoost engine is gasoline direct injection, or simply direct injection. Direct injection is one form of fuel injection, which is the process used to send fuel into an engine. While typical fuel injection uses an extra step known as the intake tract to inject fuel, direct injection cuts out that process entirely.
EcoBoost is a series of turbocharged, direct-injection gasoline engines produced by Ford and originally co-developed by German company FEV Engineering and Mazda. The Ecoboost 2L and 2.3L are Ford turbocharged versions of the Mazda L engine.
EcoBoost improves fuel economy by as much as 20 percent but costs far less than the several thousand dollar increase hybrids and diesels demand. Merging split personalities ‘Eco’-friendly and turbo-‘Boost’, EcoBoost engines offer a unique combination of torque, horsepower, fuel economy, performance, utility, durability and reliability.
Ford’s range of EcoBoost engines are award winning. The smallest 1.0-litre was voted engine of the year for third year running in 2014, thanks to its combination of performance and fuel efficiency which, on paper, many other manufacturers’ units struggle to compete with.
Energy from the EcoBoost engine exhaust that would otherwise be wasted rotates a turbine. The turbine is coupled to a compressor that pressurizes incoming air into the combustion chambers, generating a virtually instantaneous surge of on-demand power, significantly increasing output per liter.
Ecoboost takes highly pressurized fuel and directly injects that fuel into the combustion chamber of each cylinder. It is the direct injection of fuel into the cylinders that gives you better fuel “eco”-nomy.
What Does EcoBoost Mean? By Product Expert | Posted in EcoBoost Engine, Ford on Tuesday, December 30th, 2014 at 5:03 pm What does EcoBoost Mean? If you’ve been following Ford’s rapid ascent to the top of the automotive industry these past few years, you’ve undoubtedly seen an article or two regarding the Ford EcoBoost Engine.
The EcoBoost grew to be so prominent in the Ford F-Series that the twin-turbocharged 3.5L motor became the base engine for F-150s beginning in 2015. In addition to the famed 3.5L motor, the Ford Motor Company unveiled a 2.7L V6 EcoBoost as a viable option in 2015 as well.
The EcoBoost direct injection system is designed for a lean mixture at cruising state and can deliver a richer mixture when the engine is under load, such as hard acceleration or hill climbing.
