Ford EcoBoost Engine Technology: More with Less

It’s a simple fact: Even with advancements in technology, the majority of vehicles worldwide – millions of vehicles –
will be gasoline powered. Ford’s new EcoBoost™ gas-turbo direct-injection (DI) engines can help provide up to
20 percent better fuel economy without sacrificing power that drivers want.

DIRECT INJECTION (DI)

Gas Direct Injection


PISTON Highly pressurized fuel is
injected directly into the
combustion chamber of
each cylinder rather than
traditional mixing with the
incoming air in the inlet port.
Advantages include: more
precise delivery of fuel for
lower emissions, improved
volumetric efficiency and
avoidance of knock for
