Traditional petrol engine thinking is that size equals power. That's why our EcoBoost engine technology has amazed the sceptics. While their smaller size delivers greater fuel economy, their power output is that of a larger traditional petrol engine.

A combination of direct fuel injection and turbocharging is the key to EcoBoost's small engine fuel efficiency and big engine power. Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) completes the picture.

EcoBoost engines can reduce fuel consumption by up to 20% and help reduce CO2 emissions.

Direct fuel injection

Every drop of fuel is burnt by injecting a highly pressurised, precise amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder in the engine. An electronic control system varies the timing and intensity of each injection to match the engine's operating conditions. This improves fuel efficiency and delivers smoother performance.


Turbocharging uses the engine's exhaust gases, which would otherwise be wasted, to push more highly compressed air into the engine. The more air in the combustion chamber, the more power you get out.

Together with variable cam timing, it generates high torque low in the rev range (rpm) and maintains peak power over a wide range. This gives immediate responsive power when you accelerate.

Cool air intake valves and hot air exhaust valves simultaneously overlap so more air flows through the combustion chambers for a very cool, dense charge that helps build torque in the engine. The extra air flow also helps the turbocharger's turbine to run faster so engine output builds very quickly, virtually eliminating any 'turbo lag'.

No balance shaft

The traditional fast-rotating balance shaft used to offset shaking forces for greater refinement adds weight, cost and uses a lot of fuel. So we took it out of our 1.0L EcoBoost engine. Instead, we deliberately unbalanced the flywheel and front pulley in a way that combines mathematically with piston movements to offset shaking forces for a highly refined performance.

Currently, there are 125 patents across all EcoBoost engines.


Why stop using your devices when you drive? SYNC™ is a fully integrated, voice activation system, created in partnership with Microsoft, which lets you use your favourite devices while your hands stay safely on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

Make and receive calls and a range of other phone features, depending on
your phone model, totally hands-free.

Continue a call when getting into or out of your car. The call is automatically
transferred between your handset and SYNC™ when you start
the engine or turn it off. So there's no need to hang-up and re-dial.

Ask SYNC™ to play specific tracks, artists, genres, albums and more,
hands-free, when you plug your MP3 player into the USB outlet,
if your music is categorised.

Stream music wirelessly from your Bluetooth®* phone or music player.

Connect with some of your favourite smartphone applications,
hands-free with Ford AppLink™.

The software

Specially-created Microsoft Auto software works with just about any
current MP3 player or Bluetooth® mobile phone.

Your mobile phone connects (pairs) via Bluetooth® technology. SYNC™ automatically
connects to your paired phone when you turn the engine on - you don't even need to
take it out of your bag or pocket.

You can pair more than one phone and make one your favourite so SYNC™
automatically connects to it if there's more than
one paired phone in the car.

SYNC™ can automatically download your phone contacts, each time you drive,
so you can call people just by saying their name.
The system doesn't store your contacts so your private information is secure.

Upgrades and new features and capabilities are easily downloaded
via the SYNC™ Owners website.





The hardware

A 4.2-inch screen in the centre console lets you see your settings
and current SYNC™ status and mode.

A microphone flush-mounted near the rear view mirror allows SYNC™
to listen to your commands.

Bends throw up the odd surprise for any driver, forcing you to make sudden corrections that compromise grip and control. Torque Vectoring Control balances braking and speed for improved handling. Even in less than perfect conditions.

G-forces naturally transfer more traction to your outside wheels than your inside ones in a corner.

Take a corner too fast and understeering may occur, especially in front-wheel-drives, causing your vehicle to slide to the outside edge of the turn, rather than going in the direction you want to go.

Using the braking system to imitate the effect of a torque vectoring differential, Torque Vectoring Control steps in before wheel spin occurs.

Light brake force is applied to the front inside wheel as soon as it begins to lose grip, sending more engine torque to the outside wheel that has more grip.

This increases traction in the direction you want to travel and improves the steering ability of the inside tyre.

The front end hugs every corner for improved traction and handling when accelerating through corners.

Originally developed for sports vehicles to avoid the need for a limited slip differential and other costly components, it is now a standard feature on a number of Ford vehicles.


More steel means more protection. But the conundrum for our engineers was, how do we give you extra protection without adding extra weight that could cost you fuel savings? They looked to the aerospace industry for the answer and found it in boron steel.

Boron steel is an ultra-high-strength steel that Ford uses, along with low-alloy and dual-phase steels, to help protect you while still passing on fuel savings.

Because it can be melded into thinner components than normal steel, it's lighter while still remaining super strong and stiff.

Their high yield and tensile strengths allow us to form complex shapes that can be welded into key areas, such as pillars and bumpers.

Boron steel is used in the door intrusion beams of all Ford vehicles to help protect passengers in the event of a side impact, as well as other key areas on specific models, depending on their size and usage.

Did you know?

Boron steel is used in widely diverse ways, from enamels and golf clubs, to pyrotechnics and nuclear reactors.


Fumbling for your car keys. Inevitable reality or unnecessary evil? We decided it should be neither. That's why we made it easy to get into your Ford without having to have your keys in your hand.

As long as your key fob is with you, in your bag or pocket, the system senses when it's within range of your car.

Just pull on the front door handles and they'll unlock.

Once inside, put your foot on the brake, hpress the START/POWER button and drive away. There's no need to have your keys in your hand at any time.

If your key fob loses battery power, it has a removable key that lets you unlock the doors. You can then insert your key fob into a special slot in the dashboard that allows you to use the START/POWER button as usual.

Your key fob is programmed for use with your car only.

Did you know?

The key fob works within a 90cm radius of the vehicle.
