“A few years ago, Ford committed to making fuel economy a top priority company-wide,” says Barb Samardzich, Ford’s Vice President of Powertrain Engineering. “Our hybrid vehicles led the way, and this new wave of powerful, refined gasoline engines is reasserting the company’s leadership position.”

Ford has invested heavily in developing their Ford Ecoboost engines. EcoBoost engines are turbocharged, direct-injected engines. They have helped to enhance Ford’s average fuel economy up to 20 percent by boosting smaller engines with direct injection. These engines have also helped to reduce carbon dioxide emissions up to 15 percent compared to the larger, less efficient engines they have replaced.

Ford has found their place among the leaders in fuel economy and is a motor company customers can expect even more great things from in the years to come.
