Ford says EcoBoost will help you save hundreds in fuel costs

Ford’s new EcoBoost engine, a system that uses gasoline turbocharged direct-injection technology, is capable of delivering up to 20 percent better fuel-economy. FoMoCo believes that that 20 percent can help you save ‘up to hundreds of dollars’ in your wallet.

If you take your estimated 15,000 mile range a year and use the average fuel price of $3.25, EcoBoost’s V6 engine can save you up to $340 a year in gas money. Not only that, consumers don’t have to sacrifice performance in the process. The 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine produces an estimated 340-hp and 340 ft.-lbs. of torque.

The Ford vehicle to be equipped with the company’s EcoBoost technology will be the 2009 Lincoln MKS. Ford says that it will be product over half a million EcoBoost powered cars annually in North America within the next 5 years.
