FoMoCo’s V6 EcoBoost has yet to be launched but according to sources, the Detroit automaker is putting the finishing touches on a 2.0L 4-cylinder EcoBoost that may appear on the 2010 Ford Fusion.
Said Deep, a Ford spokesman, confirmed with the Detroit News that Ford is working of 4-cylinder EcoBoost engines but said it was “too early to discuss displacements” or which upcoming Ford vehicle will get the engine. The engine will deliver better fuel-economy while producing the power of a V6.
Ford’s 3.5L V6 EcoBoost will appear on the 2010 Lincoln MKS next summer. It produces a total of 340-hp with a maximum torque of 340 lb-ft by combining turbocharging and direct fuel-injection.
Product analyst Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics LLP in Birmingham Ford is also developing a 1.4L EcoBoost based on the naturally aspirated 1.4-liter it uses in Europe.
