FoMoCo announced today that its successful EcoBoost engine technology hit a huge milestone with its 500,000th engine being produced just 3 years after the launch in 2009. The 500,000th engine was put into a 2013 Ford Escape that rolled off the line at Ford’s Louisville Assembly Plant.

By the end of Dec. 2012, Ford customers will be able to choose 8 Ford-built vehicles that deliver 40 or more miles per gallon — double the number available last year and more than any other car company.

Ford said that by 2013, more than 90 percent of Ford’s North American lineup will be available with an EcoBoost engine. Today, Ford offers EcoBoost engines in 11 North American nameplates, with four more coming in 2013.
