Ford has announced a new engine design called EcoBoost, which is said to
raise power and increase mileage, while still reducing emissions.
EcoBoost gains power and efficiency with direct-injection and
turbocharging, similar to what is found on diesels. The EcoBoost is also
said to eliminate turbo lag.

Ford plans to offer EcoBoost engines in Fords, Lincolns and
Mercurys, and has announced two EcoBoost versions: a 3.5-liter V-6 and
an inline four-cylinder rated 275 hp with 280 lb-ft of torque.

The first 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost engine will be offered in a new
Lincoln MKS rated 340 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque (compared to a
conventional Ford 3.5-liter V-6, which is rated 265 hp). Ford says that
under normal driving conditions, the EcoBoost V-6 gets about 20 percent
better mileage than a comparable V-8.

    I think it’s great that consumers won’t have to sacrifice power for the sake of efficiency. This powered up Ecoboost engine has lots of power while still being environmentally friendly; win-win for all.
