Ford Wins Top Prize at International Engine of the Year Awards

IEOTYYesterday, the International Engine of the Year awards were announced, and Ford took home the top honor for the second consecutive year.

The Ford 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine won the International Engine of the Year award, earning 479 points from the award’s 87 voters. It is the highest accumulated score ever given, and with Ford’s back-to-back wins, it is only the third time that an automaker has won Engine of the Year for consecutive years.

Co-chairman of the International Engine of the Year Awards Dean Slavnich praised the engine and the work done by Ford, stating, “It says something very special about an engine when it can return to the awards for a second year and still be considered to be the best engine on the market. The victory is all the more impressive given that there are some spectacularly good new entrants into the market this year…but the Ford’s little 999cc unit managed to remain the judging panel’s favourite.”

International Engine of the Year – Ford 999cc three-cylinder turbo (479 points)

New 1.5-Liter EcoBoost Engine for 2014 Ford Fusion

Changes are coming for the 2014 Ford Fusion including a new engine and six powertrain options.

Currently, the Ford Fusion is equipped with a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine, but soon the engine will be replaced with a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine. This might not seem like a major change, but it has two big advantages. First, Ford will side-step a tax which affects Fusion sales in China, improving their bottom line. Second, it will improve fuel efficiency in the Ford Fusion. As an added bonus, Ford can also use the 1.6-liter engines in the Escape and other vehicles.

Last year, Ford announced other changes to engines in some of its more popular models. The 2014 Ford Fiesta will be getting a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, Ford’s smallest EcoBoost engine yet, and this trend towards higher fuel efficiency is expected to continue.
