New EcoBoost Engine

Fri Jun 03, 2011 5:32 am

Anyone else here about Ford's new ecoboost engine? It's a 1 liter 3-cylinder little thing, and they're mating it to an 8 speed transmission!
the 1.0L three-cylinder will feature turbocharging, direct-injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing.

I see your sig says 2010 Fusion Hybrid - how do you like it? Will you be looking to get the Ford Focus Electric in addition or instead of the Fusion?

The Fusion hybrid is a great car, over 40 MPG & comfort but will trade it (or sell) for a Focus EV or C-Max Energi when the time comes (MY 2014 or so)
current = 2010 Fusion hybrid

I've been thinking a lot about the Fusion, thanks for the feedback.
What do you mean by 'MY 2014'?
