- Ford to Debut 1.0-Liter EcoBoost Engine in Europe
Sep 12, 2011
Ford (NYSE:F) confirmed the first production applications for its smallest-ever EcoBoost engine at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The engine will debut in the European Ford Focus early in 2012, offering the performance of a conventional 1.6-liter engine with less than 120g/km CO2 emissions.
Graham Hoare, executive director, Powertrain, Ford of Europe said, "By offering the Focus with an advanced small-displacement petrol engine, Ford is not only making a major statement on how serious we are about engine downsizing - it also shows the strength of our development and engineering capabilities. To produce a 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine with such impressive performance and fuel economy is a clear example of our commitment to be class-leading in fuel economy."
Ford Motor (NYSE:F) has a potential upside of 84.1% based on a current price of $10 and an average consensus analyst price target of $18.41.
