Ford Builds Two-Millionth EcoBoost Engine

Ford is marking production of the two-millionth EcoBoost engine, which rolled off the line in an Escape crossover in Louisville, Ky. last week.

The company says over 100,000 EcoBoost engines are produced every month and plans to continue ramping up production. Currently, the company offers five engine displacements under the EcoBoost umbrella that include 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 2.0-liter four-cylinders and a 3.5-liter V6 found in the Taurus SHO and F-150 pickup trucks.

Ford credits demand for more efficient engines with the high demand for its line of turbo powerplants, which have only been offered for the last four years. Despite being relatively new to the market, the company claims its EcoBoost line is the most recognized among consumers.

This year, the company will offer EoBoost engines in 90 percent of its nameplates in North America and by 2015 that will be true of 95 percent.
