Default Is Ford Testing the 1.0L EcoBoost in the Fusion for North America? [Video]

Quote:
Ford has heavily invested into turbocharging with the EcoBoost line of engines. TFLcar has run into several Ford and Lincoln vehicles testing at high altitude. We caught a glimpse of the engine bays and saw three intake runners. Could it be that Ford is testing the 1.0L EcoBoost three-cylinder engine in the Fusion and the MKZ?


Ford is already selling the 1.0L powered Fusion (or Mondeo) sedan in Europe. The Mondeo 1.0L EcoBoost is rated at 125 PS. Ford has shown that small displacement and turbocharging can bring a good level of performance. Can this tiny engine be enough for power demands on the North American market? It could be if Ford can further decrease the weight of their midsize sedans. And we know that Ford is working on advanced materials as it displayed with the Lightweight Concept last year.


Check out this TFLcar 0-60 mph performance test of the 1.5L EcoBoost powered Ford Fusion

That's a lot of car to be hauled around daily by only 3 cylinders. I can't imagine engine longevity would be great with these.

Given how many stage 1-ish tuned Subaru's are running this many hp per liter, it can be pretty good, apparently.

1.0L ALL the things!

I support this. The baby EcoBoost is a peach. It just needs a bit more power for the Fusion (and really the Focus too).
