Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost

The 1.0 EcoBoost engine that equips the Ford Focus is a petrol engine with direct injection and turbo with three cylinders. It has a capacity of 999 DC and an output of 125 hp (there is also another version with 100 hp). This combination of low capacity and high power is one of the solutions that manufacturers are taking in their models to achieve a more balanced vehicle. And it's working.

Ford offers this version as an alternative to diesel engines, first by the consumer and secondly by its performance more dynamic and lively.

The first thing I noticed driving the Focus 1.0 EcoBoost is its smoothness and silence, that have nothing to do with other blocks of three cylinders. This is a lightweight, weighing 97 kg, with aluminum engine , and is equipped with a series of technological innovations enabling low consumption and quiet running.

To complete this efficient system Ford Focus 1.0 EcoBoost is equipped with stop-start, to save fuel in urban trips. This Focus as surprisingly good performance, and the engine is a "wonder" that manages to combine technical efficiency with good comfort. Is also equipped with a 6 speed manual gearbox, which is highly oriented for fuel economy.
