Ford’s fa­mous 1 ℓ Eco­boost en­gine has walked away with yet an­other in­ter­na­tional award. For six years in a row, this en­gine has been named the best en­gine un­der 1 ℓ in the world. (It’s the 12th time since its launch in 2012 that this Ford en­gine has won such an award.) The three-cylin­der is used in one out of five Fords in Europe, and is one of the com­pany’s big­gest suc­cess sto­ries in re­cent years. The judges – a panel of 58 mo­tor­ing jour­nal­ists from 31 coun­tries – were im­pressed with the good com­bi­na­tion of power, fuel con­sump­tion, and tech­nol­ogy of this 1 ℓ lit­tle guy. Larger ver­sions of the Eco­Boost – up to 3,5 ℓ – also do good ser­vice in other Fords across the globe. That in­cludes bakkies, panel vans, and the GT su­per­car. More­over, the de­vel­op­ment of the Eco­Boost con­tin­ues: Ford has announced that a new ver­sion of the en­gine will be launched in early 2018. This en­gine will have tech­nol­ogy that can ac­ti­vate and de­ac­ti­vate the cylin­ders in­di­vid­u­ally as power is needed – 20 times faster than you can blink your eyes! >
