Ford’s Production of New EcoBoost Vehicles Passes 5 Million Units
EcoBoost technology has revolutionized the Ford Motor Company, its products, and the automotive industry so completely, it’s hard to imagine that the Blue Oval only started cranking out EcoBoost-equipped vehicles back in 2009. Six years later, and the technology has really taken off. Recently, at an assembly plant in Wayne, Michigan, a Ford Focus with a 1.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine rolled off the line, and the brand passed 5 million EcoBoost-equipped vehicles in production.
The little 1.0-liter engine in the new Focus also showcases how far EcoBoost technology has come since 2009, when it was first deployed on the 3.5-liter V6 engine in the Ford Taurus SHO. EcoBoost technology has quickly and steadily taken over the entire brand and will continue to spread its good influence to more models.
Ford production of EcoBoost vehicles has been especially rapid in the last three years. In 2012, there were only 500,000 EcoBoost vehicles on the roads—and now there are five million. In fact, 200,000 EcoBoost engines are made each month currently. To learn what all the hubbub is about, come see us at Shults Ford of Harmarville.
