Production has officially begun on two new Ford EcoBoost engines at the Cleveland Engine Plant in Ohio. These engines include the all-new twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost and 2.3-liter EcoBoost.
Previously, these engines had been produced in Valencia, Spain; however, now the Cleveland Engine Plant will take over the North American production. The move was part of a $200 million investment in Cleveland and added 450 new jobs to support the production.
“With more than 4 million Eco Boost-powered vehicles on the road today, Cleveland Engine has been at the forefront of our plan to provide our customers with fuel-efficient, affordable engines,” said Bruce Hettle, Ford vice president of North America Manufacturing, in a statement. “The hardworking team at Cleveland Engine is proud to build two of the most technologically advanced engines on the market today.”
The twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine is available in the new Ford Edge. And, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine is available in the Ford Mustang, Explorer, and Lincoln MKC.
Here at Shults Ford of Harmarville, we are proud to see Ford bringing more production to the United States.
