Ford is quite pleased with its EcoBoost engines, which, through forced induction and direct injection, deliver the same performance as bigger, naturally aspirated units, but with the same fuel economy as a smaller one.
In order to see how customers are looking at the new technology, the Blue Oval decided to hold a survey, in which people shared their opinion of the 3.5-liter V6 unit, currently found in the Ford Flex and Taurus SHO as well as the Lincoln MKS and MKT.
The results aren’t that surprising, as almost every new customer said he was pleased with the performance of the EcoBoost engine. According to the survey, the new technology has also drawn in a younger crowd, which favored import models over American ones, up until now.
The future for the EcoBoost lineup is looking even more interesting, as a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit will arrive with the next generation Explorer SUV and Edge crossover. Also, in case you forgot, the Ford Start concept, unveiled a few weeks ago in Beijing, previews a small 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, capable of a power output similar to a 1.6-liter engine.
