It is very important to me that I, Doug DeMuro, get to the bottom of every issue, and also sometimes to the top, especially if that issue is a scary-looking spider on my ceiling. This is why I’ve decided to devote today’s column to uncovering the giant marketing scheme that is Ford EcoBoost.
Here's something for all you patriots who thought the EcoBoost name was for sissies, pinkos, libtards, hippies and other undesirable elements who don't love freedom: Ford is moving to trademark the name "EcoBeast" for future cars, trucks and/or engines. ECOBEAST!
This is what an aftermarket exhaust can do for a Ford Fiesta with its 1.0 liter turbo ecoboost inline three.
As a small, weird guy, I've always had a special affinity for small and weird engines. In the US, almost any 3-cylinder is shoved into these categories. Ford's new 1L Ecoboost engine may be the first 3 cylinder in the US that's not weird. It's is, however, small, and very impressive — I know because I finally drove…
And with the 1.0-liter EcoBoost beginning production at the Changan Ford engine plant in Chongqing, China, expect that number to rise quickly.
Ford announced today that next year's Ford Fiesta will get their 1.0 liter, three-cylinder turbo Ecoboost engine. How ever did they manage to fit this massive motor in such a small car?
Today we saw Ford take the engine block for their new three-cylinder Ecoboost engine through airport security, just because they could. That gave us an idea.

With the world's demand for fuel efficient engines only growing, Ford said today it would soon build a 1-liter, three-cylinder version of its EcoBoost engine for small cars around the world, including the United States.
In response to reader comments — and FoMoCo whining — about observed low-end power output (or rather, the lack of measured output below 2,000 rpm) during PickupTrucks.com's dyno test of Ford's all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, they've rerun the test.
Ford's made formal the worst kept secret in Dearborn, spilling the beans on their upcoming four cylinder EcoBoost engine. Officials are saying the engine will make at least 230 HP and 240 lb-ft of torque.
Ford has unwrapped its EcoBoost technology and is promising 355 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque from its new twin-turbocharged V6.
Today we made our way over to Ford's Beech Daly Technical Center, a nondescript building along the Dearborn side roads which houses what is, for lack of a better term, Ford's engine skunk works. Capable of doing everything from rapid-prototyped vinyl intakes to turning out fully functioning engines, the tech center is…
