Ford unveils cleanest petrol engine

Date: 25 November 2011   |   Author: Jack Carfrae

Ford has unveiled an all-new 1.0-litre three-cylinder Ecoboost petrol engine designed to rival low-capacity diesels with its cleanliness and frugality.

Developed at the firm's UK bases in Dagenham and Dunton, Essex, it is the company's smallest petrol engine, and when fitted to the Focus in 125hp guise, will return 56.5mpg and emit 114g/km - or 109g/km in 100hp tune.

The new engine will be built at Ford's Cologne plant in Germany and the firm's latest engine factory in Craiova, Romania. It will be available with the Focus from early next year and eventually be rolled out across the C-max, Grand C-max and forthcoming B-max ranges.
