Each and every day, automotive companies are coming out with new technology, looking to improve upon what’s already out there to get a little bit better in some facet of performance. Whether that performance be based in power, efficiency, or some other metric is all up to the engineers to play with to try and come to some sort of breakthrough, using all sorts of different technology to come up with a solution to whatever situation or problem it is that they’re trying to overcome. In this one, it just so happens to be efficiency that they’re tackling and one of the latest EcoBoost applications might just help that cause.
With just three cylinders and one liter of displacement along with a turbocharger, this application is trying to be the little workhorse that could, throwing as much power into the mix as possible when considering the incredible lack of displacement. It might seem small but, on the other hand, it’s engines like these that you see being incredibly efficient and making the most of the little bit of displacement that they have, especially when a little bit of boost is thrown into the mix to make it even more appealing.
If you follow along with the animation down below, you’ll be able to get an inside scoop, literally, that explains to you exactly what the nuances are in this small but mighty application that’s aiming to take the world by storm by eliminating displacement and adding efficiency. After this one, you’ll have all that you’ll ever need to know about the little EcoBoost that could as it uses every last facet to the fullest extent of their ability in order to get the most desirable end product. After getting acquainted with the engine, be sure to tell us what you think of the mighty mouse.
