Ford EcoBlue; 2.0L Technical Wonder

EcoBlue is the most advanced diesel engine that Ford has created. This 2.0L four-cylinder engine was designed to improve performance, lower emissions and have better fuel efficiency. It is compact, quiet and smooth thanks to a strong, lightweight block which reduces noise and vibration.

Ford developed a process called “mirror-image porting”, in which the air swirls clockwise in two cylinders and counterclockwise in the other two. This creates a balanced airflow which improves fuel consumption and increases torque while lowering emissions.

Below are the specs for this new technical wonder.
