Each engine promises the performance of a larger engine, with the fuel economy and emissions output of a smaller one.
Says Barb Samardzich, v-p powertrain technology, "EcoBoost allows us to offer segment-leading fuel economy in 13 different segments, without compromising any other attribute that is important to consumers: performance, features, dynamics - anything."
The 1.6 litre four is in the orange C-Max people mover.
The 2.0 litre four is in the white Edge Crossover, (built in Oakville) and in the also-white European Mondeo (if our Contour, based on an older Mondeo, had been this good, we'd still be getting it).
The 3.5 litre V6 with intake cam variable timing goes in the (also Oakville-built) Flex, the Titanium version of which is pictured here.
Promises basically kept, although it's fair to say the V6 does a better imitation of a V8 than the inline-four does of a V6. There's only so much you can do to hide the buzziness of a high-revving four-banger.
We'll be giving you more details on each of these models (except the Mondeo; we also will only get the 7-seat C-Max, not the 5-seater shown here) as they launch over the next ten months or so - the Flex, Taurus SHO, Lincoln MKT and MKS are already on sale.
