Ford Wins Big International Engine Award!

The International Engine of the Year competition brought awards for Ford and Chevy engines.

GM’s Voltec powertrain scored Best Green Engine, while the 999cc Ford EcoBoost three-cylinder earned the overall Engine of the Year, among others.

GM’s Voltec power train combines a 1.4-liter range-extender gas engine, two AC electric motors and a 288-cell lithium-ion battery pack. In the past, the Best Green engine has gone to Toyota.

At this time, the EcoBoost engine appears in Euro-spec Ford Focuses right now. It has two different power levels, 99 horsepower and 123 horsepower, but it can make up to 177 HPs. It was given praise for having no turbo lag. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost was given the best new engine, best sub-1-liter and best overall engine.
