Ford, the well-known and reliable name in automobile industry, has recently presented its new creation, the 2013 Edge EcoBoost. It is a CUV (crossover utility vehicle) and its looks are much the same as its predecessor, the 2011 Edge Limite except that an EcoBoost badge is displayed on the outside of the rear hatch.

The vehicle is equipped with an ecoboost engine and derives its name from it. It is a small engine but has the power of a much bigger one by giving extra power and torque. It has four cylinders and is of 2.0 liter capacity, turbocharged with direct injection allowing better and smoother combustion and decreased carbon dioxide emissions. It will improve fuel economy between 10 to 20%. With EcoBoost, the fuel consumption will reach 30-32 mpg on the highway and 20-23mpg in the city. Ford, in collaboration with Honeywell, a diversified technology manufacturer, brought about this low-inertia turbo engine

Ford Edge has two more ecoboost engine variants. These comprise of four-cylinder of 1.6liter and V6 of 3.5 liter capacities respectively. These add to the boast of an extraordinary technology range which improves on the fuel saving and push power, and eliminates co2 emission. The latest, though, has the rear wheel drive in focus. The main aim of this creation is an effort by Ford to strike a balance between economy and power!

By 2013, Ford plans to manufacture about 1.5 million engines of Edge EcoBoost series globally which will be approximately 200.000 more than expected earlier. The engine with all its variants will be available for 90% of the line model in North America and 80% of its cars globally. The addition of the three new Ford EchoBoost engines globally will increase the vehicles with this engine to eleven, thus adding to the environmental friendly vehicles in the world.
