Daimler and Ford could tie up for 1.0 Liter 3 cylinder EcoBoost engine

Ford's 1.0L Ecoboost engine has turned many heads across the globe and came into limelight when the engine won 2012 International Engine of the year award.  The 1.0L 3 cylinder Turbocharged Ecoboost engine will deliver a power output of 123PS and will be powering the Ford range of cars including Ford Focus, B-Max, Fiesta, EcoSport and the C-Max.

Damiler powertrain development engineers have taken a long hard look at the 1 liter turbo petrol Eco-boost engine as a benchmark while developing Daimler’s 3 cylinder turbo petrol engine. The new engine developed by Daimler is in association with the Renault-Nissan alliance.

The advantages of turbo engines over naturally aspirated engine are higher power output, lower emissions, a flatter torque curve and a better power to weight ratio.

Daimler could now join hands with Ford to share its world class technology in form of 1.0L Ecoboost engine. Earlier Daimler also joined hands with Renault-Nissan alliance for their globally acknowledged 1.5L K9K Diesel heart, which still powers the B Class in Europe.
