How Do Ford EcoBoost® Engines Work?

EcoBoost® engines are able to provide such impressive power and efficiency metrics because they are turbocharged and use direct injection. Turbocharged engines force in more air than a normal engine would receive, improving power output without increasing the size of the engine. Direct injection cuts out the intact tract portion of the fuel injection process, which improves efficiency.
