What’s hiding under your hood?

You’ve probably heard the term “EcoBoost”–especially if you’ve been shopping for a new Ford in Buffalo .

We answer a few top questions that Western New York drivers want to know about Ford EcoBoost engine technology and availability.

* “What does EcoBoost mean?” *

“EcoBoost” is simply a term coined by Ford to help their innovative technology stand out. In short, it describes the brand’s range of direct-injection (Eco) and turbocharged (Boost) powertrain options that work together seamlessly to optimize fuel economy and performance without losing any real engine power.

Gasoline direct-injection is the current preferred method for sending the fuel to the engine because it’s faster and less complicated than conventional methods.

And turbocharging?

Well that’s just plain fun–and a thrilling boost of engine power when you need it.
