Ford (and Lincoln) are all in with turbocharged power. It is their strategy to improve fuel economy, while also maintaining great power and fun. The MPGs vary from model to model and depend on various configurations. The most efficient is the Ford Fiesta SFE with the 1.0L three-cylinder EcoBoost and a rating of 32 MPG city and 45 MPG on the highway. The big and capable F-150 and its 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost is the hungriest at 15 MPG city and 21 MPG highway in 4×4 trim.
So, how many different EcoBoost engines do they currently offer?

It’s difficult to believe that at the end of calendar year 2014, Ford will have no fewer than 12 EcoBoost engine options across the Ford and Lincoln lineups. We don’t have all the specifications yet. We do not know all the details about the 2.3L in the 2015 Mustang or the EcoBoost options for the 2015 F-150.
