It’s a simple fact: Even with advancements in technology, the majority of vehicles worldwide – millions of vehicles –
will be gasoline powered. Ford’s new EcoBoost™ gas-turbo direct-injection (DI)INJECTION

can help provide up to
20 percent better fuel economy without sacrificing power that drivers want.
