Lightbulb Ford Wins Engine of Year: 1.0 ltr Ecoboost

For the second year in a row, Ford has taken top honours in International Engine of the Year voting. As was the case last year, it is Ford's 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine that earns the automaker the accolade, achieving the highest score ever accumulated score in the 15 years that the award has been handed out.

Voters were impressed by the "Baby EcoBoost" engine's power output – 123 horsepower between 1,400 and 4,500 rpm, 148 pound-feet of torque from 1,400 to 4,000 rpm – and its compact size; Ford has demonstrated that the package is small enough to fit in the overhead bin of a passenger airplane.
Currently, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost is offered in the European Fiesta, B-MAX, Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, and Ford plans to put the engine in the Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Tourneo Courier, Mondeo and EcoSport in short order. In North America, the Fiesta will be the first vehicle to offer the 1.0L EcoBoost later this year.
Ford to double production of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost at its Cologne (Germany) Engine Plant from mid-August to meet demand.
The 1.0-litre EcoBoost – which combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging and variable valve timing to lower fuel consumption without sacrificing power – received the highest score in the history of the awards. The engine also won the "Best Engine Under 1.0-litre" category at the annual awards presented by Engine Technology International magazine.

No Mileage figures posted.

I guess SkyActive has some competition? (not necessarily with this size engine, but the ecoboost in general).

the Ford 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder EcoBoost is the winner for the second straight year. The turbocharged EcoBoost scored 479 points to beat out the Volkswagen 1.4-liter TSI TwinCharger engine with 408 points. Rounding out the voting for Engine of the Year were BMW 2.0-liter twin-turbo I4 (247 points), Porsche 2.7-liter DI (245), Ferrari 6.3-liter V12 (233), BMW/PSA 1.6-liter turbo (197), McLaren 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 (180) and Audi 2.5-liter I5 (111).
Actually displacing 999cc, the EcoBoost won the Sub-1-liter class by 228 points over the Fiat 875cc 2-cylinder turbo. Finishing third was the Volkswagen 999cc 3-cylinder engine.
The 1.0-liter EcoBoost is rated at 125 horsepower but can get up to 56 mpg.

In the Performance Engine category, the Ferrari 6.3-liter V12 found in the Berlinetta was able to outdistance some notable turbo power to score 294 points. That beat last year’s Performance Engine winner, the Ferrari’s 4.5-liter V8 that powers the 458 Italia, by 109 points. Just two points back in third was the McLaren 3.8-liter V8 from the MP4-12C.
