Ford Falcon EcoBoost Review

CAR GARAGE | Ford Falcon EcoBoost Review | As with other car manufacturers reducing the size of its engines, Ford says its smaller power-plant offers similar performance to a bigger engine but, crucially, with better fuel economy. In this case, that would be a bigger engine six-cylinder, though Ford Australia says it Remains committed to its Gee long-made inline 4.0-liter. With the Falcon continuing to hemorrhage sales and spiral out of the top 10 vehicle sales charts That was not so long ago a seemingly permanent home, the new Ford Falcon EcoBoost models is seen as a potential white knight - or a "game changer" as Ford puts it.

Time will tell whether Ford Australia has made the right call to abandon the original plan to build the Focus small car at Broad meadows and instead combine Taxpayer money - from a $ 42m Federal Government contribution - with Ford Motor Company investment on more fuel efficient versions of its homegrown Falcon and Territory SUV models. If fuel efficiency has been one of the key factors leading to the mass exodus of buyers from large cars, the four-cylinder EcoBoost Gives Ford dealers at least some bragging rights in terms of economy over rival cars.

The Ford Falcon XT EcoBoost, the entry-level models to prove That should now be even more popular with fleet buyers, has official liters consumption of 8.1 per 100 kilometers (CO2 emissions of 192g/km and). Small cars and big engines are an unnatural combination in Australia, but the EcoBoost Ford Falcon is a car Perceptions That can change if it's given a chance. Despite having half the capacity of the built-in 4.0-liter-Victoria, the made-in-Spain 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder is not far off the six-cylinder's power and torque outputs of 195kW and 391Nm. The turbo four-cylinder offers 179kW at 5500rpm up, and 353Nm of torque at 2000rpm. On the same drive, a six-cylinder petrol Falcon would have been expected to send consumption well into double figures, troubling the teens.

We clocked 6.74 seconds in the Ford Falcon EcoBoost and a 6.71 in an LPG six-cylinder Falcon, before heavy rain ruined a comparison with the regular six. Ford Australia's engineers have also fiddled with the Falcon's suspension for the EcoBoost, primarily catering for the change in weight distribution (to 56/44 per cent front / rear) resulting from the smaller engine That weighs 64kg less than the six-cylinder and sits slightly further back in the engine bay. The four-cylinder EcoBoost comply Could tomorrow, Ford says, making another argument against the bigger engines at least That does have one clear advantage: a towing capacity advantage of 700kg (2300 v 1600kg).
