why dont they put the new 2.0T focus engine in the ecoboost falcon. BTW I think it is a sham that we have not got the 3.5TT ecoboost from the torus yet in our cars.
It’s the same engine, slightly different tune
It’s the same as the Intel Pentium 2.0GHz and Pentium 3.5GHz cpu. Exactly the same CPU’s. But they just increase the clock speed. That’s where the term “OVERCLOCKING” comes from. The overclocked ones are obviously more powerful. But run hotter, less stable and definitely less reliable.
Why get the 3.5TT ecoboost.. when we have a more powerful engine in the the Turbo inline 6… more KWs and More Torque then the V6 Ecoboost.
why get the Turbo 6 when you can have a V8, more KWs and more torque then the L6T?
I guess the word fuel efficiency does not register with you…
I reckon the 1 litre ecoboost would be great in the focus
Can we see 200,000km or even 120,000km?
Small, turbocharged engines have been getting more than 120,000km for years now, this isn’t the 70s-80s anymore. Even many highly stressed, small capacity motorcycle engines are easily getting over 120,000km now without much effort. I know for a fact that for example many Suzuki 650 v-twins are getting over 160,000km+ without having to touch the engine at all. Just because an engine is small, it doesn’t always mean it isn’t going to last.
However having said that these newer engines can’t handle neglect as much as the older ones ie oil changes etc due to the tighter tolerances and risk of sludge blocking oil galleries etc due to neglected oil changes.
When buying an Ecoboost Falcon, can I tick a box to option a timing chain? Not a fan of timing belt. Thanks!
The Ecoboost Falcon uses less fuel than the Mazda3. 8.1 vs 8.2 litre per 100km. It means that the Mazda3 is thirsty. I used to have one. Now am looking for a new small car that uses around 7 litre per 100km. It’s not only the fuel consumption. But the range as well due to tiny fuel tanks in the small cars.
Why does this never occur to them: 1 Ecoboost engine + 1/2 EcoBoost engine = 1 Twin Turbo Ecoboost Inline-6!
They should also add some of that cylinder cut-off technology when cruising, so at a steady speed only 3 cylinders fire, and that stop start technology for the traffic lights.
I wonder what is involved in retuning the Mondeo ecoboost to match the outputs of the Falcon engine.
Reprogramming the ECU. Most likely with a piggy back hand held unit. Voids warranty in Australia but will easily knock it up to Falcon, even Focus ST Spec
Great Ford, you release the new focus without Ecoboost and then add it to the model once it is no longer a new model… What a recipie for… “good car that just did not get the sales it deserved”.
