Ford says its new line of turbocharged EcoBoost direct-injection gasoline engines will deliver up to 20 percent better fuel economy in its cars and trucks than conventional engines, but it isn't expected to stop looking for efficiency gains there.
Industry sources tell PickupTrucks.com that Ford is already developing the next iteration of EcoBoost motors with suppliers under the code name Bobcat.
Bobcat engines will feature ethanol boost technology, developed by Ethanol Boosting Systems, LLC of Cambridge, Mass., that promises 5 to 10 percent greater fuel economy than EcoBoost engines.
