Our 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine may only be small but it sure needs a big trophy cabinet – if only to house the eight International Engine of the Year Awards won in the last four years.
This year the engine world equivalent of the “Oscars” has recognised the engine, which powers ten models in our European line-up, with a fourth consecutive “Best Engine Under 1.0-litre” award.
Previously overall winner for an unprecedented three times in a row, the EcoBoost powerhouse also was named “Best New Engine” back in 2012.
A panel of 87 automotive journalists from 35 countries picks the winners, based on drivability, performance, economy, refinement and technology.
So what next for the fuel-efficient superstar?
