Ford to bump up EcoBoost production

Bryce G. Hoffman / The Detroit News

Ford Motor Co. is raising its production projections for its EcoBoost engines and now expects to produce about 1.5 million annually by 2013.

That is about 200,000 more than originally expected. Ford's plan calls for the fuel-saving motors to be available on 80 percent of its nameplates globally and 90 percent of its North American nameplates.

"We are focused on sustainable technology solutions that can be used, not for hundreds or thousands of cars, but for millions of cars, because that's how Ford will truly make a difference," said Barb Samardzich, Ford's vice president of powertrain engineering.


She is expected to provide more details of EcoBoost production plans at the Society of Automotive Engineers World Congress in Detroit on Tuesday.
