How to pronounce "Ecotec"

30 posts in this topic

How do you pronounce "Ecotec"? Is it E-Co-Tech (like, ecological technology) or Echo-tech (like, I dunno what the heck that would mean). I've always said it the first way, but I've heard people pronounce it the second way. Which (if either) is correct?

Not sure if it's correct, but I've always said "E-Co-Tech"

i agree

if it was echo- tech it should be spelled echotec

Yea, too bad GM can't even get the people in its commercials to pronounce it "eco-tech" since that makes it sound techy and environmentally good...no, GM marketing at its best :rolleyes:

Funny this thread should pop up...

I've always said "E'-koh-tek" sa well. I sold Chevrolet cars for

4 years out of two dealerships and it was always pronounced

that way by all the other associates. But at NYIAS the trophy

reps at the Chevrolet and Pontiac booths both pronounced it

as Echo-tech. I just chlked it up to $h!ty N.E. word butchering

and I made a mental note to pronounce it the new correct

way, but now I'm more confused than ever. :blink:

It SHOULD be EEKO TEK since it was made for ECONOMY and used a lot of advanced TECHnology to provide good power with good fuel economy.

it stands for economically responsible and technologically advanced...

so thus

ECO... TEC

Ecotec

But how many people ecology or economy as EEkology, and EEKonomy. I'd think most people would say ek-ology, ek-onomy, and thus ek-o-tek.

In the states...ecology is ALWAYS with a long e. Economy goes both ways...like "economics" is short e, but fuel economy is long e.

Not really, I don;t have an accent, if anything it's more Philadelphia because I live closer to there.(south jersey)

I've always known it as the Eco-Tech engine, at least that's how its spelt on the Wife's Cobalt, therefore, how my mind thinks to pronounce it. Although I'm going guess that some of y'all think I'm a backwards, pickup driving, tobacco chewing hick with a gunrack in his truck. Or some of you might accidentally agree with me.

Doesn't matter...the pronunciation of the amalgam would shift with the pronunciation of the amalgam's parts.

IN any case I think we can all agree that it beats the $h!

out of any V-tech ever made! The Ecotech has earned

high praises from everyone including V8-centric Car Craft

& Hot Rod. It's a bitchin little motor. Anyone who knows

how pushrod V8 obsessed I am knows that I'm not a

Four banger kind of guy but I love the ecotech!
