EcoBoost Engines

For the first the new Ford Escape will two different EcoBoost® engines. award-winning Ford engine which produces outstanding performance and expected fuel better than any competitor, is in a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and for the first in the U.S. a 1.6-liter four-cylinder.

Each new engine uses the EcoBoost technologies of direct injection and turbocharging and adds independent variable camshaft (Ti-VCT). With these the 2.0-liter EcoBoost is projected to more torque than the V6 engine in Toyota’s RAV4, and the is projected to produce segment-leading economy among compact and up to 5 mpg better than the outgoing

EcoBoost has been a popular among customers since the V6 was introduced in 2009 in the Ford SHO and Lincoln MKS.

EcoBoost are fundamental to the Ford strategy of technologically advanced, high-output, powertrains that deliver fuel economy and uncompromised for millions of drivers around the By 2013, more than 90 of Ford’s North American will be available with technology. Ford holds than 125 patents on its EcoBoost technology.

Giving customers two engine choices perfectly the array of smart, high-tech available in the new Ford Escape, Roger Maynard, Powertrain Both the 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter engines will deliver driving performance while fuel economy.

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder is projected to deliver 250 of torque and 237 horsepower. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder is projected to deliver 177 of torque and 173 horsepower.

Each new engine is mated to a specially six-speed SelectShift Automatic™ which is standard and allows to manually control gear from a switch on the left-hand of the shifter.

The gearbox features a new converter for improved driving silky smooth shifts and fuel economy. Engineers installed revised gear for a balanced driving feel in all The new ratios complement the revised converter.

The 2.0-liter EcoBoost, all EcoBoost engines, will peak torque across a band, said Maynard. means drivers will get response when they put the power — without fuel economy.

1.6-liter comes to North America

available for the first time in America is Ford’s 1.6-liter engine. Like its 2.0-liter mate, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost is to deliver better torque current Toyota and Honda and expected better fuel than both.

The 1.6-liter will be the fuel economy for the new Ford Escape and will outstanding fuel economy a highly responsive engine, Maynard.

Efforts to improve noise on the 2.0-liter EcoBoost carried over to the 1.6-liter which adds an electronically bypass valve.

This helps mitigate turbocharger and tip-out noises, resulting in a sound out of the engine when the tips off the throttle. The valve out the sound by balancing the air pressure in the

Lighter, more efficient

The base engine for the all-new Escape is an updated version of the four-cylinder, which shares components with the 2.0-liter engine to save weight, quality and increase fuel

Highlighting the improvements is the new lower-tension front-end accessory drive With the belt at a lower friction in the entire system is Less friction reduces consumption.

That improvement, with engine control and other advancements, contributes up to a 2 mpg in fuel economy as well as low-end torque for enhanced feel.

Also improving economy is the Active Grille System, which helps air resistance and is on all models with the EcoBoost engine and the 2.5-liter

The Active Grille Shutter will open grille when extra engine air is required, such as low-speed driving. When cruising on the at steady speeds, the grille automatically close to improve and fuel efficiency.

Active Grille Shutters are used on the Ford Focus . Taurus and Ford Edge in America and will be added to more vehicles.

Recycled plastic bottles, cotton find fresh

A wide suite of environmentally or recycled materials — plastic bottles and cotton, to a few — are found within the of the all-new Ford Escape.

The Ford Escape has a strong responsibility story to tell, Sue Cischke, group vice Sustainability, Environment and Safety With two all-new EcoBoost each delivering fewer CO2 compared with similar engines, and the extensive use of recycled or materials, the all-new Ford is more environmentally friendly.

The Ford Escape contains more sustainable materials its predecessor . Materials that are renewable and reduce impact on the include:

Carpeting made either post-consumer or post-industrial An example of a post-consumer material is that’s been recycled, from beverage bottles. The for polyester carpeting is about post-consumer and two-thirds post-industrial

25 20-ounce plastic bottles are in the carpeting

Soy foam in the seats and restraints

Powertrain undershields from 100 percent recycled

More than 10 pounds of cotton recycled from sweaters, T-shirts and other otherwise sent to a landfill is in sound-absorption material

Climate gaskets made from tires

Soy-based foam to head restraints

The expansion of soy-based foam continues in the Escape. In addition to bio-foam in the seat cushions and backs, new for is head restraint foam is 5 percent soy-based.

The carpet is made from either (plastic that’s been for example, from beverage or post-industrial (scraps from that make clothing, for sources. In the new Ford Escape, the for the polyester carpeting is about post-consumer and two-thirds post-industrial.

engineers calculate that 25 20-ounce plastic bottles be used in the production of the carpet of new Escape in North America. At sales levels, that is than 4 million recycled bottles each year.

The new Ford Escape adds four times as much high-strength steel and ultra-high-strength as the outgoing vehicle. Nearly of the steel in the all-new unibody is composed of advanced high-strength and steel, helping better occupants in the event of a crash.

The new also features an enhanced Safety System™ with new belt technologies and seven

The Personal Safety System is a of components that work to tailor the activation of the front during frontal collisions. The control module (RCM) information collected by the front sensors, front outboard belt buckle switch, track position and passenger-seat sensor and judges how fast the is decelerating, and if the driver and/or are buckled.

With this the RCM activates the safety belt and determines how the dual-stage front will deploy.

Advanced Ford-developed software the new Ford Escape’s Intelligent 4WD pre-emptively reassesses conditions 20 times faster than it to blink an eye, readjusting the split to give the driver the blend of handling and traction at all

Using advanced software and the system gathers data 25 external signals, including speed, accelerator pedal and steering wheel angle, to outstanding driving performance in wet and dry conditions as well as excellent traction.

Greater confidence entering and driving through is enabled by the technologies Torque Control and Curve Control, are available together for the first in an SUV in the all-new Ford Escape.

The always pre-emptively splits the produced by the powertrain between the and rear axles. Splitting the offers several benefits to the First, it transfers the power, means that when a corners hard, the vehicle better follow the intended path.

For example, if the vehicle is — the tendency to go straight cornering — the system automatically split more to the rear wheels to help that effect and provide neutral steering.

Second, and new to all-new SUV, are feedback and software that calculate, on the driver’s steering angle, the driver wants to go versus the vehicle is heading, and make the split.

A sort of mini-supercomputer all the inputs from an array of and data — such as acceleration, driver demand and angle — and processes information to get the vehicle to turn in the the driver wants it to go. The Ford builds on the pre-emptive actions by and subtracting torque as needed an electromagnetic clutch.

If, for example, the of the vehicle is on ice and the rear is on pavement, the system can send all the torque the can produce to the rear, putting where the driver needs it.

All of these adjustments, corrections and are made every 16 milliseconds, is about 20 times faster the blink of an eye.

Working in with Ford’s new Intelligent 4WD is an enhanced version of Torque Control, deployed for the first with an all-wheel-drive vehicle.

on the new global Ford Focus but retuned and recalibrated for the new Escape, Vectoring Control adds level of confidence for the driver. In a when wheel slip is — losing grip on the wheel, for example — Vectoring Control transfers across the axle to the outside

Torque Vectoring Control is when the driver is on the accelerator, and sensors and software to calculate the yaw motion, or its tendency to move or right.

More typically on high-performance cars, Torque Control uses the vehicle’s to imitate the effect of a limited-slip constantly balancing the distribution of torque between the front during cornering, resulting in grip and steering and a reduced of understeer.

The system operates the vehicle’s stability control and monitors the situation 100 times per As the vehicle accelerates through a the system detects when the front wheel is starting to and applies an imperceptible amount of to the wheel. This prevents spin and has the effect of transferring torque to the outside wheel, has more grip, thus traction and steering control.
