EcoBoost®

Traditional petrol engine thinking is that size equals power. That’s why Ford’s EcoBoost engine technology has amazed the sceptics. While their smaller size delivers greater fuel economy, their power output is that of a larger engine.

EcoBoost Technology

EcoBoost®

A combination of direct fuel injection and turbocharging, normally found in luxury vehicle engines, is the key to EcoBoost’s small engine fuel efficiency and big engine power. Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) completes the picture.

Direct Fuel Injection. Every drop of fuel is burned by injecting a highly pressurized, precise amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder in the engine. An electronic control system varies the timing and intensity of each injection to match the engine’s operating conditions.
 
 
 
Turbocharging Technology

Turbocharging

Turbocharging uses the engine’s exhaust gases, which would otherwise be wasted, to push more highly compressed air into the engine. The more air in the combustion chamber, the more power you get out.

Together with variable cam timing, it generates high torque low in the rev range (rpm) and maintains peak power over a wide range. This gives immediate responsive power when you accelerate.

 
EcoBoost Technology

EcoBoost

Cool air intake valves and hot air exhaust valves simultaneously overlap so more air flows through the combustion chambers for a very cool, dense charge that helps build torque in the engine.

SYNC™

Why stop using your devices when you drive? SYNC™ is a fully integrated, voice activation system, created in partnership with Microsoft, which lets you use your favorite devices while your hands stay safely on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

  • Make and receive calls and a range of other phone features, depending on your phone model, totally hands-free.
  • Continue a call when getting into or out of your car. The call is automatically transferred between your handset and SYNC™ when you start the engine or turn it off. So there’s no need to hang-up and re-dial.
  • Ask SYNC™ to play specific tracks, artists, genres, albums and more, hands-free, when you plug your MP3 player into the USB outlet, if your music is categorized.
  • Stream music wirelessly from your Bluetooth® phone or music player.

The Software

- Specially-created Microsoft Auto software works with just about any current MP3 player or Bluetooth® mobile phone.

- Your mobile phone connects (pairs) via Bluetooth® technology. SYNC™ automatically connects to your paired phone when you turn the engine on - you don’t even need to take it out of your bag or pocket.


FIGO ASPIRE ACCESSORIES

Charge...

- You can pair more than one phone and make one your favorite so SYNC™ automatically connects to it if there’s more than one paired phone in the car.

- SYNC™ can automatically download your phone contacts each time you drive, so you can call people just by saying their name. The system doesn’t store your contacts so your private information is secure.

- Upgrades and new features and capabilities are easily downloaded via the SYNC™ Owners website.

EcoBoost

The Hardware

- A 4.2-inch screen in the center console lets you see your settings and current SYNC™ status and mode.

- Press-button controls on the steering wheel allow you to answer and end phone calls and talk to SYNC™, without your hands leaving the steering wheel.

- The SYNC™ media hub has both a USB and auxiliary outlet.

Inflatable Rear Safety Belts

Introducing the world’s first production inflatable second row outboard safety belts. They’re the latest evolution in safety and comfort from Ford. In the event of a frontal or side crash, the inflated belt is designed to deploy in less than the blink of an eye. Its unique design helps distribute crash force energy across more of the occupant’s torso than a traditional belt, which helps reduce the risk of injury while providing support for the head and neck. After deployment, the belt remains inflated for several seconds before dispersing its air through the pores in the airbag. Inflatable safety belts are compatible with child safety seats. Because inflatable belts are not as large as traditional front airbags, they can fill at a lower pressure and at a slower rate. Ford research showed that more than 90 percent of people who tested the inflatable safety belts found them to be similar or more comfortable than a conventional belt because the belts feel padded and softer.
