Ford Focus New 2.0 Liter I4 Engine

Even though we are in an age of hybrid and electric cars, the internal combustion engines are far from dead yet and have plenty more potential to become efficient and clean.

And Ford proves it with its all-new 2.0-liter DOHC I-4 engine with twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), direct gasoline injection and E85 flex fuel capability that will deliver a projected 40 mpg highway.

This unit will power the new generation Ford Focus and give it 160 horsepower and torque at 146 lb.-ft. considerably more than the previous 2.0 liter.

The direct-injected 2.0-liter Ti-VCT I-4 also serves as another example of Ford delivering fuel economy leadership by using advanced technologies to produce surprising power from minimal displacement. The engine can deliver outstanding fuel economy and emissions along with the throttle response, performance and flexibility expected from a world-class engine.

“By combining direct injection and Ti-VCT, we’ve been able to make a quantum leap in fuel economy and performance,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president, Global Product Development. “We’re meeting the goals of our global powertrain strategy, and we now have another key engine in our lineup.”
