Ford has managed to win the "International Engine of the Year" award for the second time in a row with its 1.0-liter EcoBoost.
87 automotive journalists from 35 countries gave the EcoBoost engine 401 points (highest score ever), making it once again their top choice. The engine can be had in the Euro-spec Fiesta, B-MAX, Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX. Pretty soon it will also power the Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Tourneo Courier, EcoSport and Mondeo. The U.S.-spec Fiesta is also set to receive the engine sometime this year.
