Ford will triple the production capacity of its new EcoBoost engines in 2012, adding the fuel-efficient powertrains to 11 models - up from seven in 2011.

Among the models already confirmed for EcoBoost power this year are Australia's Falcon sedan, along with the new Focus ST hot-hatch.

The all-new Mondeo will also feature EcoBoost engines, and is expected in Australia early next year.

The new Escape SUV will also feature the new engines, although an Australian debut has yet to be confirmed. (For now, the European Duratec-powered Kuga SUV will represent Ford in the local compact SUV segment.)

The US-market F-150 is also offered with a 265kW 3.5 litre V6 EcoBoost engine, while the Taurus large sedan will add a 2.0 litre EcoBoost option to the existing 3.5 litre V6 offered with the Taurus SHO performer.

Ford's Taurus-based Interceptor will also hit the market for law enforcement buyers this year, marking the debut of the first turbocharged vehicle for regular police forces in the US.

Falcon

In Australia, the Falcon will pick up Ford's 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost in the second quarter of this year, available as an option in the XT, G6 and G6E variants.

It is the first time this engine has appeared anywhere in the Ford global line-up in a rear-wheel-drive car. Catch TMR's report (and brief "first drive" review) here.
