Growing customer demand for EcoBoost-powered vehicles in Ford's major markets worldwide is driving engine production, with output now averaging more than 100,000 engines per month, up from 65,000 in 2012.

"Ford EcoBoost delivers great performance with lower fuel bills, a recipe which is proving incredibly popular with consumers around the world," said Joe Bakaj, Vice President, Powertrain Engineering, Ford.

"EcoBoost engines are attracting new customers to the Ford brand every day, and our plants are working hard to keep up with demand."

A Ford Escape (SUV) powered by the two millionth production EcoBoost - a 2.0-litre unit - rolled off the line at Ford's Louisville, Kentucky, assembly line.

EcoBoost technology combines smaller overall size with turbocharging, direct injection and variable valve timing to deliver outstanding performance and fuel economy.

Ford EcoBoost engines deliver up to 15% better fuel economy than larger displacement petrol engines.

Ford's global EcoBoost engine family now includes the 1.0-litre three-cylinder; the 1.5-litre, 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines; and the powerful and efficient 3.5-litre V6.

EcoBoost will be offered on nearly 80% of the company's global nameplates by the end of 2013.
