Ford Uses Borg Warner Turbochargers in 3.5 Liter EcoBoost

Ford Motor Company uses two Borg Warner turbochargers to boost the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine in the 2012 Ford F-150 pickup. The automaker boasts best-in-class torque, towing capability, and payload with the forced-inducted six-banger. Sales of F-150s equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost have been strong, accounting for 42 percent of sales.

"The steady increase in Ford EcoBoost engine sales demonstrates that BorgWarner's turbocharging technologies meet the market's demand for improved fuel economy and outstanding performance, from small cars to light-duty vehicles," said Frederic Lissalde, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems Passenger Car Products, in a press release. "We are pleased to further expand our partnership with Ford, allowing customers worldwide to benefit from more power at the pedal, more miles to the gallon and lower emissions."

Ford subjected the F-150 EcoBoost engine to an endurance test that replicated 1.6 million miles of harsh conditions. The turbochargers proved reliable during the most extreme test heat and stresses. The EcoBoost engine churns out 365 horsepower at 5500 rpm and cranks out 420 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm. Ninety percent of the torque is available from 1700 to 5500 rpm. Borg Warner claims the 3.5-liter EcoBoost delivers more torque sooner and longer than most naturally-aspirated V-8s.

The engine is also used in the all-wheel-drive Taurus SHO, Flex, Lincoln MKT and MKS. Borg Warner turbochargers are also used in Ford's 1.0-liter, 1.6-liter, and 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines in North America, Europe, and China in passenger cars. The 2.0-liter is used in the Explorer and Edge.
