Want to be the First to Drive an EcoBoost?

It’s one thing to read about the new 2.0-liter EcoBoost™ engine, Active Park Assist, Cross Traffic Alert and all the other cool technology available on the 2012 Ford Explorer and Edge, but it’s another to experience them firsthand. Here’s your chance – The EcoBoost Drive it First program is coming to more than 20 U.S. cities, and we’re putting you in the driver’s seat!

Over the course of an hour, you’ll learn about the revolutionary EcoBoost 2.0-liter engine and be able to chat with an expert. You’ll also be able to learn about SYNC® with MyFordTouch, experiencing the technology and full-color LCD touchscreen and fingertip steering wheel controls. You’ll also be able to try the Active Park Assist, EPAS, BLIS and Cross Traffic Alert.

Each event is set up with a family activities area for families with small children. About the only thing you’ll need is a driver’s license and you need to be at least 18 years old. It’s recommended to pre-register, but you can also just show up.

Visit Drive it First for more information, locations and dates.

Jamie At Ford Hey Darrell, As Carl mentioned, our vehicle design and product development teams performed extensive testing on this new, fuel efficient engine. The availability of an EcoBoost in several model lineups further shows our Built Ford Tough confidence in its ability to last! @Carl – Great question! The 2.0-liter EcoBoost has 4 cylinders. Hope that helps. :) Jamie Ford Customer Service Division

Brad Krekelberg I wish I could have a 1.6L 180 hp EcoBoost in a Focus with a 6-speed MANUAL transmission... The 2.0L GDI is a dog with the DSG.

Carl Allen I would not be afraid to buy an ecoboost engined car, Ford makes a great product. Plus the gas milage is truely amazing. Ford is also on the right track in getting more horsepower out of smaller engines, and better gas milage. Due to CAFE standards in the next few years all cars and trucks will need to get better gas milage. A lot better. Ford you are on the right track, keep up the great work.
