Honeywell to Turbocharge First Ford EcoBoost Engine

2010 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost V-6 with Twin-Turbos from Honeywell Will Help Improve Fuel Economy and Cut CO2 Emissions

TORRANCE, Calif., July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON), the world's largest turbo manufacturer, is helping Ford find a "replacement for displacement." As the industry leader in developing advancements in turbo technology, Honeywell has been selected by Ford to develop turbochargers for its first introduction of EcoBoost technology on next year's 2010 Lincoln MKS. The new turbocharged 3.5L V-6 engine will perform like a large V-8, but will deliver the fuel economy of a V-6.

Engine downsizing is big news in the U.S. -- thanks to a new, environmentally-friendly engine technology from Ford that's harnessing the power of direct injection and using Honeywell's advanced gasoline turbo technology. Ford's EcoBoost engine range is creating a new dynamic in the equation between power, fuel economy and CO2 output. The result will be one of the world's most powerful, yet fuel-efficient, gasoline-powered luxury sedans.

"It's fitting that Ford asked Honeywell, the world's largest and most innovative turbo maker in the world, to help launch the first truly efficient downsized turbocharged gasoline engine in the US," said Adriane Brown, President and CEO, Honeywell Transportation Systems. "Honeywell is proud to partner with Ford on its first EcoBoost engine, and to give American drivers a fuel-efficient, lower emitting vehicle that doesn't compromise on performance."

To help bring this pioneering engine to market, Honeywell leveraged the latest advances in turbine design and materials to optimize the performance and ensure the reliability of its modern gasoline turbo technology. The twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 will deliver upwards of 340-plus lb-ft (461Nm) of torque across a wide engine range -- 2,000 to 5,000 rpm -- versus 270 to 310 lb-ft (366Nm to 420Nm) of torque for a conventional naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V-8 over the same speed range.

Honeywell Turbo Technologies produces more than 9 million turbochargers a year. With major manufacturing and engineering sites throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia, the business continues to expand its global footprint to meet the rising global demand for boosted vehicles.

Honeywell expects the global turbocharger segment to grow from 30% of the overall automotive market to more than 38% by 2013 as automakers look to boost engines to help increase fuel-efficiency and reduce harmful exhaust emissions without sacrificing performance.
