Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost Scoops 2012 International Engine of the Year Award
The big winner of the 2012 International Engine of the Year awards is Ford and it's 1.0-liter EcoBoost powerplant, which beat last year's winner, the Fiat 0.9-liter TwinAir, while also achieving the highest score ever with 401 points.
