Ford is using a “smart” car to attain the 0-60mph sprint in 4 seconds and achieve 0.93g of grip, the company said today.
Ford has used a hybrid powertrain for the EcoBoost Turbo and the new F-150 Raptor Hybrid.
The EcoBoost Hybrid was unveiled last year and is the company’s first hybrid-electric vehicle.
The turbocharged V6 Ford F-450 EcoBoost is equipped with Ford’s new 2.5-liter V6 engine.
Ford said that the new EcoBoost comes with a hybrid drivetrain that “can generate up to 15 percent better fuel economy and up to 6 percent more torque than the standard EcoBoost, depending on the application.”
That makes it the first car to get a hybrid version of the EcoMax.
The company said the new engine “allows for an even more direct relationship between horsepower and torque.”
The EcoBoost engine has been tuned for low emissions, improved fuel economy, and less power consumption.
The new engine uses two different combustion chambers to generate both high-octane gasoline and liquid hydrogen.
The fuel in the combustion chamber is fed to the turbocharger, which produces more power and torque, and the liquid hydrogen is fed into the cylinder head.
The hybrid is rated at 160hp at 8,400 rpm and 200hp at 9,600 rpm.
The hybrid also has a hybrid clutch that makes the vehicle’s wheels steer and lock up when the car slows down.
