Five Technologies That Help Save Fuel

Smart Journey

SMALL ENGINE
Always meant cheap, loud and less power. Now drivers can enjoy the new generation. Turbo-charged Ford EcoBoost engines deliver big power and small fuel economy figures.

AUTO STARTSTOP
Waiting at traffic lights with the engine running wastes fuel. This technology automatically switches off the engine and restarts it before you move off.

ACTIVE GRILLE SHUTTER
The adjustable shutter manages airflow to cool the engine – improving aerodynamics and lowering fuel consumption.

ECO-MODE
On-the-move virtual coaching rewards smooth gear-changes, acceleration and braking by showing a flower. Bad behaviour makes it wilt.

SMART REGENERATIVE CHARGING
Braking can slow your vehicle and power your battery, in the same way that pedalling a bicycle can turn the wheels and power lights.
