That's why they designed it so it could run off regular 87 octane as well (for penny pinchers). Those that care about maximum performance should choose premium.

It's actually a brilliant design. Do the math and see which saves more money for the performance. I'm sure if V6's got better performance while using less gas on 87 octane they would be using them more.

marcwill is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Ford 2.0L Ecoboost engine

This is so great. Ford has publicized promises to start production of a 2-liter, four-cylinder motor at its plant in Brook Park, Ohio. That size Ford engine was formerly only produced in Valencia, Spain, according to the Associated Press. The move will produce up to 750 careers in Ohio, according to an unnamed representative of the automaker. You can visit Ford Motors 2.0L Eco-boost Engine to get more information about the article.
