Ford Focus ST To Deliver Factory Overboost Turbo Engine Technology

Ford is talking a bit about 2013 Focus ST with a twin turbocharged two-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. The car will be the first EcoBoost vehicle sold in the United States to feature Overboost. Overboost is activated on the car by pressing a button to give the driver something akin to a turbo boost.

Overboost doesn't increase horsepower, but broadens the torque curve of the engine to give drivers a boost when passing. Peak torque output doesn't change from the factory rated 270 pound-foot number, but drivers get more torque over an RPM band from 3000 to 4500 RPMs for up to 15 seconds. The Focus ST is rated for 252 hp and 270 pound-foot of torque.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
