Ford to exceed EcoBoost target by 100,000 units
In fact, Ford is reportedly on track to sell 1.6 million of these forced-induction vehicles in 2013 – a full 100,000 units more than it had previously estimated.
The smaller, more efficient EcoBoost powerplants will make the Ford lineup more efficient and a program to cut down the amount of platforms the automaker uses globally is helping to trim costs. Ford product development chief Raj Nair claims that the automaker is on track to clip its platforms from 22 in 2011 to 10 by 2017. The move should save Ford hundreds of millions of dollars as platform costs drop as scale increases.
