2013 International Engine of the Year

For the second consecutive year, Ford's 999cc EcoBoost three-cylinder turbo engine--which is found under the hoods of the Fiesta, the Focus, the B-Max, the C-Max and the Grand C-Max--has been voted the best automotive powerplant in the industry. After winning the same award last year, Ford's little motor has been named the 2013 International Engine of the Year, as announced at the Engine Expo in Stuttgart, Germany. This award, together with the category winners, is handed out annually by a global panel of automotive journalists.

"This is a truly remarkable engine and the fact that it secured first place in this category with such ease shows that our judges appreciate all the hard work that Ford's powertrain engineers have put into this project," said Dean Slavnich, co-chairman of the International Engine of the Year Awards and editor of Engine Technology International magazine. "Ford's first-ever three-cylinder design is still the engine to beat across the board. It's economical in real-world conditions, while the compact turbo helps ensure that the entire package can power with ease larger vehicles. Bravo, Ford!"

Here are the results of the voting, as well as the category winners:
