The 2.0 Liter EcoBoost is bringing improving the local economy and bringing jobs to Northeast Ohio.

The Ford Motor Co. has expanded its Cleveland Engine Plant with the production of two all-new EcoBoost engines in Northeast Ohio. This means more jobs and more money flowing into the area thanks to Ford.

Ford announced the production of the all-new twin-scroll 2.0 liter and 2.3 liter EcoBoost engines during a press conference Friday during the 2015 Cleveland Auto Show.

“With more than 4 million Eco Boost-powered vehicles on the road today, Cleveland Engine has been at the forefront of our plan to provide our customers with fuel-efficient, affordable engines,” said Bruce Hettle, Ford vice president of North America Manufacturing. “The hardworking team at Cleveland Engine is proud to build two of the most technologically advanced engines on the market today.”

In 2013, Ford announced a $200 million investment in Cleveland which brought an additional 450 jobs to area. These engines were previously built in Spain. These engines can be found in the Ford Edge, Ford Explorer and Ford Mustang models. The Cleveland Engine Plant  also builds the 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine and 3.7 liter V6 application. More than 1 million engines have been produced right here in Cleveland, OH.

“With the new 2.0 and 2.3-liter EcoBoost engines featured in the all-new Edge and Explorer, Ford is well-positioned to benefit from the rapidly growing utility vehicle segment,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president of U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “Utility sales are growing at three times the rate of the global vehicle industry.”
