Powertrain improvements net a 1 to 3-mpg increase for 2007 2.0-liter Ford F
Ford Motor Company?s razor-sharp focus on the consumer has prompted the company to make some dramatic improvements to the 2007 Ford Focus. Powertrain engineers concentrated on the 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder, improving fuel mileage across the board. ?The Focus engine was originally calibrated for emissions,? says Nicholas Schubeck, supervisor, Powertrain Calibration for Ford Motor Company. ?We noticed during testing that we could get a lot better fuel mileage by making some adjustments to the calibration while still meeting emissions.?
