The car industry is adding turbos to smaller engines to produce the same output as a bigger engine while at the same time being more fuel efficient. In 2010 Ford started using the ecoBoost technology on the all new Ford Taurus to produce horsepower ratings of a V8 but keep the fuel economy of a V6. In the upcoming future you can see similar technology being used in the new BMW M5 and the face lifted C-Class. Even the directors of Formula One have decided that all F1 cars must be outfitted with four cylinder turbo engines by 2013.
What’s your take? Do turbos deserve a more prominent role within the auto industry?
