The Birth (and Rise) of a Legend

almost 15,000 EcoBoost engines were manufactured. The following year,
the first full year of EcoBoost production for Ford, 62,704 vehicles were
built with an EcoBoost engine inside. This year saw the production of
the five-millionth EcoBoost-equipped vehicle, and Ford is now producing
200,000+ EcoBoost engine per month worldwide.
