That plant, which was at risk of closing a few years ago, currently builds the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and a 3.7-liter V-8. Ford is investing $200 million to prepare the plant for 2.0-liter EcoBoost production, which will begin late next year.

Ford is very enthusiastic about the EcoBoost engine, which allows smaller engines to do the work of larger engines. That can mean significant fuel economy improvements. Ford wants to double global sales of EcoBoost equipped vehicles this year.
