Focus 1.6 ecoboost engine (180) vs newer 180 1.5 ecoboost


Recommended Posts

I currently drive a 1.6 ecoboost zetec s 180ps with a claimed 0-60 time of 7.6 or 0-62 in 7.9. 

I was looking at the new 1.5 and it's claimed to be 0-60 in 8.3 or 8.6 seconds depending on 0-60/62 measurement.

How can it be slower with the same power ? 

Not sure if a 0.7 second difference is that noticeable anyway ..

I'd say that the reason is Ecoboost 1.6 has overboost (additional 30 Nm for up to 30 seconds), however, 1.5 EB (both 150&180ps versions) doesn't have this feature.
