Ford Motor Co. says it will offer its EcoBoost engine in 4-cyclinder vehicles starting next year in an effort to provide greater fuel economy to consumers without compromising on horsepower.

At a showcase of the company's 2010 model lineup Tuesday, Ford executives said the 2-liter, 4-cyclinder EcoBoost engine will help the vehicle perform like one with a 6-cyclinder engine.

Ford currently offers a 6-cyclinder EcoBoost engine in some cars, which allows for 8-cyclinder performance.

Company CEO Alan Mulally says Ford's "transformation" plan, which includes bringing the new engine to market, is fully financed. He says the company has sufficient liquidity to bring other new vehicles to market in a challenging auto sales climate.
