The EcoBoost 3.0L is a twin-turbocharged V6 engine from Ford Motor used to power midsize and full-size cars and utility vehicles, or more commonly known as SUVs. Featuring a dual overhead cam (DOHC) design, in a V configuration, the Ford 3.0L EcoBoost architecture has been part of the Ford EcoBoost family of turbocharged engines since 2016.
The engine is heavily based on the EcoBoost 2.7L Nano, with cylinder bore increased from 83 mm to 85.3 mm. The engine’s piston stroke was also lengthened by 3.0 mm (for a total of 86 mm). Ford also replaced the Nano’s compacted-graphite iron block design for a cast aluminum construction.
This engine first saw life in the 2017 Lincoln Continental. While it was once exclusive to the Lincoln brand, the EcoBoost 3.0L engine is slowly appearing in recent Ford vehicles, such as the 2020 Ford Explorer. A plug-in hybrid variant of this engine is also available in the 2020 Lincoln Aviator. The EcoBoost 3.0L engine powers the following vehicles:
