Fords Future is Looking Very Small.

With more and more stringent restrictions being put on auto manufactures, they are all in a rush to produce smaller, more efficient engines for their product line-up. As a result, Ford has made an even smaller version of their new EcoBoost engine with displacement similar to the dinky things found overseas. This development is both good news and bad news for those of us on this side of the pond. The positive effects of having a major player in the car building game making tiny engines are relatively obvious. Smaller engines mean better fuel economy, which means they will have less of a negative impact on our rapidly growing population in regards to our health and safety. However, this is the dawn of a new age, meaning that big ol' V8's will be pushed out of the limelight for most of the people on the planet, as they will be replaced by the aforementioned tiny displacement engines with turbos or superchargers. What does this mean for the auto industry? The same as usual; technological advancements that make everything more powerful and fuel efficient, who can argue with that? Personally, I am happy with what's coming, and I look forward to the future. What do you guys think? Are these engines a wasted venture, or are they what is best for the times?
