Supporters of a controversial water diversion and storage project along the Poudre River in northern Colorado staged a rally yesterday in Fort Lupton, saying the current drought gripping the state is reason to fast track the stalled Northern Integrated Supply Project, or NISP.
Ford Motor Co. intends to prove that good things come in small packages — really small packages. The company has taken engine downsizing to a new level with its new three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which has been introduced in Europe and is set to hit the U.S. market next year.
The EcoBoost offers more power than many conventional four-cylinder engines, with fuel economy numbers a hybrid could envy. Early fans are calling it a modern "little engine that could," and Ford is betting that American customers are ready to embrace a three-cylinder engine.
