Ford 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has made it into Popular Mechanic's Top 10 Tech Breakthroughs of 2012.

With only three-cylinders in it, this small engine from Ford can match power figures of other engines nearly twice its displacement thanks to EcoBoost, Ford's answer to a more efficient internal combustion engine.

Meanwhile, GM also made it into the list with its GM crash-avoidance system where a camera mounted inside the car watches the world just like what normal drivers do, the system then process every information gathered and warns the driver of any possible collision.
