However that 2.0L engine is the same block and most of the fittings as the ecoboost engine, it was only branded ecoboost when they threw a turbo on it so there is not much difference between the DI duratec and the 2.0 ecoboost.
Oh right https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_L_e ... VE,_LF-VD)
A turbocharged EcoBoost version (of Ford Duratec 20) was introduced in 2010.

As someone who daily drives a 2.0 Ecoboost, I figured I should chime in!

The 2.0 GTDI (ecoboost) and 2.0 GDI (duratec) are mostly the same engine. The bottom end is mostly the same, and while some things like the injectors and fuel pump are different, they're the same family of parts (the ecoboost ones are just larger capacity). They're both derivatives of the Mazda L engine, as are the previous 2.0 and 2.3 liter MPFI duratecs used in Ford vehicles since 2001 (but older ones don't have GDI).

I think the Skyactiv is mostly unrelated and clean sheet designed.

The 1.6 Ecoboost is not of the same family, but is instead of the Sigma family: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Sigma_engine

Yep, as stated above, ford have a bad habit of naming engines and trim levels at random. We have "Zetec" as a iron block engine, a sigma type engine and a vehicle trim level, duratec as an engine series that included one of the older zetec engines, etc, etc.

Ecoboost wise there is kind of 3 families of inline engines - the mazda L engine based 2.0 4 pot, the ford sigma based 1.6 and 1.5 4 pot and the ground up designed 3 cylinder engines.
However when it comes to the peripherals and the actuators they are all quite similar, ford like all manufacturers seem to re-use parts across several engines/cars (wouldn't make sense not too) so the injectors, cam de-phasers, high pressure pump etc etc all function in a similar way so a similar ECU can control them for the sake of production volumes.
In that aspect the same electronic hardware could control all of them and likely a lot of the newer ford engines like the V6 ecoboost or the direct injection modular.
