Ford has just confirmed that the 2014 Ford Fiesta will be offered with Ford’s new three-cylinder 1.0L EcoBoost engine in the U.S. The 2014 Fiesta will be the first Ford model in the U.S. to get the new engine, which Ford expects will make the Fiesta the most fuel efficient non-hybrid car available in the United States.
The turbocharged 1.0L engine generates 123 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque.
“Customers are going to be pleasantly surprised at what the smallest member of the EcoBoost engine family can do,” said Joe Bakaj, Ford vice president of Powertrain Engineering. “Most customers are not going to be thinking about the number of cylinders under the hood when they drive the new 1.0-liter EcoBoost Fiesta. They’ll notice an extremely smooth and quiet idle, terrific acceleration accompanied by a sporty sound at high revs, and – most importantly – outstanding fuel economy.”
