Ford Fiesta to get 1.0L EcoBoost in the U.S. image

The North American based automaker Ford has recently announced its plans to introduce the 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine on the Fiesta model next year in the U.S.

According to the car manufacturer, the award winning 1.0 liter EcoBoost will make its way under the hood of the 2014 Ford Fiesta in the United States, which will go on sale locally next year. Ford says that the 2014 Fiesta EcoBoost will be the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicle sold in the United States but no official figures on its fuel consumption have been announced yet.

“Customers are going to be pleasantly surprised at what the smallest member of the EcoBoost engine family can do. 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”, said the Ford vice president of Powertrain Engineering, Joe Bakaj.

The 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine is producing a total output of 123 HP (91.7 kW) and it has a peak torque of 200 Nm (148 lb-ft). The unit has 25 percent fewer moving parts than the 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine. The American version of the 2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost will be officially presented to the public during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show on the 28th of November.
