Ford will introduce its 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine to the U.S. in 2013

Ford will introduce its 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine to the United States next year with the new 2014 Ford Fiesta.

The supermini will be the first vehicle available with the small engine, with Ford hoping it will be certified by the EPA as the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid car available in the United States.

The smallest engine available in its class, Ford’s patented 1.0-liter EcoBoost will produce 123 horsepower and peak torque of 148 lb.-ft (200 Nm). Ford says the Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost will be a cheaper alternative to diesel-powered cars and hybrids.

“Many customers would like the fuel efficiency of a modern diesel or a hybrid, but can’t stretch their budgets to cover the cost premium. That’s where the EcoBoost Fiesta fits in. It will offer a highly fuel-efficient alternative at a lower cost,” said Joe Bakaj, Ford vice president of Powertrain Engineering. He also reassures customers there’s nothing to worry about an engine that small.

“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,” Bakaj added.

Ford has not yet set the price for the Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost, but promises it will be a very affordable option, as with the other EcoBoost engines available across its lineup. Adding an EcoBoost engine costs about $995 in most Ford vehicles.
