Ford to launch 2014 Fiesta with 1.0L EcoBoost engine in North America

ABR Staff Writer Published 20 November 2012

US based automaker Ford is planning to launch its 2014 ford Fiesta with 1.0L EcoBoost three-cylinder engine in North American market.

The new three-cylinder engine, which will produce 123hp and peak torque of 148 lb-ft, is expected to deliver enhanced fuel economy.

The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine will offer new technologies, including an offset crankshaft, variable oil pump, split cooling system, external-balancing, small, responsive turbocharger and a timing belt immersed in engine oil.

Combining turbocharging with gasoline direct injection and variable valve timing, the EcoBoost engine will replace the larger engine with a smaller one with no loss of performance and at least a 20% gain in fuel economy.

The new 1.0-litre's advanced design will deliver about the same output as a 1.6-liter four-cylinder, but with about 25% fewer moving parts, delivering higher fuel economy and lower emissions.

In Europe, Ford is introducing the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine in the B-MAX and C-MAX as well as offered in the all-new Mondeo.
