Besides announcing the sale of the 500,000th Ford EcoBoost equipped model, FoMoCo confirmed today that it will be bringing the smallest engine ever, to the United States. The company will start selling its 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine in the United States with the new 2014 Ford Fiesta that will go on sale next year.

While the 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine is the smallest engine available in its class, it delivers a strong 123-hp 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.”
Pricing has not been announced yet, but Ford said adding an EcoBoost costs about $995 on most of its vehicles.
