2012 LA: 2014 Ford Fiesta gets 1.0 liter EcoBoost, expected to hit 40 mpg

Making its stateside debut today is the brand-new 2014 Ford Fiesta, which now gets a 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine that pumps out 123-hp and 148 lb-ft of torque.

“Customers want cars that are expressive and fun while offering class-leading fuel economy,” says Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas. “Fiesta delivers all the excitement drivers are looking for in a car we believe will raise the bar even higher for small cars in North America. “Our goal with this Fiesta was to take a car that was already a leader in fuel efficiency, performance, connectivity and personality, and make it even better.”

When the 2014 Ford Fiesta goes on sale in the United States next year, it is expected to deliver an estimated 40 mpg.
