2011 Ford Fiesta to receive an EcoBoost engine

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

People were dismayed at reports saying that when the 2011 Ford Fiesta launches, it won't have an EcoBoost engine, which is one of Ford Motor Co.'s most promoted technologies. Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president of global product development, says though that an EcoBoost engine is coming soon.

However, Kuzak hasn't given a date of when exactly it will appear. What we know for sure is that the Fiesta will go on sale next summer and will be powered by a naturally aspirated, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine producing 119 hp and 109 pounds-feet of torque.

Those who would be looking for a turbocharged, direct-injection engine -- hallmarks of the EcoBoost name - will have to wait for it to arrive "later" Kuzak says.

Meanwhile, Ford confirmed that it will launch a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine beginning in the European Ford C-Max in 2010. It has yet to be confirmed whether the EcoBoost engine for the U.S. Fiesta will be 1.6 liters or smaller.

In Europe, the Fiesta is available with naturally aspirated gasoline engines with displacements of 1.6, 1.4 and 1.25 liters.

Ford aims that by 2012, it will have produced 1.3 million EcoBoost engines globally, including 750,000 in the US. Ford also wants that by 2013, EcoBoost will be available in 90 percent of Ford's global vehicle lineup.
