2014 Ford Fiesta rated by EPA at 41 mpg on the highway

Article by Christian A., on June 12, 2013

Ford announced that the 2014 Fiesta is now EPA-certified at 41 mpg highway and that its small car achieved an impressive 30 mpg in the city and 34 mpg combined. These numbers make the 2014 Ford Fiesta the only subcompact car to surpass 40 mpg. According to Ford, two technologies helped the new Fiesta achieve these impressive fuel economy numbers – its advanced aerodynamics but also the dry, dual-clutch PowerShift automatic transmission.

The Fiesta features the SFE package that adds rear spoiler, side air deflectors, underbody shields, lower grille blockers, low-rolling-resistance tires and cruise control. Thanks to all the elements, the vehicle needs less fuel to push the car through the air at speed. Regarding the PowerShift transmission, this consists of two manual transmission (in the same case) that work in parallel.

Each has its own independent clutch unit controlled by computers, and fast-acting electromechanical actuators that shift the gears. “The 2014 model is shaping up to be a game changer for Fiesta,” said Liz Elser, Ford Fiesta marketing manager.

“With the addition of Fiesta ST and the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost, we have fantastic performance and fuel efficiency. But with today’s news, buyers will have a fuel-efficient Fiesta no matter which they choose.”
