EPA rates the 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost at 45 mpg highway

Article by Christian A., on October 31, 2013

The EPA has determined that the 2014 Ford Fiesta powered by the 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost turbocharged engine will return 32 mpg in the city, 45 mpg on the highway, and 37 mpg combined. This means that it is the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid, non-diesel car on sale in the U.S. in existence.

The 2014 Ford Fiesta is the first car available in the U.S. to feature the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that has been on sale in Europe for some time. This engine is offered only with a five-speed manual transmission and has an output of 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, even as an overboost function can offer 145 lb-ft for 15-second bursts.

Last June, the tiny three-cylinder engine was named International Engine of the Year. The EcoBoost engine has a considerably better fuel economy than the other versions of the 2014 Ford Fiesta that are equipped with a 1.6-liter inline-four engine with a rating of 120 hp and 112 lb-ft. The 2014 Ford Fiesta, when fitted with the optional Super Fuel Economy package and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, is capable of returning up to 30/41 mpg (city/highway).

The vehicles that don’t have the SFE package can return 29/39 mpg, whether equipped with the automatic or a five-speed manual transmission. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, with a price tag of $995, is available just on the 2014 Ford Fiesta SE models.

Furthermore, this package comes with a trunklid spoiler for sedans, an EcoBoost badge, and a set of 15-inch steel wheels.

The standard 2014 Ford Fiesta SE sedan is priced from $16,245 (including destination costs) while an SE hatchback has a price tag of $16,845.
