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

Article by Christian A., on October 31, 2013

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.

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.

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.

In addition to its fresh EcoBoost engine, Ford Fiesta brags a best-in-segment suite of innovations and components that provides drivers the ideal mix of a connected world and an unrestrained driving experience.

A fresh MyFord Touch system with 6.5-inch touch screen that highlights improved voice control is presently accessible, giving drivers more choices than any other time in recent memory for navigation, communication and entertainment functions. Ford Fiesta still highlights SYNC AppLink capabilities originated on the first Fiesta, which enables drivers to access and control Ford-approved smartphone applications with voice commands and car controls while on the go, assisting drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Turn-by-turn navigation is still an integral part of SYNC Services.

Ford’s MyKey is another component on Fiesta, which empowers parents specifically to motivate more secure driving and reduce their kids’ exposure to danger at the wheel. The system enables clients to configure top speed and sound volume limits. It additionally mutes sound until the seat belts are fastened and guarantees driver aids, safety systems and more vigorous cautions can't be deactivated when utilized.

This vehicle was created for the digital generation. With Bluetooth connectivity and MP3 capabilities, technically savvy individuals who utilize social media to be constantly connected with their world around them won't be slowed down when they board the vehicle.
