Ford Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost Saves Cash At The Petrol Pump

The most dramatic and distinctive Fiesta to date delivers the best miles per gallon among its rivals, led by Ford’s patented new 1.0-liter EcoBoost® engine. This landmark engine, already selected for both the Popular Mechanics 2012 Breakthrough Award and Engine Technology International’s International Engine of the Year Award in Europe, is able to deliver more than 40 mpg.

With that, Fiesta is projected to be the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid subcompact in ASEAN, and stands as a shining example of Ford’s commitment to provide consumers with the most fuel-efficient cars, SUVs and trucks.

While the diminutive size of the 1.0-liter EcoBoost saves cash at the petrol pump, it doesn’t hold anything back on the road. At 123 horsepower for each liter of engine displacement (the engine’s size), the 1.0-liter EcoBoost delivers more power for its size than a Lamborghini Aventador (at 108 horsepower per liter).

EcoBoost is fundamental to Ford’s strategy to provide technologically advanced, high-output, smaller-displacement powertrains that deliver uncompromised performance and fuel economy. EcoBoost engines deliver fuel economy gains of up to 20 percent and reduction of CO2 emissions of up to 15 percent, compared with larger, less-efficient engines. Ford’s leadership with EcoBoost has resulted in more than 125 patents on the technology. Currently, more than 500,000 vehicles have this engine and by 2013 more than 1.3 million will have EcoBoost.

A triple threat of fuel-saving features – variable-displacement oil pump, polished tappets and coated pistons – appears together for the first time in the 1.0-liter Fiesta, giving drivers maximum miles per gallon without sacrificing driving fun.
