Details Surface on new one-liter Ford EcoBoost Engine

1L EcoBoost is tiny and impressively powerful and efficient

We mentioned recently that Ford is set to offer a new and very small one-liter, three-cylinder engine in the 2014 Ford Fiesta. At the time, we didn't know a lot of details on the little engine, but Ford has now offered all we need to know. The tiny three-cylinder engine displaces 1.0-liter and will use EcoBoost Turbo technology.

Ford says that the little engine will deliver the best fuel economy of any non-hybrid car sold in America. Despite only having three-cylinders and such a small displacement, the engine will produce 123 hp and peak torque of 148 pound-feet. That puts its power output on par with traditional four-cylinder engines.

It's unclear exactly how much the tiny one-liter EcoBoost engine will cost. EcoBoost engines are typically $995 as an option on most platforms. "Customers are going to be pleasantly surprised at what the smallest member of the EcoBoost engine family can do," said Joe Bakaj, Ford vice president of Powertrain Engineering. "Most customers are not going to be thinking about the number of cylinders under the hood when they drive the new 1.0-liter EcoBoost Fiesta. They'll notice an extremely smooth and quiet idle, terrific acceleration accompanied by a sporty sound at high revs, and – most importantly – outstanding fuel economy."
