Torque power in the Ford Fiesta

Ford Gets Tiny: Fiesta Engine the Smallest Ford Engine Ever

The smallest car in Ford’s lineup, also now boasts having the smallest Ford engine ever made, but don’t let its size fool you. The 2014 Ford Fiesta packs 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, surprising for an engine that could fit into a carry on (with possibly room to spare).the Ford Fiesta with have the smallest Ford engine ever made

The SFE (Super Fuel Economy) option will be available on the Fiesta SE and Titanium trims, featuring the 1.0-liter, three-piston motor. A turbo over-boost that delivers up to 148 lb-ft in 15-second bursts. Just as the name suggests the engine’s purpose is to increase efficiency, and it’s not necessarily built for speed. Even with is EPA highway rating of 43 mpg (which is higher than any of Ford’s hybrid models), we think it’s fair to call the Fiesta “fun to drive”.

According to foxsports.com, “the engine has a deep, rich sound without any of the harsh buzz subcompact car owners are familiar with. And thanks to some clever engineering, it’s also much smoother than its odd number of cylinders suggests. Ford intentionally imbalanced the flywheel and crank pulley to offset the off-kilter firing pattern, eliminating the need for the separate counter-rotating balance shaft many small motors use, which keeps the overall package as small and light as possible”.

While a truck may be your first choice, the Fiesta SFE would help your wallet when you don’t need your truck, so come into Pegues-Hurst Ford and test drive one today.
