Torque power in the Ford Fiesta

The Game Changing 2014 Ford Fiesta

The key driver for legitimate power, torque is king. With Ford’s new 1.0-liter EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine option, they’ve solved the one issue that plagues the Fiesta: the standard 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that has to work to get moving.

Torque is the forgotten step-child, with horsepower being the number that people pay more attention to. However, its torque that gives you that rush of blood and ear to ear grin as you are thrown back into your seat. With the addition of a turbocharger you get an extra output of power, all without sacrificing your car’s efficiency. Which is why Ford’s lineup of turbocharged engines are such impressive feats of engineering.

According to, “The Fiesta’s optional turbocharged, 1.0-liter “EcoBoost” 3-cylinder engine is an award-winning power plant that makes more horsepower-per-liter than a Lamborghini Aventador.” While horsepower is still an important figure, what’s more impressive is the torque that gets the car going.

Torque power in the Ford FiestaLike we stated before even with the turbocharger, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine is still very fuel efficient. While the standard Fiesta gets a combined EPA estimated rating of 31 mpg, with the 1.0-liter EcoBoost the Fiesta achieves a rating of 36 mpg. This is impressive in itself, but even more so with the amount of power that the engine boasts.

With the 2014 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost you are able to have it all, a car that is fun-to-drive, fuel effiecient, stylish, and a great value. If you want to test it out yourself come on over to see us at Pegues Hurst Ford and drive one today!
