While Ford has stopped short of confirming it, a recent article on Automotive News suggests that a Fiesta subcompact fitted with the company’s newest 1.0L Ecoboost 3-Cylinder engine is all but a done deal for North America.

Ford confirmed that the engine would make it to America in some capacity, and the motor is only capable of fitting in the Ka, Fiesta and Figo. Of those three, only the Fiesta is sold here, with the Ka meant for Europe and the Figo sold only in developing markets. No word on when the engine will come to market, or how much power it will make, but the engine is said be to producing around 120-horsepower, roughly the same as the Fiesta’s 1.0L 3-cylinder motor.

    this would be a great engine in the Ka — saw them in France while I was there — I would MUCH prefer it over the Fiesta, and Mulally sounded like Ford would bring it over, but the marketing guys probably put the Kibosh on it! Too bad, sitll, looks like the Fiesta would definately be a step pin the right direction!
