Turbocharged Ford Fiesta: Marketing Hype or EcoBoost Reality?


Ford recently launched a new website dedicated to the 2011 Fiesta (due out in early 2010) and the option sheet lists a turbocharger kit!

Don't get too excited, however, as the site is aimed at gauging consumer interest and isn’t necessarily a list of the options Ford will offer. Most likely the automaker just wants to see if auto enthusiasts see the Fiesta as a car they'd be interested in.

Still, there is a strong possibility that a turbocharged engine for the car may actually be in Ford's future plans. Ford hinted at a turbo-four for the Fiesta at the Shanghai Auto Show and it has been widely speculated that the automaker is working on an EcoBoost four that will deliver V6 power with four-cylinder fuel-economy.

This would of course be necessary to match GM's upcoming turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder, which will launch in the Chevy Cruze.
