2014 FORD FIESTA: First seen in Chicago at last year's auto show, the 2014 Ford Fiesta returns for a second engagement during the 106th Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 8-17, 2014. The latest Fiesta redefines the small car with a stylish new appearance, special features and technology that proves sometimes "small is smart." Ford projects that Fiesta will be the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid subcompact in the USA. The '14 edition is the most dramatic and distinctive Fiesta to date, combined with increased fuel economy ratings up to 40 mpg and "European-like" driving dynamics. Available in Fiesta S, SE and Titanium and new ST series, the '14 Fiesta wears a new hood and front chrome grille, and a freshen, upscale interior. Two powerplants are offered, starting with the diminutive 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder that develops 123 horsepower and comes exclusively with a five-speed manual gearbox. Also offered is the 1.6L four-cylinder that produces 120hp and can be ordered with a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. In addition, there is the high-output version of the 1.6L that creates nearly 200hp (197 to be exact) installed in the North American Fiesta ST five-door hatchback. As Ford's newest contribution to the world of hot hatches, the ST comes coupled with a heavy-duty six-speed manual gearbox and enough racing DNA to back up the aggressive styling. In fact, the '14 Fiesta ST is one of Ford's exclusive global performance brand that is the result of the combined efforts of Team RS in Europe and SVT in the United States. Special packages are for custom exterior design graphics and sexy new paint color choices. Chicago Auto Show Fact: Word from the upcoming 2014 show is that the 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder is projected to offer more than 40 mpg without the expense of purchasing a hybrid powertrain.
