Clean diesel Focus and Fiesta for USA
Ford is to be congratulated and applauded for bring the European style Fiesta and Focus models to the North American market. They look fantastic compared with the staid GM and Chrysler equivalents, and both have very high reputations in Europe. However, one thing is missing: the clean and super economical diesel engines that Europeans have access to with low emissions and exceptional economy (over 60 MPG in some variants). Be brave, Ford, a second time round and please give us the economic, fast, great to drive diesels engines we now crave and deserve. Set a new trend and become the leader!

clifton Swanson I rented a diesel Focus in England last year and it was a phenomenal car. If it came to the US, I'd get one immediately. If not, I'll wait until it does.

dhart I agree, drove a diesel Focus in England this summer which was tremendous fun to drive, very comfortable for my group of 4, and got great mileage. Ford, please bring this to the US!

Cal Put me down for one. In addition, I'd like Ford to explore putting that same diesel engine into an Escape. They'd sell them faster than they could make them.

Anthony R My perfect vehicle would be an 4WD turbo diesel Fiesta coupe, even taking a hit in power in order to stuff an emission-controled diesel into that platform. It would still be a blast! Pretty please? Take my money!

Robert M Well folks, Chevy has thrown down the gauntlet with the diesel Cruze for the model year 2014. Is Ford next with a diesel Focus and Fiesta? We'll see!

Carlos W I just spent the last week driving a Diesel Focus with a Six Speed Manual around Eastern Europe. I loved it, I never thought a diesel would have so much power. I Cruised at up to 110mph on the Autobahn , shot through mountain roads, and even though I was having a lot of fun pushing it hard, I averaged 42mpg. This beats the BEST hybrids considering how I drove it. Please bring this to the states!

William R Diesel would open the world of alternative fuel to Ford USA. First thing chem engineers learn to do is make diesel from cooking oil....and other bio sources. Eco boost is great idea but only half way there. New people mover type family auto sure could use 600 plus miles on a tank of fuel.

Andrew Yes, please bring a turbo diesel to the US. I just bought a brand new VW Golf TDI; the only thing that stopped me getting a Focus was the lack of a turbo diesel option. Every time I drive past a Ford dealer I have a pang of regret that the option wasn't available to me - I'm willing to trade the Golf at any time!

Normand G We have the fuel,LSF, we need the diesel engine in cars and light trucks, Ecoboost fanfare is great but diesel is a better ecoboost both are turbo direct injected engine, in the real world ecoboost gas engine 2.0 liter geta fair 35mpg while the diesel gets 45 to 50 mpg. Come on Ford, yes you can.

fzaman I just spend 2 weeks in Italy driving the Focus Diesel wagon and it was awesome! I really wish the US sold these here.

amber What is holding them back? I am sure they'd see a spike in quarterly profit. I like the fiesta and focus anyway. But, I'd go out to a dealership and trade in my current car for something that got 4x better gas mileage.

Matt B I rented a Fiesta and was very impressed (USA). I won't consider buying one until we get the diesel model that Europe gets. C'mon Ford, don't make me buy a VW Jetta or Golf TDI! I'll be ready to buy in about 1 year!

Clayton P I want a diesel SO bad, I'm even willing to pay two thousand more for it! I know that there is tons of government regulation on diesel to try and make it better for the environment, but it is totally worth the investment! Ford give us a diesel option on EVERY model!

Paul A The ECOnetic engines would give Ford a huge advantage in the American marketplace. I have been waiting to buy the right car for myself and my family and the ECOnetic Focus would be it. Especially if it was AWD.

Dave Sanders I'd like to believe that the US auto industry wasn't in collusion with big oil in keeping these cars from us, but I too have rented (Ford Mondeo diesel) in Europe and was SO impressed. Why can't we have them, huh Ford? Don't say the US market isn't ready for them because that simply isn't true. Just ask BMW and VW.

Marshall I have owned two diesel Volkswagens, and liked the torque and mileage. Time for Ford to complete their transition to modern fuel-efficient vehicles, and bring ALL of their European product to the USA.
