Fiesta 1.0 ecoboost automatic

By John H.

Ford needs to offer a Fiesta 1.0 ecoboost engine with powershift automatic. Yes, it's all about fuel economy but manual shifting is too "old school".  The impact of powershift on fuel economy on this car should be very minimal one would think? The bigger gas user is idling and this car should be offered in the U.S. a start/stop feature.  If not for stoplights I could fairly easily keep a 45mpg average on my 2012 Fiesta SE with powershift.

cool idea and interest. If ford gets automatic transmission for 1.0 litre it will be wonderful, looking forward to it.

The 1.6 sfe requires an automatic. The 1.0 sfe requires a stick. Weird. On hills in San Francisco, stickshifts are nooooooo fun.
