It appears that Ford is planning to introduce a 3-cylinder 1-liter car to the U.S. next year. It could be the Fiesta, but it could be the Focus, or even something else. Here is the full article...

2012 Ford Focus 1.0-liter EcoBoost

Probably Fiesta as it is pretty similar power to the 1.6 duratech they are currently using.

I don't see why they wouldn't put it in the Fiesta since it's the smaller car, but if it puts out about 130hp it could power a Focus, the original 2.3L 4cycl in my 03 only put out 135hp if I remember correctly.

If they offered in both models... and it achieved 45 in the Fiesta and 42 in the Focus = Winner

There are many sub compacts and compacts that exceed the 40 MPG that Ford had the market on for the last year and a half ago. This would put Ford back in the MPG leader category.
