If Ford produces the Fiesta ST in 2013, it will shares its engine with the 2013 Ford Escape. The new Escape will also show the 2.0-liter engine. The 2013 Ford Escape will be available with two EcoBoost® engines: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 1.6-liter four-cylinder. This will be a first for the Escape, and inline with Fords plans to put most of its vehicles on their eco boost platform. The engines are expect to perform like this:

  • The 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder is projected to deliver 250 lb.-ft. of torque and 237 horsepower.
  • The 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder is projected to deliver 177 lb.-ft. of torque and 173 horsepower.
The Fiesta ST, and The Focus ST EcoBoost engines will be a little more soup up, of course.

Each new EcoBoost engine is mated to a specially calibrated six-speed SelectShift Automatic™ transmission, which is standard and allows drivers to manually control gear selection from a switch on the left-hand side of the shifter.

1.6-liter EcoBoost comes to North America
Also available for the first time in North America is Ford’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. Like its 2.0-liter stable mate, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost is projected to deliver better torque than current Toyota and Honda competitors and expected better fuel economy than both.
“The 1.6-liter EcoBoost will be the fuel economy leader for the new Escape and will deliver outstanding fuel economy with a highly responsive engine,” said Maynard.
Efforts to improve unwanted noise on the 2.0-liter EcoBoost were carried over to the 1.6-liter EcoBoost, which adds an electronically controlled bypass valve.
This valve helps mitigate turbocharger tip-in and tip-out noises, resulting in a smoother sound out of the engine when the customer tips off the throttle. The valve smoothes out the sound by balancing the air pressure in the intake.
