Ford has revealed that a smattering of styling changes and other improvements will boost the 2014 Ford Fiesta's base price to $14,000. Opting for the Fiesta hatchback ups that base price to $14,600.

That's $800 more than last year's model. A $795 destination charge isn't included in the $14,000 figure.

Loaded up with every available option, a Fiesta Titanium hatchback with goodies like a six-speed dual-clutch automatic, a power moonroof, navigation and some other minor add-ons will run $23,560.

Ford hasn't detailed pricing for the Fiesta's late-introduction optional 1.0-liter three-cylinder. The prices listed above reflect the mostly carried-over standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine.

Ford pulled the sheet on its refreshed 2014 FIesta sub-compact at the Los Angeles auto show last fall and the new model should be arriving in dealers soon. The Fiesta features new looks and updated technology for the new model year.

The automaker's MyFord Touch system, which was co-developed with Microsoft, has landed the automaker in hot water with reviewers and owners, but Ford says that the software it will install in the Fiesta has better voice recognition, simpler Bluetooth pairing and upgraded navigation controls.
