minimal post due to malf'ing mouse...

Next-generation Ford Fiesta ST likely to get EcoBoost 3cyl turbo
AutoExpress.co.UK

Sean Carson - 28 Sep, 2016


Ford has dropped more hints of what’s in store for its next Fiesta ST hot hatch – revealed in our exclusive main image – and it’s likely that the all-new performance supermini will use a tuned version of the firm’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine in place of the current car’s 1.6 turbo.

Ford’s head of small cars in Europe, Darren Palmer, told Auto Express: “We’re seeing more and more of what we can do with the 1.0-litre engine in development and the signs are promising. It’s a great engine – it sounds brilliant and there’s loads of torque when the turbo comes on boost, so we’re looking into things for the next ST.”

Currently, the highest output from the three-cylinder turbo in production form is 138bhp, but back in 2012 Ford specially tuned the EcoBoost unit to 202bhp in a one-off version of its Formula Ford racer.

If this power level could be achieved reliably in the forthcoming ST, it would give a 12 per cent increase over the current hottest Fiesta. Palmer told us: “There’s still a huge demand for the ST – we’ve seen that with the current ST200. But we want to offer more, so expect more performance and efficiency.”

The logical way to achieve this would be to use the 1.0 EcoBoost motor, and with Ford announcing it will halve production at its engine plant in Bridgend, south Wales, which makes four-cylinder engines exclusively, the manufacturer is set to increase the use of its three-cylinder unit in future models. The Fiesta ST is likely to be one of these....

Re: NextGen Ford EcoBoost(s)

I'm wondering when we will see an all new Ecoboost 4cyl. The current ones still share a lot with the Mazda MZR that debuted in 2001 don't they?

Wasn't the latest 2.0 different than the old one and all new?

i could be wrong, but from my understanding the only thing that changed was they added a twin scroll turbo.

I'm wondering (practically willing to bet) that/if there'll be a companion, smaller v8 (near 4.0) out of this program...
...would think a shorter stroke & Turboing

Maybe a version of this new 4.8L will make it into the New Navigator and Expedition.

Re: NextGen Ford EcoBoost(s)

What if the 4.8 is an all new engine specifically for Ford and they build a larger version like maybe a 5.0 exclusively for Lincoln? Or a smaller version with turbo?
