Maleforce, the Ecoboost sits at 2,500rpm at 70 the same as the 1.6 diesel. Relaxed cruiser it is as the engine drifts into the background.
Don't know where this thing comes from where people are saying the Ecoboost has to be revved to get performance from it or its stressed out, don't think Ford would put it on sell if they had doubt on it and it has just won the sub 1.0l engine and engine of the year award again. The formula Ford puts out over 200bhp with the same engine but with the 1.6 ecoboost's turbo.
I have mine since January and I can change gear from 1,500rpm too and ride the turbo boost. It'll never get what Ford say it will as it is driven in the real world and not in a lab, but I'm impressed with what it can do and the economy it returns compared to my old 1.25
Thanks Mick78, your info was really useful,
I know with the old zetec petrol it was 3500 at 70, however if the new 1 litre is 2500 at 70 mph thats probably enough for me to sway me to the petrol away from the diesel I own now, I am doing about 12000 miles a year mostly urban trips of 7 miles and the occasional longer journey. Having said that it is important to me for the car to be quiet at cruising speeds as well as economical on my daily run, I must admit I'm looking forward to my next new fiesta but I can't see the point of changing until its 2 years old so just 9 months to go LOL sounds like im expecting ........ So what is your average MPG with the 1.0 125 bhp Zetec S
