Disappointed that the three-door is not going to make it here. I need the wider front doors, w/ ATX. WWT??

Agreed. Porsche has done it forever and I have hated it forever. I really don't like it. Keep the current Fiesta!

It's all the rage these days. More gears more mileage.

And for serious, I want to meet the person who will cross shop a Fiesta with a Fusion.

Puh-leeeeeeze.

I do NOT like any of the new designs... I cant stand the new look of the Ford cars. As it has been mentioned, they all look the same. I cant believe Im saying this but I like the 08-11 style better..

I prefer the current design, but the new is not that bad. The article mentions the new engine will be the 1.0L ecoboost which is a 3 cylinder I believe. That could be neat. I'm just waiting for the Fiesta ST.

the new Fords may look nice and look better than anything else out there.... but they look like all the other Ford products (Mustang & trucks excluded). they're going too far with this Evo's nose crap. they all look like some kind of fish. pick ONE CAR for it and pick another design for the next car. thats why i like my 2nd gen better than any of the new Fords. it doesnt look like anything else out on the road nor in the Ford line up today or when it was in production so i agree with you, fhh02a.

Posted via FF Mobile Uhh, yes it did. When the 05-07 focus was out, a bunch of fords products had foglights just like the focus and a hexigon grill...just like the focus. Then the 08-11 focus was out and all Fords products had the three bar chrome grill, except the Mustang. Now Ford is giving their lineup the evos concept face, except the Mustang. What a surprise...sorry but just about every car maker does this and their line ups share a common design to make them a "family." Nothing has changed....

2005- same headlight shape, same grill shape with hex grill and chrome surround, same foglights or foglight spot, and same lower valance. Tons of trapezoids.

i'm talking about my generation Focus not the previous generation. i mean how IMO my generation didnt look like anything else in the Ford line up of that model year. mine was the only one (IIRC) that had a 2 bar grill too!

Rumors that the Dunkleosteus Fiesta may come to the U.S. with a turbocharged, direct-injected three-cylinder EcoBoost engine persist. The new 1.0-liter engine is said to pack 125 horsepower and allow the Fiesta to hit 55 mpg, but we'll take that miles per gallon figure with a few grains of salt. Other speculation involves the triple also getting an electric supercharger that could boost power to 175 horsepower
What are the Germans drinking these days?
