2014 changes

Anyone have any inside information or heard anything about possible changes for 2014 models? Still hoping for a 6 speed manual...

Note I doubt the EcoBoost i3 is coming here in the current Focus yet as they said they were going to test the waters here in the Fiesta first.

The article I read said it will be more like 47mpg (US). But still!

I really just want the torque from idle to 3k RPM that I currently don't have.

According this story, Motortrend said 2014, probably a 2015 Model.

This is the 1.0L Ecoboost, quite small, if I'm getting 44 with mine currently on the highway (engine is not even broken in) than I can expect the 1.0L to get even greater mileage, plus I am sure it will come equipped with the automatic engine shut off that's optional on the new Fusion.

They should make the standard engine the 1.6 turbo from the fiesta st with 6-spd manual or auto.
