New kid on the block - Ecoboost 1.0 125 HP

Hello, I present:
I live in europe, and just bought a Focus Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost three-cylinder engine 125 hp with manual transmission 6-speed
European Titanium specification is quite different from that of the U.S.
I guess you must be a curiosity for this engine in a Focus, but I'm really pleased with the engine.
I had many doubts to buy it, but I'm happy, has a surprising answer, seems to has more than 125 hp, is very elastic, you can carry almost any gear and the engine always responds.
It is very smooth, no vibrations, and the sound is quite nice, inside the cabin is barely audible. Consumption is very good, it really is a very good engine, my only concern is durability, but as it is new, I will not know until several years.
Thank you very much.

Well, is an Oxford white Titanium.



The rims are 17 inches, are a standard package of Titanium, I think these rims aren't sold in the United States.

There is talk it will eventually show up here in the Focus, I see you have the manual, was going to ask you if you had DCT because I wonder if you had issues with the transmission. That's a nice set-up, 6 speed manual with that engine. I am sure it's fine, I had a MKIV Volkswagen with a 115HP 2.0 or better know as 2.SLOW but it got around okay but not good fuel economy.

How is the fuel economy?

Nope we do not have the rim selection that Europe has which is vast, on my Titanium these 17" are standard.




There are two other optional choices, polished 17" and 5 spoke 18".

Titanium models here do not come in Oxford White, only "white" is White Platinum Metallic Tricoat which is $595 option, the Focus looks exceptional in White. Oxford White is available only on the SE and ST.

Also we only have the 5 speed manual or the 6 Speed DCT nor do we do not get HID headlamps at all, not even an option but we have the black out lights which look pretty swell.

The "Cambelt in Oil" is really something that I'm too stupid to understand.
I'll stick to a CamChain any day.

My daughter is looking at the mini cars available in the US for college use in a year... she is looking at the 500, iQ, Spark, and waiting for this engine to appear in the Fiesta...

Looks great. Those wheels were the standard US Titanium wheel in 2012. They were on mine before I switched them out for ST wheels.
