When fuel prices were at an all-time high, car manufacturers started shifting their attention to building vehicles that were more fuel efficient and that was where the Ford Fiesta came in but the demand has changed since then.

With the consumers now losing interest in owning a more fuel-efficient model, models like the base Ford Fiesta are being ignored and Ford has now announced that they will be removing the 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine option from the Ford Fiesta lineup when the 2018 model arrives in the US.

The rest of the world will still be getting the engine but it will no longer be offered in the US as sales numbers showed that the US consumers are more interested in SUVs and pickups. With the three-cylinder engine gone, the only option that US buyers will be offered is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that will only offer 27mpg in the city and 35mpg on the highway.
