Who doesn’t love a great car that is fuel efficient, too… check out some of the new Fords that made MSN Autos’ “Best of the 4-Bangers” list. Here at Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble (serving Kingwood, Atascocita, Katy, and greater Houston area) we have a huge selection of cars, trucks and SUVs that can help you save at the pump.
#3- 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost
With a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, this Mustang gives you a lot more bang for your buck. With its variable intake and exhaust valve timing, a twin-scroll turbocharger, and a direct fuel injection system, the 2015 Mustang delivers an incredible 305 horsepower coupled with 300 lb-ft of torque. And thanks to the EcoBoost engine, this car will save you cash at the pump without sacrificing the muscle you expect from a Mustang. Look for it late 2014.
#7- 2014 Ford Focus ST
This speedy ride is a result of Ford’s effort to challenge the Volkswagen GTI. Judging by the specs, it certainly appears that the GTI is being put to the test. Outfitted with a 2.0-liter all-alumnimum EcoBoost engine, the ultra-light Focus ST is capable of going from zero to 60mph in under six seconds. Like the 2015 Mustang, the Focus ST features a direct injection system and a low-inertia turbocharger, both of which contribute to the car’s 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. With an EPA-estimated 26 mpg (city and highway combined) and SelectShift transmission, the Focus ST gives the feel sports car without guzzling all your gas.
#8- 2014 Ford Fiesta ST
Like the Focus ST, this car brings a hearty serving of speed and power without costing you an arm and a leg to fill up your tank. The slightly smaller, 1.6-liter engine is comparable to that of the Focus ST, clocking in at 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. That being said, what the Fiesta ST lacks in speed and power it makes up for in fuel economy and control. EPA-estimated 26/35mpg (city/highway) means you spend less time at the pump. Add in Electric Power-Assisted Steering and the AdvanceTrac system with Electronic Stability Control and you’ve got the powerful car with fantastic control that won’t make you empty your wallet every time you need gas.
