The standard 1.5L EcoBoost® engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission which produces a smooth and easy to handle ride. Both this engine and the available 2.0L EcoBoost® engine come with Auto Start-Stop Technology, which helps with fuel efficiency because it automatically turns off your engine when you come to a complete stop. It will seamlessly restart as soon as your foot leaves the brake pedal and makes contact with the gas pedal.
