Three cylinders might go a long way for Ford
- The EPA rates the fuel economy of the three-cylinder Ford (F -0.5%) Fiesta at 45 miles per gallon for highway driving.
- The high-altitude fuel rating could give the model an edge over comparable cars from Honda and Toyota if consumers are willing to adapt to the smaller engine.
- What to watch: Ford's EcoBoost is starting to deliver as promised - giving models a fuel economy rating that cuts the gap with hybrids and diesels.
