I finally got my VIN number from the dealer today, and went screaming into the FORD ETIS website (www.etis.ford.com)to see what I could find out about my car (that I do not have yet)..



this is the info it showed me :
<t></t><table width="95%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, Trebuchet, _sans;"><t><tr><td colspan="2" style="font-size: 0.8em;">Primary Features

</td></tr></t></table>

Now correct me if I am wrong, but this is saying that it was buit in November of 2012? and the engine is worrying me , as it states a Duratec Sigma engine, which is thePREDECESSOR to the Ecotech engine. (info source:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Sigma_engine)... I ordered this car in February.... of this year :( why am I getting an old engine, and old build ?

Have others who have used the Ford Etis website , entered their VIN number , also seen this engine type? or have you seen EcoBoost?

Mine was ordered in November and is only five gear auto.1.6 . Getting 35.4 mpg city centre/ motorway. I think it is the same engine as the fiesta.

I have the answer to this now, if you have a 5 gear automatic "PowerShift" , then you will have a duratec engine, if you have a 5 gear manual, you will have an ecoboost engine.

The Ecoboost engine is not available yet for Automatics.

Ahhh, that be why Ididn'tknow then... Our ford dealer is out of Bmax brochures...
I flicked though one on the day I ordered one, but each of us that were there at the time (3 of us), thought the other had picked one up... since going back they had ran out. They said they would send one to my home address.. but it never arrived..
