Changes for the new model year include all-new styling, the addition of EcoBoost turbocharged engines, an upgraded interior and more comfort and convenience features. Base S, SE, SEL and top-of-the-line Titanium trims are available. Standard on the base S model is a tweaked version of last year’s 168-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder. The two new EcoBoost engines include a 173-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder (SE, SEL) and a 237-hp, 2.0-liter four- cylinder (Titanium), both turbocharged. The latter replaces the outgoing model’s V-6. All are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
