There is always something newer and better. If you were always waiting for the next best thing, you'd be a super rich pedestrian, because you'd never buy anything. Besides when It's that new its not safety tested right away.
Back in June I knew that a performance Fiesta was on the way when Mark Kaufman stated more than once at the Carlisle Ford Nationals, that by 2013 90% of Ford products would have an EcoBoost engine option.
That is 9 of 10 Ford cars will have it. Use some logic and you can figure out that the Fiesta would be included in that.
