Make sure the engine is cold. You can try pushing down on it to get some leverage while turning to remove it.

Tom, Thanks for replying to my question. I have tried pushing down while turning the cap, that didn't work. Do you know if that cap has some type of internal spring that locks it into place?

Got it!! Had to take a wrench to it!

There is a little piece of plastic at the back of the coolant cap (on the 2014 Fiesta) that stops it from unscrewing. Not sure exactly why but it stops the cap from turning.
