Ford to Launch Fiesta ST in North America, Brings Big Speed and Style to the Small Car Market
• Fiesta ST -- a well-known hot hatch born in Europe and now ready for North America -- packs a punch wîth a 1.6-liter EcoBoost® engine producing nearly 200 horsepower
• New Fiesta ST is Ford's latest vehicle to wear the Sport Technologies badge, a global performance brand that debuted in North America earlier this year wîth the launch of the Focus ST
• Exclusively equipped wîth a six-speed manual transmission, Fiesta ST is expected to be a §egmènt leader in both performance and fuel efficiency
Small cars continue to be a hot §egmènt in North America and wîth the new Ford Fiesta ST, introduced at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, Ford is expected to have the hottest hatch around.
Ford Fiesta ST, a performance model first launched in Europe back in 2005, is yet another proof point from Ford that small cars are anything but boring. In addition to a precision sport-tuned suspension and an improved braking system, Ford Fiesta ST packs a punch under the hood.
A new high-output variant of the award-winning 1.6-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine propels Ford Fiesta ST wîth an estimated 197 horsepower and 214 lb.-ft. of torque. In comparison, Mini Cooper S makes do wîth 181 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft., while Chevrolet Sonic RS produces just 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft.
Únlike the competition, Ford Fiesta ST doesn't simply look like a performance car; it's got the guts to back it up.
Engine : 1.6 L., 4-cylinder
Power: 197 hp
Torque: 214 ft-lbs
'This is a rewarding car to rev,' says Mark Roberts, Fiesta calibration supervisor. 'With 177 lb.- ft. of torque available from just 1,600 rpm and 214 lb.-ft. by 3,500 rpm, Ford Fiesta ST gives the performance and feel of an engine twice its size. There's no waiting at all for the power to just push you back in your seat.'
Ford Fiesta ST may be born wîth racing DNA, but buyers won't have to pay for that performance at the pump. Available exclusively as a five-door hatchback in North America and wîth a six-speed manual transmission, Ford Fiesta ST is projected to achieve up to 34 mpg.
This compact performance machine sports a unique grille and chin spoiler wîth new rear diffuser and fascia extensions. Bright tipped dual-Exhaust pipes and high-mount spoiler along wîth unique 17-inch wheels complete the visual package: Ford Fiesta ST looks like it's made for the racetrack. The car is first of its nameplate to receive the Molten Orange tri-coat metallic paint.
Ford Fiesta ST §teering is more direct and responsive than the base model. A unique suspension wîth modified front knuckle makes for a quicker overall §teering ratio of 13.6:1.
The rear axle gets increased roll stiffness to improve stability through fast corners, while the Ford Fiesta ST body sits 15 millimeters closer to the ground than the base model.
Increased mechanical grip provided by the suspension improvements is further enhanced wîth electronic Torque Vectoring Control to reduce understeer during hard cornering maneuvers. Three-mode electronic stability control - standard, sport or off - enables the ST driver to select the amount of electronic aid based on current conditions. Overall, Ford Fiesta ST provides enthusiastic drivers wîth the ideal mix of performance handling and ride comfort.
Ford Fiesta ST will also sound good on the open road. It features the mechanical version of the sound symposer first used on the Focus ST, which went on sale in North America in 2012, to provide an enhanced soundtrack for drivers out tackling the open road. It is unique for Fiesta in that for the first time the engine sound is directly fed into the passenger cabin to accentuate feedback quality and response.
Ford Fiesta ST is the result of the combined efforts of Team RS in Europe and SVT in the Únited States.

Meet Ken Block and his 350 HP plus Focus ST TrackSTer at the Chicago Auto Show
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Ken Block made an appearance at the Chicago Auto
Show for the debut of the Ford Focus TrackSTer that he developed along with
the team from Fifteen52. The California based Fifteen52 and Block are
designing three different Ford Focus ST builds with the aim of making an
already great vehicle even better. Project ST launched back in the summer
of 2012 and, with regular updates to their website, has generated a lot of
enthusiasm leading up to this Ford Focus TrackSTer debut. Now that fans
have gotten a look at the first build, they can expect to see the remaining
two builds appearing throughout the country over the course of 2013 along
with Block and the Fifteen52 team.
Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.

2014 Ford Fiesta ST Walkaround Video Review with Ford SVT Engineer Tim Smith
Ford recently held a Media Drive in Santa Monica California for the all-new
2014 Ford Fiesta ST Hatchback. Tim Smith who is an engineer for the Ford
Special Vehicles Team was kind and gracious enough to give Autobytel a
thorough walkaround review of this potent little car. Let's see what makes
the ST unique from the regular Fiesta model.
Check out more on the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST
Starting out back, the ST gets a cool and aggressive body kit consisting of
a rear spoiler and diffuser. Down low the dual Exhaust tips have a bright chrome finish. The
most striking thing about this car seen here is the Molten Orange Metal
Tri-Coat paint job. This is the same paint found on the For Raptor Truck.
Up front the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST features a unique fascia with a
trapezoidal honeycomb mesh grille. This gives the Fiesta a sharp aggressive
look to mirror that of the Focus ST.
The 17-inch alloy wheels are unique to the United States. The ST model gets
rear disc brakes and special brake pads. The suspension has been heavily
reworked featuring new springs, dampeners, and a 75% stiffer twist beam.
This upgrades to the suspension result in more handling control and a
flatter cornering ability. The steering arms were shortened which quickens
the ratio. The end result is a very responsive car that is a blast to
Under the hood lives a 1.6 liter turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine that makes 197 horsepower and 215 lb-ft.
of torque. The 6-speed manual transmission helps the Fiesta ST achieve 26
MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway.
On the inside the Fiesta ST fits the performance car treatment. The Recaro
seats have color matched inserts. The seats offer the lateral support
needed when charging into turns at high speeds. The Advanced Trac System
features 3 modes: Normal, Sport, and the Full Off. That means when you get
to the track the traction control can be turned off! The interior also
features sport pedals and an upgraded steering wheel.
