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.

factory tuned 2014 Ford Fiesta ST at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.

came back as a 2011 model. With the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST you get more

aforementioned items make this a great vehicle for young enthusiasts. The
