2014 Ford Fiesta ST will feature a turbocharged engine with 180 hp

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 20, 2012

The timing of the leakage of the details about the Ford Fiesta ST implies that it is set to make its U.S. debut at the 2012 LA Auto Show. We learned that powering the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST is a 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine that delivers 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.

Just like the Focus ST, the Fiesta ST will be equipped with Ford’s ‘Sound Symposer’ system that amplifies the engine’s sound.

The front-wheel drive hatch will feature a six-speed manual transmission. It also uses torque-vectoring technology and a three-mode stability control system. It rides on a set of 17-inch wheels from the plant, covered with Bridgestone Potenza tires. It handles a lot like a real sports car due to its tuned and lowered sport suspension.

The Fiesta ST appears sportier and more aggressive due to a body kit that takes inspiration from Ford’s World Rally Championship race car.

Other exterior changes include a rear spoiler, a pair of chrome exhaust tips, and blacked-out headlight surrounds. The Fiesta ST will be available in seven colors. The pricing information is expected to be announced very soon.
