Superchips offering performance ECU remap for latest Ford Focus ST

Performance ECU remap specialist Superchips Ltd. is offering a more dynamic and more menacing Mk3 Focus ST 2.0T. The latest production Ford Focus ST is already considered as dynamic and menacing, thanks to its 2.0-litre direct injection turbocharged Ecoboost engine that provides up to 246bhp of power and allows the hatchback to reach 154mph.

But the specialist’s latest latest product – a Superchips ECU remap for the Focus ST 2.0T -- is set to further improve the hatchback’s performance. Banking on a combination of chassis dyno and road testing, Superchips developed a performance remap for hatchback’s ECU, thereby optimizing boost levels, fuelling and ignition timing on the Ecoboost engine.

This results in a Superchips conversion that boosts power output and enhances response and refinement, but still retains factory failsafe protocols and reliability levels.

New Ford Fiesta ST will not be available in the United States

It was in February when Ford revealed the new Fiesta ST, just before it made its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. But it is not until next year that the model goes on sale in both three- and five-door variants. Today, the entry level Ford Fiesta, and the sporty ST Line trim can already be purchased in Europe. But in the United States, they will have to be content with the old Fiesta for now as the 2018 model year is set to arrive with only minor changes.

Most importantly, what people should know is that the US-spec Fiesta will retire and that the seventh generation model will not hit the stateside. This news was recently shared to us by the European Director of Ford Performance, Leo Roeks, when he was interviewed at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The automaker says that there is a low demand for this class in the United States, which led them to make the decision to eventually get rid of the Fiesta in the market. If sales are low, having large inventories would be a big problem.

In other news, Volkswagen bosses made a decision of not bringing the new Polo to the United States, including the much sexier Polo GTI. Another sad news for US customers is that Toyota will also be discontinuing the supercharged Yaris GRMN as well. In fact, the new Yaris will actually be very limited, even in Europe, where only 400 examples will be sold around the continent.

Ford presents next generation of Fiesta ST with new 1.5 three-cylinder engine

Come and say hello to the next generation of the performance version of the Ford Fiesta, as powered by a three-cylinder engine. Wait, a three-cylinder engine? Yes, that’s no typo. The new generation of the Ford Fiesta ST is really powered not by a four-cylinder or a six-cylinder, but by a three-cylinder engine.

This new three-cylinder powerplant features a displacement of around 1.5 liters and is armed with an array of superior engine technologies like turbocharging, Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing and high-pressure fuel injection – all of which allow this mill to provide better performance as well as superb fuel efficiency.

The new mill is able to deliver 197 hp (147 kW or 200 PS) of max output and 214 lb.-ft. (290 Nm) of peak torque, allowing the new generation of the Fiesta ST to sprint from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 6.7 seconds. It is as powerful -- but has more torque -- as the current 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine fitted on the base North American version of the current Ford Fiesta ST.

Ford finally introduces the five-door Fiesta ST in Europe

Back in 2013, Ford released its latest Fiesta ST model. Exclusive only in North America, the Fiesta ST was sold as a five-door hatch. Those in Europe complained that they only had the three-door model. This year however, Ford’s Europe division aims to make it up to its customers by bringing in the five-door supermini into the continent. Hopefully, this move will help boost sales before an all-new Fiesta is launched and introduced to the public in 2017 and an all-new ST version arrives in early 2018.

Nothing much has changed with the European Fiesta ST. Aside from a change from a three-door to a more practical five-door version, the European Fiesta ST is still powered by the same turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine which punches out 182 horsepower (134 kilowatts) and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The five-door model however is heavier compared to its previous version but is capable of a 0 to 62 mph sprint of 6.9 seconds. There has been no official announcement about its top speed but it is estimated to be about the same as the three-door’s 139 mph.

Five-door Fiesta ST returns 46.3 mpg UK in the combined cycle and emits around 141 g/km of carbon dioxide. Compared to the three-door model, there’s a decrease of 1.5 mpg UK and an increase of 3 g/km emission.

Ford is introducing its most powerful production Fiesta yet, the new Ford Fiesta ST200. This new Fiesta offering is powered by a calibrated 1.6-liter EcoBoost petrol engine that develops 10 percent more output (to 200 PS) and 20 percent more torque (to 290 Nm).

With this amount of output and torque from the 1.6-liter EcoBoost petrol engine, the model could accelerate from zero to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 6.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

More importantly, the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine that powers the Ford Fiesta ST200 provides an extra 15 PS of output and 30 Nm of torque for up to 20 seconds through transient overboost. Since it features a shorter final drive ratio of 4.06 – compared to 3.82 in the Fiesta ST -- the Ford Fiesta ST200 boasts of improved in-gear acceleration for better drivability.

If yesterday it was just a rumor, today the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST made its debut ahead of 2012 LA Auto Show, which will open its doors later this week. As expected, power comes from a 1.6-liter Eco-Boost four-cylinder engine delivering 197 horsepower and 214 lb.-ft. of torque. This makes the 2014 Fiesta ST more powerful than its rivals, the Mini Cooper S with its 181 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft., and the Chevrolet Sonic RS that produces just 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft.

The new Fiesta ST will be available in the United States only as a five-door hatchback and with a six-speed manual transmission. According to the official press release, the car is expected to deliver 34 mpg.

The design is completed by the unique 17-inch wheels. Moreover, the new Fiesta ST is the first of its nameplate to receive the Molten Orange tri-coat metallic paint. The big surprise found on the new car is the mechanical version of the sound symposer, which was first used on the Focus ST.

Ford will proceed with plans to offer the sub-compact hot hatch to market after having received positive reviews for the Fiesta ST Concept. Steve Ling, Ford’s Marketing Manager, said that the ST treatment will be applied on the Fiesta next. The last time that the Fiesta ST was seen was at the Geneva Motor Show last year.

Back then, it was a production ready model that was expected to make it in Europe. Ford has yet to confirm if the super-subcompact will be offered in other regions.

It’s likely that a Fiesta ST (most probably a 5-door hatchback instead of a 3-door for Europe) is on its way to North America. Ling said that the same torque vectoring control system technology in the Focus ST will be used in the new Fiesta.

The Abarth 500 has the capability of making heads turn wherever it passes in the UK due to its compact and sporty look. The scorpion logo is prominently shown off in the model too, making the vehicle appear even more imposing. It is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine that produces 133 bhp. The competition involving hot hatches has always demanded better performances, a challenge that tuning company Superchips Ltd. is willing to meet.

Superchips equipped the 500 with a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine that has been given Abarth’s Bosch MED7.9.10 engine management system so that it could offer more power.
