The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST will indeed be powered by a 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine with 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. And similar to the Focus ST, the Fiesta ST will feature the automaker’s ‘Sound Symposer’ system which amplifies the sound produced by the engine.
The front-wheel drive hatch will come with a six-speed manual transmission and will also sport torque-vectoring technology and a three-mode stability control system. It will roll on 17-inch wheels from the factory paired with Bridgestone Potenza tires, handling like a real sports car thanks to a tuned and lowered sport suspension.
Aesthetically, the Fiesta ST will be more sporty and aggressive thanks to a body kit inspired by Ford’s World Rally Championship race car. A rear spoiler, a pair of chrome exhaust tips, and blacked-out headlight surrounds complete the exterior changes.
Seven colors will be offered on the Fiesta ST and we expect pricing to be announced in the near future.
