That’s right, Ford made a big announcement today.
The fact the Fiesta ST was due to be shown at this week’s LA Autoshow was no surprise to most of us who’ve been paying attention. And that this supposed “concept” was actually going to be pretty much the production version of the Fiesta ST was no real secret either. But…we were honestly blown away when we learned today that the ST’s 1.6L EcoBoost would come from the factory with 197-hp. Think about it, folks; that’s the same power level other companies are achieving with their 2.0L turbo engines.
To say we at Project ST can’t wait to get our grubby hands on a Fiesta ST (or three) is the understatement of the decade. Clearly the stage is set now for some serious younger vs. older sibling rivalry.
