All-New Ford Fiesta ST Debuts With Itty Bitty Turbo 3-Cylinder Engine

The next-generation model of the ridiculously fun Ford Fiesta ST has debuted with a new engine.

The 2018 Ford Fiesta ST will now be powered by an all-new 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder with about 200 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque. This engine replaces the 1.6L four-cylinder motor in the old ST, and, although it is smaller, output increases by a bit.

This is the first time Ford’s three-cylinder motor has been used in a performance car, and it even has cylinder deactivation that will shut down one cylinder under light loads. The engine should help the hatch blast to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.7 seconds. As before, the Ford Fiesta ST will only be available with a six-speed manual.

The little hatch also gets three driving modes for the first time — Normal, Sport and Track — that change the engine response, throttle response, steering feel and response, stability control, and exhaust sound.

Back when I was in high school I had a mercury lynx, manual of course. I love manual transmissions and my Escape is the first automatic I have EVER owned. This fiesta would of been a sweet high school ride.

Probably why I'm going on 24 years of marriage, my wife has driven manuals her whole life as well.

What about this one?

We have 2 2014 Fiestas with the 1.0L EcoBoost 3 cylinder engine. They have plenty of power with 123 HP for accelerating quickly, climbing hills, or passing. More for such a small car seems like overkill unless you're racing it.

I have a '16 Fiesta ST with a COBB tune and it's a blast to drive. I can only imagine what the Fiesta RS would be like to drive with 240 bhp. Based on that photo, I'm guessing it won't be available in the U.S. since we only get the 4-door.
