The all-new model of the Ford Fiesta ST is about to turn up the heat. Featuring a brand new engine, the next-generation model is taking the mobile party to the next level.
According to Autoguide.com, the engine in question is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder, boasting roughly 200 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque. It takes the place of the previous engine, a 1.6L, four-cylinder motor; although the new engine is smaller, it makes up for its lack in size with output.
With the new engine, the 2018 Fiesta ST marks the first time a Ford performance car has used a three-cylinder motor. One extra perk? Its cylinder deactivation feature is able to shut down one of the cylinders under light loads. Additionally, it can propel the vehicle to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds.
Drivers will also benefit three driving modes with the new hatch; the feature makes its debut with the Fiesta ST. The modes - Normal, Sport and Track - enable drivers to alter engine response, stability control, exhaust sound and more.
