    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.

    Looks good. I wonder how it compares side by side with the current gen FiST?

    @UnfocusedST they did NOT keep the nice test wheels I said about. I don't like these ones nearly as much.

    Neat that it's snappier though. The light redesign is nice.

    I wonder if there will be different wheel options now like the FoST?

    That would be nice! At the highly affordable price they are the extra few hundred dollars for a sportier looking option would almost make me want one of these as a work vehicle to save miles on the Focus.

    I don't see it as a face lift but the next gen. It has a different engine. That along with body style updating should make it gen 8.
