Hey, so, you know how the 2018 Ford Fiesta ST (THAT WE WON’T GET HERE) has launch control? Do you know how freaking awesome that is? Do you know how mad I am?
My colleagues, as well as much of the car enthusiast community, are dealing with a collective freakout upon learning Ford will be killing off all its sedans and hatchbacks and keeping one real car, the Mustang, in North America. Ford is doomed, they say. But I don’t share that perspective—no one wanted to buy those…
The Ford Fusion, Focus, C-Max, Taurus, and Fiesta—all on the way out in North America as Ford transitions its lineup to one that is all but entirely dominated by SUVs, crossovers and trucks, the automaker announced today.
There will be a new Ford Focus next year, and for now we can also enjoy the Fiesta and Fusion at our leisure. But will any of these cars be sold in the U.S. after 2018? The way things are going, that feels more in doubt than ever.
Americans stumble across the landscape in a love-drunk stupor borne out of our archnemesis, the crossover. “Give me unusually heavy and tall wagons that are okay at a lot of things but truly great at not much,” they cry. And because of the insatiable hunger, the Chevy Sonic, the Chevy Impala, the Ford Fiesta, and the…
We all have fantastic dreams of sweet drifts, jumps and donuts after watching one of Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos, but you don’t need a big budget to hoon it up. This little 60-horsepower non-RS Fiesta shows us how it’s done in hilarious, delightful detail.
So, here’s a conundrum: it seems like the next-gen Ford Fiesta—the beloved and reasonably priced egg-shaped hatch we know and love—won’t be making it to the U.S. Multiple outlets (including us) have reported such. Only Ford won’t confirm it.
It seems very likely that the party is over for one of the most fun and affordable hatchbacks on the U.S. market, the Ford Fiesta ST. The current one, soon to be replaced by a new Fiesta that America probably will not get, puts out about 200 horsepower and has a starting price of around $21,000. With rebates and…
The next-generation Ford Fiesta may not be coming to the United States because you didn’t buy enough of them. Apparently, the seventh generation Fiesta will be developed for Europe, the Middle East and some African countries where it’s actually selling well—but not us. Buy a Ford Fiesta ST while you still can?
It’s there. I mean, it’s not. You feel it. The absence. It weighs on you, a hunger. Maybe you could fulfill your inner empty with this excellent 2011 Ford Fiesta caged and prepped rally car previously run by one of America’s greatest talents.
The Ford Fiesta ST is one of our most beloved hot hatches, which makes sense because it is Small and Quick and Good. Now Ford is attempting to make it even Gooder, with an all-new ST based on the seventh-generation Fiesta that is less small than before but promises to be even better. Also, it’s down to three cylinders…
Sébastien Ogier, who is made of winning instead of flesh and bone like the rest of us, won the first round of the 2017 World Rally Championship at Rallye Monte-Carlo this weekend in the Ford Fiesta WRC. I doubt that will be the last time this happens.
The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without some stop-motion animation. Ford has released the fifth installment of their Snowkhana series with a die-cast Fiesta rally car racing through classic movies and holiday scenes. Can you name them all?
The coming World Rally Championship contenders are wider, faster and more powerful than the cars competing in the WRC today. Let’s just watch one go super fast and spray rocks and things.
M-Sport modifies Ford Fiestas to leap through the air with ridiculous feats of horsepower in the World Rally Championship. Let’s marvel at the latest Ford Fiesta WRC in all its eyebrow’d, smiling glory.
The 2018 Ford Fiesta, which will come in four delectable flavors, also means a new Fiesta ST is likely in the works. But we might be waiting for a bit before we get it, which is miserable garbage and I hate waiting, and so I curse the nature of spacetime itself.
