The Fiesta ST is powered by a 1.6L turbocharged EcoBoost engine, which packs 197 horsepower and 214 lb-ft. of torque. This is a rewarding car to rev," says Mark Roberts, Fiesta calibration supervisor. "With 177 lb.-ft. of torque available from just 1,600 rpm and 214 lb.-ft. by 3,500 rpm, Fiesta ST gives the performance and feel of an engine twice its size. There's no waiting at all for the power to just push you back in your seat." Even with almost 200 horsepower under the hood, the Fiesta ST will still get up to 34 mpg.
