The New Ford Fiesta Packs Big Power in a Small Package

Many of today’s vehicles with powerful engines also feature large and clunky bodies that are less than fuel-efficient. Unlike such vehicles, the new Ford Fiesta ST is an eminently popular compact vehicle that nevertheless packs a big punch. Contributing to this power output are well-designed yet fuel-efficient motors and performance braking systems.

The new 2019 Ford Fiesta ST includes a very capable, 1.6L EcoBoost motor under its hood. Enclosed in this diminutive package is a direct-injection, turbocharged power plant that can bring a very respectable 202-foot-pounds of torque and 197-horsepower to the table. Combined with the relatively lightweight of the vehicle, this motor can really cause this car to get up and go.

There's more to the story because the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST also sports a specialized 6-speed transmission. The variation between the six gear-ranges allows this vehicle to produce considerable low-end torque while at the same time giving it the ability to eat up the road at the high ends of the gear scale.
