SPIED: Fiesta EcoBoost…March 19, 2010
After word from Ford last year that there was going to be no replacement for the Fiesta XR4/ST, comes these spy shots of what appears to be an EcoBoosted Fiesta. So, is it the return of the XR4/ST? An RS? OR… A SEMA project? That remains to be seen, but follow the jump for all the info….
If this is an official Ford project due for release hopefully late this year / early next, is it powered by the 1.6 or 2.0 litre EcoBoost 4 cylinder? The 1.6 litre version has been rumored to be good for 126kW (170hp) – which makes it the obvious choice for an XR4/ST model, while the can’t-wait-for-it 2.0 litre version should be making 180kW – which would be MORE than enough for an RS version!
Sporting 17″ Speedline alloys, a larger than normal rear hatch wing, dual exhaust, rear diffuser AND an intercooler in the front airdam, this certainly is going to be a speed demon in whatever guise it turns out to be.
