Ford News: Next Ford Fiesta ST To Be Revealed On Friday

Recommended Posts

Ford has teased the next-generation Fiesta ST before its official debut later this week. In a video posted to Ford's Instagram, a pre-production model is seen driving through a factory. From what we can see, it looks like the ST will look similar to the standard Fiesta ST-Line shown back in November. We're expecting some other design changes to make the ST stand out from other Fiesta models. No word on the powertrain, though some suspect it will a 1.5L EcoBoost three-cylinder four-cylinder.

Ford doesnt have a 1.5L EB 3cyl. 

The 1.5L in the Ford EB engine line is a 4cyl.

Nonetheless, this car will be a hit. Just like the current generation.

Looks like a solid competitor to the Chevy Spark.

Honestly the Spark has never been a competitor to the Fiesta ST.

The Fiesta is sort of in between the Spark and Sonic in substance, although the ST has been the only real performance option.

I'm thinking more Sonic like, but agree......might be time to do something useful with the Sonic now.....

I have wished for a Sonic to compete with the ST.  Would have preferred it be done before they completely screwed up the Sonic's design in the latest refresh though.......

We need a Sonic RS with some substance, a Fit Si and a Polo GTI now. Hot hatches for everyone!!!!! 

Yes, Yes, YESSSSS

Bring on the hot hatches!!

The only vehicle that really competes with the Fiesta ST is the Abarth and Cooper S, right? And those will never sell in large numbers so Ford really kind of owns the market until GM puts a real RS to the Sonic.

Does VW make a GTI version of the Polo, just not here?

I may or may not have been falling asleep when writing this story.

They're a turbo 1.8 w/ 190hp, and like right at 200tq for the DSG cars, and bit more (215~?) with a stick.

Nice! I actually just looked it up.. The DSG 7spd vs the 6spd are pretty significant..

192hp

DSG: 184tq

6spd: 236tq

The Polo is definitely the best looking sub compact car though. Nothing flashy just clean and simple. That's probably also one reason I really like the Golf as well.

As much as I wish we got the Polo here.. realistically I wouldn't consider something smaller than the Golf anyway. So, while it would be nice to have here I don't know how many people would buy these anyway.

      It is official. Ford and Volkswagen announced this morning a new global alliance that will focus on developing "commercial vans and medium-sized pickups." Ford will handle the development of next-generation mid-size pickups (Ranger and Amarok), along with developing and building larger vans for the European market. Volkswagen for its part will work on a small city van.
      “Volkswagen and Ford will harness our collective resources, innovation capabilities and complementary market positions to even better serve millions of customers around the world. At the same time, the alliance will be a cornerstone for our drive to improve competitiveness,” said Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess.
      “Over time, this alliance will help both companies create value and meet the needs of our customers and society. It will not only drive significant efficiencies and help both companies improve their fitness, but also gives us the opportunity to collaborate on shaping the next era of mobility,” added Ford CEO Jim Hackett.
      The two also announced plans to explore "autonomous vehicles, mobility services and electric vehicles," along with adding new vehicle programs.

      Volkswagen AG And Ford Motor Company Launch Global Alliance
      Alliance leverages the two global automakers’ strengths to better compete, innovate and serve customers Alliance does not involve cross-ownership between the two companies Companies to first deliver medium pickup trucks for global customers, aiming to start in 2022, and intend to follow with commercial vans in Europe Van and pickup agreements are targeted to deliver scale and efficiencies for each company starting in 2023 Volkswagen and Ford also are committed to exploring potential collaboration on EVs, autonomous vehicles and mobility services DETROIT, Jan. 15, 2019 – Volkswagen AG and Ford Motor Company today announced the first formal agreements in a broad alliance that positions the companies to boost competitiveness and better serve customers in an era of rapid change in the industry.
      Volkswagen CEO Dr. Herbert Diess and Ford CEO Jim Hackett confirmed that the companies intend to develop commercial vans and medium-sized pickups for global markets beginning as early as 2022. The alliance will drive significant scale and efficiencies and enable both companies to share investments in vehicle architectures that deliver distinct capabilities and technologies.
      The companies estimate the commercial van and pickup cooperation will yield improved annual pre-tax operating results, starting in 2023.
      In addition, Volkswagen and Ford have signed a memorandum of understanding to investigate collaboration on autonomous vehicles, mobility services and electric vehicles and have started to explore opportunities. Both companies also said they were open to considering additional vehicle programs in the future. The teams will continue working through details in the coming months.
      “Over time, this alliance will help both companies create value and meet the needs of our customers and society,” Hackett said. “It will not only drive significant efficiencies and help both companies improve their fitness, but also gives us the opportunity to collaborate on shaping the next era of mobility.”
      Diess added: “Volkswagen and Ford will harness our collective resources, innovation capabilities and complementary market positions to even better serve millions of customers around the world. At the same time, the alliance will be a cornerstone for our drive to improve competitiveness.” 
      The alliance, which does not entail cross-ownership between the two companies, will be governed by a joint committee. This committee will be led by Hackett and Diess and will include senior executives from both companies.
      Commercial van and pickup collaboration
      Ford and Volkswagen both have strong commercial van and pickup businesses around the globe, with popular nameplates such as the Ford Transit family and Ranger as well as the Volkswagen Transporter, Caddy and Amarok.
      The companies’ collective light commercial vehicle volumes from 2018 totaled approximately 1.2 million units globally, which could represent the industry’s highest-volume collaboration as production scales.
      Demand for both medium pickups and commercial vans is expected to grow globally in the next five years. The alliance will enable the companies to share development costs, leverage their respective manufacturing capacity, boost the capability and competitiveness of their vehicles and deliver cost efficiencies, while maintaining distinct brand characteristics.
      Through the alliance, Ford will engineer and build medium-sized pickups for both companies which are expected to go to market as early as 2022. For both parties, Ford intends to engineer and build larger commercial vans for European customers, and Volkswagen intends to develop and build a city van.

      Ram released some teaser images on its website yesterday giving us a preview of the 2500HD and 3500HD that are due to be unveiled on Monday at the Detroit Auto Show.  The images look like they are primarily from the top zoot Limited model, but in any case, show an aggressive grille, an attractive set of multibeam headlamps, and a RamBox. They also released a video that gives you some other hints like a column mounted shifter and a large infotainment screen.


       
      The RAM press conference is at 9:10 am on Monday, January 14th in the Detroit Cobo Center.

      There was a number of people who were disappointed at the news that Ford wouldn't be bringing over the Ranger Raptor to the U.S. When you take into consideration that the current-generation model has been sold around the world since 2011, Ford decided it was too late in the lifecycle of the model to design a Raptor variant to meet various regulations. But there is the chance of the next-generation Ranger Raptor coming to the U.S.
      Road & Track has done some sleuthing into social media profiles for various Ford engineers and has uncovered some interesting information. The current Ranger has an internal project code of P375 and is expected to stick around for a few more years. The next-generation model, due in 2022, uses the code of P703. It is expected that the next-generation Ranger will be sharing a number of parts with the Bronco.
      How does the Raptor fit into this picture? In a recently posted project description, it mentions a chassis engineer has been working on a Ranger Raptor with the P703 code being built with North America in mind. The engineer has also worked on the current version of the Ranger (known as P375N) and the Ranger Raptor. Doing some more digging and speaking to some sources at Ford, the new Ranger Raptor is likely to be called “Project Redback” internally. Project Redback was the project name for the current Ranger Raptor.
      Road & Track doesn't have any information the powertrain, but speculates that North America would likely get a gas engine. Other markets get a diesel engine for the Raptor.
