Ford Fiesta ST caught testing in Colorado, U.S. model in the offing?

Ford is running the high-elevation numbers on its five-door, six-speed manual Fiesta ST in the mountains of Colorado. We're going to hope this means that all our finger-crossing has served its purpose, and the hot hatch is finally headed for U.S. showrooms. Remember, the five-door concept was teased at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year before the Euro-market three-door was unveiled in Geneva, but all Ford would say recently was no decision had been made on a version for us.

The Fiesta ST in Europe gets 177 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of twist from its 1.6-liter EcoBoost four. Just because it's testing on Loveland Pass doesn't mean it will go on sale in the States, but nevertheless, we're going to go the optimistic route and assume that the amount of smoke still swirling around the tuned Fiesta over the past year has got to lead to fire. That and this gallery of spy shots will get us by until the next smoke signals are raised, probably very soon.Ford Fiesta ST caught testing in Colorado, U.S. model in the offing? originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 24 Sep 2012 16:58:00 EST.

Curb weight for a regular Fiesta hatch is 2,537, so somewhere around 2600lbs would be fair, maybe 2650, because of added goodies, etc.

How much more testing does Ford need to do?? Sell it already! The SVTF was clearly an unfinished product and it sold OK. [hihi] I just wish we could get the 3 door in the US... it would be a near-perfect replacement for my old SVT Focus.
