Ford Fiesta ST Concept

We saw a lot of good news in Frankfurt at Ford in the form of various ST Concept models, but we have not seen!

It’s the door version of the Fiesta ST. And through Ford reiterated that the Fiesta ST as yet only a concept, you can safely assume that this thing almost unchanged in the showroom afterwards. With the 1.6 EcoBoost block with 180 hp it is indeed a great competitor for a significant bump VAG products and the example we tested recently Abarth Punto Evo Esses.


The Fiesta ST looks nice in any case, and Ford has a reputation to uphold what is right steering hatchbacks are concerned, so in that respect. We are also not particularly worried.

Do you want the best then you will probably? The three-door Fiesta ST but want something more practical use than are those two extra doors still very nice? The five-door Fiesta ST will fair light first seen at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 18 starts.

Ford confirms new Escape (Kuga successor) for LA Auto Show

Ford Departure Concept

Ford Departure Concept

In November, the 2013 model (really!) and thus the third generation to Escape the American exhibition. The styling will be based on that of the (pictured above) out concept.

The Escape is a big unknown in us, the Dutch way to get him as quickly against, and the SUV / Crossover amassed perhaps the best known one by hybrid B. Obama to have a boss. In the U.S., is currently selling the second generation, carrying a large number of four-cylinder (2.3 and 2.5 liter Duratec) or a 3.0 V6. A logical choice for a car of around 4.40 meters to 1.80 meters.
Whether the new generation comes to Europe, we know (yet), but the U.S. gets too guerdons engines: a 1.6-liter Duratec and 2.0 liters, which are known from the Focus ST and the Mondeo and S-Max.  The last block in the Explorer will present criticism to endure, but the Escape is smaller and lighter.


The all-new Ford Escape, slated for reveal next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show features a powertrain lineup with three fuel-efficient four-cylinder options, include the new 1.6-and 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and a 2.5-liter Ti VCT-four-cylinder. The Escape Will Be Ford’s first SUV to be available with two fuel-efficient EcoBoost engines, Delivering class leading fuel economy and performance.

The reason we write about is because the Escape and Kuga closely related. We do not have good access to Ford’s brand strategy, but it is quite possible that what the Escape absorbed a large extent, the new Kuga holds. There has even been argued that both models in the next generation will merge.  Therefore, we then in November with above-average  interest in the implementation of the kinetic design of the new Escape.

Ford Mondeo and S-Max and now with 240 hp 6 MT

Ford Mondeo 2011

Ford Mondeo 2011

If you have a nice 2-liter turbo with 240 hp block develops, then you obviously do not get greedy and only run in a Focus ST stop. No, Ford should just give, and therefore, also benefit the Mondeo and S-Max has a year to downsize the block, albeit with a soggy automatic. Soon, you can own stirring with 240 hp.

Both cars are coupled to a six-speed manual. The power remains the same 240 horsepower. This will accelerate the Mondeo in 7.3 seconds for the 100. The S-Max encounter little resistance emerges and 0.3 second later the three digits. At top speed to keep your Mondeo M5/E63/RS6 when, as he capped at 250 km / h. The S-Max sticks to 240 km / h before seen. Give your little less lavish but gas is possible CO2 emissions of respectively 176 g / km and 188 g / km.


Ford himself put the new Mondeo is just opposite the famous ST220, which was equipped with a big 3.0 V6 (226 hp). Despite the loss of 2 cylinders and 1000 cc has now marginally more horsepower, and also lowers the CO2 emissions substantially good, from 249 gr to 176 gr. They must be, because with each additional gram increasing price yourself out of the market.

Nevertheless, like the engines still have a sip, consumption in the city is respectively 10.4 and 11.2 liters. Fortunately, there is the great savior outside consumption and, thus, the combined figures of 7.6 and 8.1 liters. Because we drive after all, always neat in his 110 6.

The new (temporary?) Topmotorisering will from mid-October produced, and has since prices of € 41.995, – (Ford Mondeo 2.0 EcoBoost S Edition sedan or hatchback) and € 47.916, – (Ford S-MAX 2.0 EcoBoost S Edition) . Mondeo would make it here, or maybe we get an even hotter version?
