Like for real. Like really real. Jake Lingeman, editor of Autoweek, tweeted this morning that it is coming to the US market. I guess he had a little heart to heart with Ford's Mark Fields and got the scoop at the Ford Year End Event.
I don't think I have been this excited in a minute. Finally the USDM will get one of the European Market's proper hot hatches. Rumor has it that the RS will be AWD. I will say again AWD, for some of you, you don't know what that means... Let me explain. All of the wheels on the car will drive. It is this new thing. Pretty D's if you ask me.
The power plant for the US-version RS is under development but it is likely going to be some variant off of the Mustang Ecoboost motor. Exciting times. Lets see when/if this is really real. I would be pumped.
Thoughts, concerns, fits of joy? Add them just below.

FWD hot hatch takes on RWD sports coupe.
ByJoseph Capparella, Nov 26, 2014
For enthusiasts on a budget, the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST makes an excellent choice. So does the Scion FR-S. The Fiesta ST and the FR-S both earned All-Stars nods in 2014, and both can be had for less than $26,000. With the recent arrival of a Scion FR-S at our office, we took the Fiesta ST and the FR-S on some of our favorite back roads to find out if one could bring a smile to our face more than the other.
Even though they’re comparably priced, these two cars sit at opposite ends of the performance spectrum. While the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST is a turbocharged, front-drive, four-door hatchback, the 2014 Scion FR-S is a naturally aspirated, rear-drive, two-door sports coupe. The Scion was designed from the outset to be a purebred, purpose-built sports car, while the Fiesta ST is an economy hatchback sharpened into a zesty corner-carving tool
As soon as you sit in the Scion FR-S, it’s immediately obvious that you’re in a real driver’s car. The relationship of the pedals, the steering wheel, and the driver’s seat is just about perfect. You can tell that the FR-S was designed by someone with a passion for driving, making it easy to connect with the car from the get-go.
The Fiesta ST, on the other hand, doesn’t feel nearly as intuitive. We never really found a comfortable driving position in the awkwardly high seats, and the pedal box is oddly arranged. Even the intense bolstering of the aggressive Recaro seats can’t mask the feeling that you’re sitting in a pedestrian subcompact with some extra performance bits tacked on.
On the road, the predictability and communicative nature of the FR-S mean that it never takes you by surprise. The Scion always tells you what it’s doing through the steering rack, making for a rewarding... [Read More]

If you know your fast Fords well, you surely remember the 1963 Cortina enhanced by Lotus and the early 1970s Kent-engined Escort Mexico.
Those two were the building blocks for the Blue Oval's current crop of ST and RS hot hatchbacks.
That being said, let’s start this review with a spoiler alert: the Fiesta ST is as bonkers as it's usable on a daily basis.
Don't think for a single moment that this little bugger is so extreme it'd be a headache to drive to the shops and back home.
It's an effervescent, living thing that will plaster a big grin on your face, even if you're not in the best mood for its tiny turbocharged insanity.
When looked at from six feet away, the Euro-spec Ford Fiesta ST looks pretty similar to its humdrum cousin with the 100 horsepower 1.0 three-cylinder EcoBoost engine.
It's got two doors and the same headlight and taillight design cues as the run-of-the-mill Fiesta, but that's where the visual similarities end.
The face has a hell of a lot of pragmatism to it with its suckerfish aesthetics and the black-painted honeycomb mesh grille.
Whereas the normal Fiesta has been criticized to look too much like a miniature Aston Martin, that can't be said about the Fiesta ST and the sharp, wide trapezoidal grille adorning its front fascia.
The ST's front bumper has been pumped with some steroids as well, making it look taught and muscular, while the fog lights are tastefully integrated in their angular black surrounds.
Looking at it from the side profile, you'll see a pair of big doors, which offer easy access into the cabin for the driver and its passenger, but aren't that great in crowded parking lots.
Even so, the XXL-sized doors are eclipsed by athletic wheel arches which house a quartet of 265/40 R17 BF Goodrich g-Grip tires.
“The visual drama continues round the rear, which is sportified by a twin exhaust setup and a ST-licious spoiler glued on the hatch”
This is a purely subjective opinion, but... [Read More]
