They'll will be joined by Ken Block and his Hoonigan team who'll be racing a Fiesta ST in a new blue livery
. Jointly developed by Ford's Team RS in Europe and SVT in the US, the Fiesta ST packs a 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbo four with an output of 197 horsepower and 214 lb-ft of torque. This small but powerful engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission that helps the car deliver up to 34 mpg. In order to handle the heavy doses of power in a fairly small car, Ford fitted the Fiesta ST with 17-inch wheels and calibrated the steering to be more direct and responsive than the base model. Specs of the GRC model are expected to be announced when it debuts at Chicago this week.
