2014 Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST Mountune

2014 Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST get hotter with Mountune upgrades

The 2014 Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST get even hotter as Ford offers a new Mountune upgrade for even more performance for the hot hatches.

The 2014 Ford Fiesta and Focus ST are the hottest hatches on the planet and they just got hotter. Ford has announced they will offer a Mountune upgrade that will increase performance even more and they can be installed in 90 minutes or less. That sounds like a great deal for performance enthusiasts. And the performance numbers are impressive for this new upgrade.

The packages are developed by race engine and road-car performance specialist Mountune and are offered as a factory install and covered by Ford warranty. The performance upgrade will only be available for the lucky folks in European markets and not here in the U.S. That’s too bad because this upgrade will boost performance and make the two hot hatches even better.

Ford says the Mountune Focus ST will get a power boost output from the Focus ST’s 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine to 275 PS, 10 PS more than from a Porsche Boxster. And it will sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in less than 6 seconds. That's impressive for the Mountune upgrade.

The Mountune Fiesta ST will get a power increase to 215 PS, enabling acceleration of 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.7 seconds, compared with 6.9 seconds on the factory model. That’s faster than a Mercedes-Benz SLK 200 AMG Sport 7G-Tronic Plus.
