2015 Ford Fiesta SE Sedan With ST Powertrain Up For Auction

Though it remains popular among enthusiasts, the Ford Fiesta will soon be discontinued after decades in production as The Blue Oval continue to electrify its European lineup. It’s a disappointing development for those that appreciate a good hot hatch, as the ST has always been one of the very best on the market. However, for those interested in a hot sedan, this 2015 Ford Fiesta SE up for grabs at Cars and Bids is essentially the next best thing.

We’ve certainly seen our fair share of FoMoCo vehicles with engine swaps over the years, but this 2015 Ford Fiesta SE might just take the cake, because it’s something The Blue Oval never made nor sold – a sedan version of the ST, which has been treated to a full drivetrain swap from that high-performance model, along with a handful of upgrades, to boot.

The bulk of that work involved installing the ST’s turbocharged Ford 1.6L I-4 EcoBoost engine in this particular Fiesta, which was originally rated to produce 197 horsepower and 202 pound-feet of torque. This one should make a bit more, however, thanks to a resonator and muffler delete and a Cobb Stage 1 tune, while a six-speed manual transmission ups the fun quotient considerably.

If all of that isn’t enough, the previous owner also swapped over the struts/shocks, brakes, hub assemblies, rear axle, alternator, fuel pump, wiring harnesses, and exterior badging from a donor 2017 Fiesta ST. Inside the cabin, this sedan also features that same car’s dashboard, gauge cluster, odometer, SYNC infotainment system, HVAC controls, seats, pedals, shifter, center console, door panels, and speakers.

If nothing else, this home-built Fiesta ST sedan is as close as one can get to an OEM example of the same ilk, which obviously doesn’t exist. It also appears to be a rather high-quality build, meaning that it’s ready for someone to drive and enjoy for years to come – as well as turn more than a few heads at the local cars and coffee.

    This is a cool car. That´s why Ford cancelled the Fiesta. Let´s hope they don´t cancel the Mustang. If it`s a boring cookie cutter SUV or crossover, Ford will produce it. If it´s a cool automobile for enthusiasts, Ford will not produce it.
