DEARBORN, Michigan — The Ford Fiesta ST Concept unveiled ahead of the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show previews a future high-performance Fiesta, said the Dearborn automaker on Thursday.

"The Fiesta ST Concept shows in the most dramatic way possible that the qualities that define an ST are not limited to one model," said Jost Capito. Ford director of global performance vehicles, referring to the Ford Focus ST.

Ford said in a statement that the concept car "hints at how a future Fiesta ST model might look when it joins the Focus ST in the global small car portfolio."

The Fiesta ST Concept is equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine that delivers 180 horsepower. The engine is linked to a six-speed manual transmission.

The Fiesta ST Concept's silhouette is inspired by the Fiesta RS WRC. Details include a trapezoidal grille with a honeycomb mesh design, a lowered stance, 17-inch alloy wheels and an ST body kit.

Edmunds.com says: Ford's ST strategy takes a major leap forward with the Fiesta ST Concept.
