Ford Introduces Black Limited Edition and E85 Fuel Compatible Models of Fiesta
Ford Thailand announced it will unveil updates to its Fiesta offering, with E85 fuel compatible engines and a Black Limited edition, at the 37th Bangkok International Motor Show. The Show takes place at Impact Challenger, Muang Thong Thani from March 23 through April 3, 2016
The Black Limited edition of the stylish Fiesta comes in a sporty two-tone black and red, featuring red-edged grilles, black-painted alloy wheels, red side mirror covers, sporty fog lamp frames and sticker sets for roof and lift gate.
Additionally, Ford continues its commitment to delivering eco-friendly vehicles by improving the 2016 Fiesta's engine with gasohol E85 compatibility, providing more options for consumers who wish to use renewable and environmentally friendly energy at a lower price.
Fun and fuel efficient
The 2016 Ford Fiesta is equipped with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) as well as E85 flex fuel capability, and generates 112 horsepower and 140 Nm of torque. The Fiesta also features six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode, delivering significantly improved fuel efficiency.
