A new report is indicating the Fiesta ST will feature a 1.6-liter Ecoboost engine that develops 180 hp (134 kW / 182 PS).

New details are starting to emerge about the 2012 Ford Fiesta ST.

Designed to battle the latest crop of hot hatches, the model will feature an aggressive front fascia, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, and a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. Interior changes will likely be minor, but should include revised trim and Recaro sport seats.

Power will reportedly be provided by a 1.6-liter Ecoboost engine that develops 180 hp (134 kW / 182 PS). It will be paired to a six-speed manual transmission, but we wouldn't be surprised if a six-speed PowerShift automatic was optional (at least on U.S. models).

The Fiesta ST is slated to be launched sometime next year, so stay tuned for additional information.
