Ford has completed its new ST-Line model range in Ireland, featuring vehicles with sporty styling which the company says is inspired by Ford Performance and offering a range of powerful and efficient EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel powertrain options.
Joining the Fiesta and Focus ST-Line models that were launched in early 2017, new ST-Line versions of EcoSport, Mondeo, Kuga, S-MAX and Edge are now available from Ford Dealerships across the country.
Delivering bold exterior and interior designs inspired by Ford’s acclaimed ST performance models, the new ST-Line range is designed for customers who aspire to the sporty image of Ford’s ST models – but do not require the full performance delivered by optimised ST engines and chassis with sports technologies.
The ST-Line range is offered with a range of powerful engines including Ford’s multi-award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine; sport suspension and body styling; unique alloy wheel designs; and sport seats, sport steering wheel and alloy pedals for the interior.
Ciarán McMahon, is Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland.
“Our full ST-Line range makes it easier for even more customers to experience the sporty style and driving dynamics inspired by our most exciting Ford Performance line-up ever, that includes models such as the Focus RS, Fiesta ST200, Mustang and Ford GT supercar .
“With its sporty looks, extra powered engines and good value, the previously launched Fiesta and Focus ST-Line models have caught the eye of a wide swathe of Irish buyers and I am sure these latest ST-Line models will equally attract the attention of discerning buyers over the coming months,” he said.
The new Ford ST-Line models are available only with high-power engine derivatives that complement the enhanced driving dynamics delivered by sport suspension.
For example, the EcoSport ST-Line model boasts Ford’s award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine with higher power outputs of 125PS. For the Kuga ST-Line, diesel powertrains on offer include a 120PS 1.5 litre TDCi or a 2.0 litre 150PS and 180PS options.
“The ST-Line range offers customers a chance to enjoy the famous fun-to-drive characteristics and great looks of Ford’s performance models in an exciting and affordable package with a broad range of petrol and diesel engines,” concluded McMahon.
