Ford Unveils Special Editions for The Upcoming 2016 Season
Ford's well-known small car range will enter the 2016 season with numerous additions: gadgets, colors and tweaks. For example, Ford Fiesta and B-MAX will join Ka with Black, White and other options via the Color Edition lineup that will further boost the personalization options. So, let's check out what is going on here.
Fiesta Zetec Black and Fiesta White Editions
The latest Fiesta editions come with Frozen White and Panther Black exterior finish with contrasting roofs and wing mirrors. In fact, these are limited edition vehicles and also offer 15-inch black painted alloys with black inserts, accompanied by rear privacy glass and power-folding door mirrors with puddle lights.
In terms of performance, the limited editions will impress even the most skeptical minds: the vehicles will be geared with either the 1.0-liter EcoBoost unit with 100hp (73kW) or the 1.25-liter Duratec with 82hp (60kW) of total output for both three- and five-door variants.
The cabin has also undergone some minor changes and improvements. It comes with special black-colored gear knob with contrasting white stitching, leather-covered steering wheel also with white stitching and white inserts.
B-MAX Zetec Color Edition
From next year the B-MAX lineup will include fresh members with the introduction of the Zetec-based Color Editions that feature black painted contrast roof and door mirrors, sporty styling details and of course, the exclusive and special 1.0-liter EcoBoost power unit that provides a total of 140hp (102kW). In fact, this unit is for the first time available beyond Fiesta Zetec S model.
As we talk about engines, we should also mention that there is a choice of three powertrains for this model lineup: the 1.0-liter Ecoboost with 140hp (102kW), the 1.4-liter 90hp (66kW) and the special 1.6-liter 105hp (77kW) PowerShift unit.
Additional goodies include black-painted front grille and body color rear spoiler, exclusive 16-inch black alloys, rear privacy glass and black aerofoil and rear diffuser.
Focus Zetec S Red and Black Editions
The latest Focus Zetec S Red Edition comes with Race Red exterior and special contrasting Panther Black roof, black mirror caps and black grille surround. On the other hand, the S Black Edition comes with just the opposite combination of color scheme with Panther Black exterior, Race Red roof, red mirror caps and red grille surround. Sweet, right?
This color scheme is carried throughout the interior: it offers black painted centre console, black leather sports steering wheel and gear lever gaiter with red stitching, black leather handbrake lever and gaiter with red stitching.
Both sweeties proudly demonstrate exclusive Panther Black 18-inch alloy wheels, black grille and Race Red diffuser components. But as we all know, the sporty spirit is not only held within the looks and style of the models. The beauties also offer impressive drivetrain system.
Both models include special sporty suspension with fine-tuned front and rear springs, tuned shock absorbers and front anti-roll bar for front-end grip and turn-in flexibility.
These are five-door only models that benefit from either the 1.5-liter EcoBoost 182hp (133kW) petrol unit or a 2.0-liter Duratorq TDCi 150hp (110kW) diesel unit. Both drivetrain units come with a six-speed manual gearbox.
