2021 Ford Puma ST

The Puma ST Ford is everything you love about the Fiesta ST while adding a little bit of ground clearance. It borrows the turbocharged 1.5-liter, three-cylinder engine that can run only two lines thanks to cylinder deactivation technology to enhance fuel economy when full power is not needed. Speaking of power, the compact but powerful EcoBoost unit produces 197 hp and 320 Nm (236 lb ft) to mirrored the ultra-compact hot car. It's worth noting that you're getting that kind of torque in the Fiesta ST with the boost of speed. Otherwise, the three pots develop 290 Nm (214 lb ft) into the small hole


It borrows the same six-speed manual gearbox helping the Puma ST hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 6.7 seconds, thus making it 0.2s slower than the Fiesta due to the added weight. Top speed is also down, from 144 mph (232 km/h) to 137 mph (220 km/h)


Beyond the upgraded engine, there are several other improvements over a regular Puma. For example, the ST is available with an optional mechanical limited-slip differential, force-vectoring springs, and selectable drive models with an Eco mode available for the first time on a Ford Performance model. In addition, the rear suspension is 40 percent stiffer than that of the Fiesta ST and at the same time, 50 percent stiffer compared to the regular Puma. Front and rear anti-roll bars contribute to the crossover’s improved stability



Ford’s engineers have also tweaked the steering system making it nearly 25 percent quicker than the standard Puma and have enlarged the front brakes by 17 percent for extra stopping power. Special attention was given to the exhaust, a free-flowing setup with active valves to make the soundtrack more appealing. Interestingly, the exhaust is one-decibel quieter compared to the Fiesta ST's in order to provide “a more composed cruising experience


Then there are the visual upgrades, in line with those of the Fiesta ST. Ford installs 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires as standard equipment and offers customers the opportunity to pick from six different body colors, including this ST-exclusive Mean Green shade. Regardless of the main color, the roof, grille surround, side moldings, mirror caps and the rear spoiler come with a glossy black finish
