Ford Fiesta to offer less content for last model year in the US market
As the 2019 model year becomes the last of the Ford Fiesta in the U.S. market, the subcompact car is getting a few changes, starting with the deletion of the range-topping Titanium trim level from the 4-door Sedan and 5-door Hatch. In addition, the 5-door Hatch in the S trim level will now be available exclusively to fleet customers, not at retail level.
New features include a 12-volt rear outlet and Ambient Lighting option with the SE Appearance Package, while it cuts other content such as Aluminum Mini Spare Wheel, Charcoal Black Bolster with Red Seat Stitching and Driver Seat Adjustable Lumbar Support. Also, the Engine Block Heater is now an optional feature in cold weather States, rather than standard.
The rest of the 2019 Ford Fiesta – including mechanical elements, safety and security, exterior, and driver assist – remain identical to those of the 2018 model.
In recent days Ford Mexico officials confirmed that production work for the 2019 Fiesta will cease at the Cuautitlan assembly plant in August, followed by a retooling process for an electric vehicle.
