What is the Ford ST & ST-Line?

What's the difference between Ford ST & ST-Line? Learn about the ST range of performance cars and the ST-Line trim levels of Ford cars at Pentagon Ford

  • Much like many other manufacturers have a special performance range of cars, Ford has ST. These variants build further on Ford’s penchant for making engaging, dynamic cars by pouring bundles of power and style into the mix.

    Explore below where we breakdown the differences between ST and ST-Line cars from Ford, including the current models available as ST and ST-Line, and take a dip into Ford RS.

  • So, what’s the difference between Ford ST & ST-Line?

    ST cars are models taken from the Ford lineup, like the Fiesta, with a specially-made engine, athletic touches of style and that sought-after ST badge. Only a couple of models from the lineup are available as ST.

    Whereas ST-Line is a trim level available on most cars in the lineup. With an ST-Line model, there’s no added engine power or special body touches, it’s just one of the levels of trim.

  • What does Ford ST stand for?

    ST Stands for “Sports Technologies”, a fitting name such exciting models. It’s the same abbreviation for ST-Line models, with the addition of ‘Line’ showing it’s a trim level rather than a separate model.

  • History of Ford ST

    Only a few models have been available as an ST over the years, starting with the Ford Mondeo ST24 back in 1997. This was the very beginning of the brand’s love for creating hot hatches and there have since been plenty of iterations.

    The MK2 Ford Focus ST was the next big thing for the range, with a 2.5-litre engine with 225hp. Ford’s Team RS made the MK2 Focus ST, which is one of the main reasons for its unrivalled drive at the time. The bright orange iteration is a fan-favourite, being instantly recognisable on the roads, even if you can’t see the ST badge!

  • Ford Focus RS MK2
  • The Fiesta ST has always been a fan favourite too, with its even more compact dimensions lending itself well to an exhilarating driving experience.

    The newest addition to the lineup is the new Ford Puma ST. It’s the first-ever crossover to be graced with the ST badge and, although it hasn’t been out for long, it’s been welcomed by enthusiasts with open arms.
