Ford Fiesta Celebrates 35th Birthday

The European-born Ford Fiesta, which we happen to be just getting for the first time in this country, celebrates its 35 birthday and production marker of 15 million units this year.

To celebrate the Fiesta’s birthday, Ford has announced that they introduced two new colors for the Fiesta with some new exterior updates as well for the Fiesta Titanium. Those updates include new wheels, some chrome finishing to the grill and a woven headliner. Partial leather seats is a new option for the inside too.
