Special edition Ken Block Ford Fiesta under discussion

Ken Block

FoMoCo is hoping that Ken Block and his Monster World Rally Team Ford Fiesta strikes a cord with young shoppers that love motorsports, in turn increasing sales of the new subcompact model. That may make you wonder why Ford doesn’t just do a special-edition Ken Block Fiesta and put it in the showrooms.

Well, that’s something KROQ Radio were wondering too. In a recent interview with Block, KROQ asked Block if “we are going to see a Ken Block edition?” …”are we going to see like enhancement parts and aftermarket stuff that they”re going to offer? Or are we going to see a Ken Block version or a DC car that you can actually buy?”

Block answered: “We”re discussing those types of things but there”s nothing set in stone at this point.”

We’re guessing they are waiting until SVT gets its hands on the Fiesta first.
