Ford Fiesta Dominates X Games Rally Again

Well all I've gotta say is DAMN, Ford launches the Fiesta and it sweeps consecutive X Games rally. Thats impressive. Who all thinks that its time for Chevy to step up into the world of Rally racing? I mean if ford can take down the top Evo's and STI's why cant Chevy, on top of putting its place back in racing where it belongs?

Funny thing is that the aveo exterior dimensions actually just about match the fiesta, wheelbases are just off by .4 inches full lenth is off by 4 inches, width is .7 inches but the aveo is heavier by a few hundred pounds

Believe it or not the Fiesta is fwd. But a turbo on a Aveo that would be crazy.

Apparently since they launched the new fusion with awd they plan on putting awd in the fiesta if it takes off well from its pop culture hype.

The new Fiesta is pretty awesome, but why the heck did they bring that name back? It's not like resurrecting a name like Camaro or something. The old Fiesta sucked. They should have gone with a new name IMHO.
