Press Kit Description
The all-new Focus ST – developed by Ford Performance – builds on the class-leading driving dynamics of the fourth generation Focus to deliver nimble hot-hatchback thrills in a stylish, comfortable and practical family car.
Available in five-door and wagon body styles, the all-new Focus ST engine line-up includes Ford’s 280 PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol and 190 PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines, offering up to 12 per cent more power and 17 per cent more torque compared with the previous generation Focus ST.
Further powertrain enhancements include Ford’s first application of an electronic limited-slip differential for a front-wheel drive vehicle, sharpening responses to changing grip levels and driver inputs using computer-controlled pre-emptive actuation.
Ford’s new C2 architecture is also enhanced with unique suspension and braking configurations for the most responsive and agile Focus ST driving experience ever – on road and track – supported by selectable Drive Modes.
