All-new Ford Focus ST blends track-day performance
Ford Performance-developed all-new Focus ST enhanced with advanced sports technologies will "overwhelm" all fans from next summer.
The all-new Focus ST builds on the class-leading driving dynamics of the fourth generation Focus enhanced with unique suspension, braking and powertrain configurations for the most responsive and agile Focus ST driving experience ever – on road and track.
A new engine line-up makes Ford’s 280 PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol and 190 PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue Diesel available to drivers up to 12 per cent more power and 17 per cent more torque compared with the previous generation Focus ST.
Ford’s first application of an electronic limited-slip differential for a front-wheel drive vehicle further enhances as standard the cornering and stability.
A choice of six-speed manual or quick-shifting new seven-speed automatic transmissions is offered, and Selectable Drive Modes technology is introduced to the Focus ST for the first time, enabling drivers to adjust the vehicle’s character to suit the driving scenario. Continuously Controlled Damping – standard for five-door EcoBoost variants – enhances the short long arm independent rear suspension configuration for ultimate refinement.
The all-new Focus ST will go on sale across Europe in summer 2019.
