The new Ford Focus ST 1
The Ford Focus ST is an example of something great for the future from Ford. The new version is said to be released next year. From the concept car which was displayed at the Paris Motor Show, there seems to no changes.
For the first time there will be an estate version available, something which has never previously been released for the Focus ST model. The prospect was described as irresistible from the company. This would mix everything what is great with the original Focus into the ST version, making it practical and sporty. There will be however no 3 door version of the car.
The same development team who worked on the Ford Focus RS is set to work on the ST.
Power and Performance
The whole point of the ST is to add more power compared to the average Ford Focus. You’ll get a 4 cylinder turbocharged 2.0L which is a change from the previous Ford Focus ST which was a five cylinder 2.5 Litre engine. It will be able to produce 247bhp and have an output of 265lb ft of torque. The Recaro front seats will help the drivers sync in to the speed when they accelerate.
Another emphasis on the new Ford Focus ST model is to give a sportier and more aggressive look to the car. There is an eye-catching front grille with a stylish body kit that includes some spectacular side skirts. The 18inch alloys give away the look of sportiness with the tyres around them being designed for style and optimising performance. Compared to the normal Ford Focus, this one will be 10mm lower, adding to the car’s performance and look too.
The car has been designed to deliver a fantastic driving experience whilst being economical. With the estate being made available too, Ford may be stepping into a market where there is plenty of potential is expand their horizons.
No prices have been confirmed for the Ford Focus ST yet. It’s expected to go on sale throughout the world, with Ford having high hopes.
