The all new sizzling Ford Focus ST - developed by Ford Performance - makes a wagon body style debut, giving customers yet another option to choose from.

17 May 2019 | International News : U.K.


Ford today revealed the first images of the all new Focus ST in wagon body style. The Focus ST - developed by Ford Performance - goes on sale in the summer in Europe powered by a free-revving 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with a choice of either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission.

0-100km/h is completed in less than 6 seconds flat
The new generation of Ford's 2.3-litre EcoBoost all-aluminium engine is the most powerful ever offered for a Focus ST. Using advanced turbocharging technology to deliver 280bhp power at 5,500rpm and 420Nm of torque from 3,000rpm to 4,000rpm, it is also the most free-revving Focus ST engine ever, and supports an century sprint timing in less than six seconds.

The Focus ST's six-speed manual transmission enables more urgent gear-changes and provides a sportier feel with a shift-throw reduction of 7% compared with the standard all new Focus. Ford's new rev-matching technology that debuted on the new Ford Mustang is also introduced as part of an optional Performance Pack for 2.3-litre EcoBoost manual models.

With the wagon body style, space is certainly an advantage over its hatch brethren
A new seven-speed variant of Ford's latest intelligent automatic transmission family complements the rewarding, engaging and sporty 2.3-litre EcoBoost driving experience. Gear differentiation is optimised for performance, and Adaptive Shift Scheduling - which assesses individual driving styles to optimise gearshift timings - is enhanced to offer more flexibility and the ability to differentiate between road and track use. Drivers can select gears manually using steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters.

On the inside, in addition to the sports steering wheel and Ebony coloured Recaro seats with a choice of high-quality cloth, leather, or partial leather and Miko Dinamica materials, the unique Focus ST interior intensifies the sporty atmosphere with an ST-embossed aluminium gear knob and scuff plates; alloy pedals; metallic hexagonal and satin silver decorative elements; and metal grey stitching for the seats, door inserts and centre console soft side pads.
