The new Ford Focus ST prices have been revealed starting at £22,195 ahead of first deliveries in February next year. Both a petrol and a diesel engine will be available in the hatchback and estate ST guises.
The new diesel engine will be a 2.0 litre TDCi pushing out 183bhp from the front wheels and only emitting 110g/km means it may be the choice for people who want a fast Ford but not an expensive one. Don’t worry it won’t be the exactly the same as the diesel engine in the rest of the Focus range. This particular engine has been fettled with to give it a 23 percent increase in power. The purist in us will want to go with the less frugal yet more powerful 2.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine with 247 bhp and emitting 159g/km, down 10g/km from previous model.
All models come with the choice of the ST-1, ST-2 and ST-3 styling upgrades which include ‘Rock Metallic’ alloys with red callipers, illuminated scuff plates, privacy glass and SYNC 2 8-inch touch-screen in the ST-3.
This new model has a sportier and more aggressive styling pack giving it a wider and lower stance. A new exterior paint colour is available with the ST-3 upgrade called ‘Stealth’ as well as ‘Deep impact Blue’, which is available across the whole range.
