The All-New Ford Focus ST

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.

Comfort & Convenience

Smarter performance


This isn’t just the most powerful and most responsive Focus ST. It’s the smartest too. As soon as you get behind the wheel and settle into the RECARO Performance seats, you’ll be surrounded by a host of state-of-the-art technologies that help elevate every journey. A standard additional feature, FordPass Connect modem* delivers real-time traffic updates††, vehicle health alerts, and even enables you to lock and unlock your car remotely. Whilst a 675-watt, 10-speaker, B&O sound system ensures every song you listen to sounds exactly like the artist intended.
Driving Experience

Pure driving joy


This is the Focus like you’ve never seen it before. The All-New Focus ST has been precision engineered to be more powerful, more responsive and more fun to drive than ever. The 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol engine is expected to produce an impressive 420 Nm of torque and 280 PS of power. Alongside a 2.0-litre diesel expected to produce 400 Nm of torque and 190 PS of power. And a new, fine-tuned suspension enables you to truly connect with the road, delivering greater control and exhilarating driving dynamics.

Built to perform


Featuring a new, more powerful engine, sports-tuned ST suspension, and smarter, more connected technology. The All-New Focus ST is nearly here, and it’s been purpose built to deliver the ultimate Focus driving experience.

Responsive Power Delivery


A low-inertia variable geometry turbocharger; steel pistons for less expansion when hot; and an integrated intake system with innovative mirror-image porting for optimised combustion help to deliver a diesel powertrain that produces 10 per cent more power and more than twice as much torque as the 2.0 litre Duratec ST petrol engine in the first generation Focus ST.

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 per cent 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.

Delivering smoother, faster downshifts, the technology is accompanied by a shift indicator light, and uses the engine’s electronic control system to briefly “blip” the throttle as the driver engages a lower gear – matching the engine rotation speed to that of the gear that is being selected.

Rev-matching enables less-experienced performance drivers to benefit from the seamless, momentum-maintaining gearshifts delivered by the “heel-and-toe” driving technique, while also enabling experienced performance drivers to deactivate the system if they prefer.

Maximum control


For the first time, the All-New Focus ST features an Electronic Limited Slip Differential (only available on petrol engine). This advanced technology has been engineered to maximise traction and deliver improved performance and stability. The system continuously analyses your speed, cornering, and the road conditions, then automatically sends torque where it’s needed. This ensures the wheel with the most traction receives the most power to give you control and power when you’re changing lanes, on demanding road surfaces, or accelerating through corners on the track.

A new engine line-up makes 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 280 PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol and 190 PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines* both deliver a broad spread of power and torque across the rev-range, for fast-revving sports performance.

Ford’s first application of an electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD) for a front-wheel drive vehicle further enhances as standard the cornering and stability of the EcoBoost-powered variant – sharpening responses to changing grip levels and driver inputs using computer-controlled pre-emptive actuation.

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 (CCD) – standard for five-door EcoBoost variants – enhances the short long arm (SLA) independent rear suspension configuration for ultimate refinement.
