New Ford Focus ST Unveiled With Faster EcoBoost Engine

The new Ford Focus ST was unveiled today two weeks before it’s set to officially launch at the Geneva Auto Show.

The redesigned Ford Focus ST features a new EcoBoost engine that replaces the outgoing 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The new 2.3-liter mill develops 276 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque which is quite a bit more power than the previous engine.

You’re basically getting the same EcoBoost engine found on the Ford Mustang and Ford Ranger with a few tweaks.

The Focus ST is currently only planned for Europe which means there’s also a 2.0-liter, EcoBlue diesel engine on the menu with 187 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

Back to the gas engine, it features an anti-lag system which keeps the throttle open just enough when not in use to ensure quick reactions and cut down on lag time.

To make us want the Ford Focus ST even more, it will be offered with a six-speed manual with rev-matching out of the gate. An electronic limited-slip differential is available for the first time ever on an ST model as well.

In other words, the new Focus ST combines a limited slip and an anti-lag system together to probably remove any of the annoyances the previous-generation ST had.

Other features include available 18- and 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, Continuously Controlled Damping combined with a more rigid suspension, and larger, more effective brakes.

Various driving modes including Track, Wet, Normal and Sport will be included when you opt for the available Performance Pack.

There’s more to say about the new Ford Focus ST, but what really matters to consumers over here is whether or not we’ll be able to buy it. For now, things are not looking good.
