Ford is taking the Focus to the next level in 2013 by adding a high-performance hatchback to the lineup. The Focus ST packs significantly more wallop than its SVT predecessor.
The Focus ST has a single trim level, Base, and features a 252-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The motor is matched to a six-speed manual transmission, and the hot hatchback can reach a monstrous top speed of 154 mph. It hits 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds. And despite its performance capabilities, the ST still manages to turn in fuel economy ratings of 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.
The Ford Focus ST comes in only one trim level – base – but with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 252 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque powering it, this is not your typical base mode . On the outside, the Focus ST comes standard with 12.6-inch rotors up front and 10.6-inch rotors on the rear for optimal stopping, 18-inch alloy wheels for superior performance and style, power mirrors with integrated turn signals for quick adjustment and added safety, and a unique ST grille and fog lamps to set it apart from of Focus models. Inside the Focus ST, you receive air conditioning to help keep the cabin comfortable, Intelligent Access with push-button start for easier entry and starting of the Focus, and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers and speed sensitive volume for a great listening experience.
