Ford has taken the wraps off the all-new Ford Focus ST, which will be offered in five-door and wagon versions. Sadly, just like the rest of the Focus lineup, it’s not coming to America.
The 2019 Focus ST is now powered by a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder, which is the same engine that powers the Mustang. The 2.3L engine generates 276 horsepower and 310 lb-ft. of torque, which is a nice improvement over the old 2.0L engine that had 252-hp and 270 lb-ft. If a diesel is more to your liking, then you’ll like that the Focus ST is also available with a 2.0L diesel engine with 187-hp and 295 lb-ft.
Just like before, all that power is sent to the front wheels, but buyers can choose either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission.
To keep you moving around the track, the Focus ST gets new anti-lag technology, an electronic limited-slip differential, Continuously Controlled Damping, rev matching, and selectable Sport and Track Modes.
The all-new Ford Focus ST will go on sale in Europe this summer.
