GOODWOOD, U.K, June 27, 2014 – The new Focus ST makes its global debut today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, U.K. – the ideal location to showcase the speed and enhanced driving dynamics of the global performance car.

The most advanced Focus ST yet offers new chassis control technologies, tuned suspension and steering, and bespoke tyre specification that ensure an even more responsive, balanced and refined driving experience. And for the first time, it will be offered with the choice of two powerful engines – one petrol and one diesel.

The first diesel Focus ST takes day-to-day usability and sportiness to a new level by delivering the most fuel-efficient and lowest CO2 Ford performance car ever; 185 PS 2.0-litre TDCi achieves 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.1 seconds, 4.4 l/100 km (64.2 mpg), and 114 g/km CO2.*

For customers who prefer petrol, the 250 PS 2.0-litre EcoBoost delivers 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.5 seconds, fuel efficiency of 6.8 l/100 km (41.5 mpg), and 158 g/km CO2. Both models offer Auto-Start-Stop for the first time that improves the EcoBoost version’s fuel efficiency by 6 per cent and help make it the most fuel-efficient petrol Focus ST ever.

“The new Focus ST delivers an even more sophisticated balance of performance, driving dynamics, refinement and style – the core of Ford’s Sports Technologies DNA,” said Joe Bakaj, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “Even more enjoyable and rewarding to drive and with the choice of diesel power for the first time, the new Focus ST is in a class of its own.”

The Focus ST also will benefit from technology and craftsmanship first revealed earlier this year for the new Ford Focus – the world’s best-selling global nameplate.** The sporty and aggressive new five-door and wagon models will offer class-leading driver assistance technologies and connectivity features including the SYNC 2 in-car connectivity system.

Ford has sold more than 140,000 Focus ST models in 40 countries worldwide since the car was first launched in 2002.

Enhanced driving dynamics

Ford Team RS, the award-winning European arm of Ford’s Global Performance Vehicle group, made improving the entire driving experience the number one objective for the new Focus ST.

The sports suspension features all-new front springs and sportier new shock absorber tuning front and rear. In combination with the model-specific anti-roll bars and rear springs from the previous generation ST, these enhancements deliver an even sharper dynamic performance.

The calibration of the Electronic Power Assisted Steering and electronic vehicle control systems also has been revised to meet the specific sporting requirements of the new Focus ST.

These changes deliver:

• A new Electronic Transitional Stability function in the advanced three-stage Electronic Stability Programme. This senses vehicle stability and driver inputs, intervening as required to maintain optimal precision and control during rapid changes of direction at speed – for example in a lane-change situation

• Revised Electronic Torque Vectoring Control settings that further optimise wheel torque distribution, maximising traction through corners and increasing agility

Power delivery refinement under hard acceleration – particularly front wheel traction and gear shift quality – is also assisted by engine mounts engineered specifically to accommodate the performance of the new Focus ST. Additionally, Ford worked with Michelin to develop a new 19-inch tyre that complements the driving dynamics, especially maximising lateral grip.

“Ford has long enjoyed a reputation for producing performance hatchbacks with superb driving dynamics and the new Focus ST more than lives up to that pedigree,” Bakaj added. “The engineering enhancements to the suspension, steering and electronic control systems deliver greater responsiveness, agility, precision and an exhilarating driving experience – whichever powertrain you choose.”

Power of choice

The new 185 PS 2.0-litre diesel engine that debuts in the new Focus ST has been optimised to deliver ST performance and character alongside fuel efficiency and everyday practicality.

The increased power output of the Focus ST 2.0-litre TDCi – a 23 per cent gain over the 150 PS 2.0-litre engine in the new Focus range – is achieved by electronic calibration, a revised air intake system and a new sports-tuned exhaust.

Peak power is developed at 3,500 rpm and there is 400 Nm of torque available from 2,000-2,750 rpm, enabling the new Focus ST diesel to achieve a maximum speed of 217 km/h (135 mph). The torque output enables impressive in-gear acceleration and strong performance at low rpm. In 6th gear, acceleration from 80-120 km/h (50-75 mph) takes just 9.7 seconds in sixth gear, the combination of a shorter ratio and the increased power enabling the Focus ST to outpace the 150 PS Focus by 2.2 seconds.

Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine uses turbocharging, Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing technology, and high-pressure direct-injection to deliver uncompromising performance. Peak power is available at 5,500 rpm, 360 Nm of torque is available from 2,000-4,500 rpm, and maximum speed is 248 km/h (154 mph).

Both engines use a six-speed manual transmission with a performance-oriented, short-throw shift. The gear ratios – exclusive to ST and matched individually to each engine – deliver rapid acceleration in lower gears and comfortable cruising at speed.

Powerful appearance

The new Focus ST features sportier and more aggressive styling than the previous generation, with a lower, wider stance; new dynamically sculpted bonnet; slimmer headlamps and rectangular foglamps.

The sports bodykit also includes body-coloured side skirts and diffuser elements either side of the exhaust, and a rear roof spoiler optimised for aerodynamic performance. All new Focus ST models feature twin-hexagonal centre tailpipes.

Black lamp bezels, ST badging and new 19-inch ST Design alloy wheels – that are available as an option – complete the look.

“Focus ST has proved very popular with Ford’s sporty customers and the new model takes that to an even more striking and dramatic level,” said Martin Smith, executive design director, Ford of Europe. “The signature honeycomb upper grille has been reproportioned, there are new rectangular fog lamps in the outer apertures, and the lower fascia offers a much sharper definition and profile. At the rear, the width of the car is emphasised by a new full-width graphic.”

A new dark grey exterior paint colour called Stealth is introduced exclusively to the Focus ST. Deep Impact Blue also is new to the range that includes Tangerine Scream, Frozen White, Panther Black and Race Red.

Cockpit-style cabin

Ford has redesigned the Focus interior for a more intuitive layout that also is simpler, with a clearer visual connection between the key components and significantly fewer buttons in the cabin.

An additional bank of three gauges – an ST hallmark – is situated on the instrument binnacle and displays turbocharger boost pressure, oil temperature and oil pressure information. A new, flat-base sports steering wheel with a soft-feel leather covered rim; a satin chrome-topped gear lever; and ST pedals deliver the interior that ST drivers expect.

Satin chrome door grab handles and illuminated aluminium scuff plates add extra touches of refinement, and sports seats developed jointly by Ford and Recaro provide the support required to fully enjoy the ST driving experience, and also are comfortable for every day driving.

The new Focus ST will be available in ST1, ST2 and ST3 trim levels. ST1 seats feature grey/charcoal/anthracite black fabric; ST2 adds partial leather with base and side bolsters available in four colours (Tangerine Scream; Performance Blue; Smoke Storm or Race Red); ST3 seats have a full charcoal black leather finish.

Advanced technologies

Driver assistance, convenience and connectivity technologies that will be introduced for the first time include the Ford SYNC 2 connectivity system. SYNC 2 offers access to audio, navigation, climate control and mobile phones using class-leading voice control and a high-definition, 8-inch colour touchscreen that displays the ST logo on start-up.

Adaptive Front Lighting, available for the first time on the Focus ST, adjusts the intensity and angle of the Bi-Xenon HID headlamp beams according to vehicle speed, steering angle and distance to objects to provide optimal illumination. Cross Traffic Alert also is a new addition for Focus ST, and warns drivers reversing from parking spaces if other vehicles are about to cross their path.

Ford’s enhanced Active City Stop collision avoidance system – now operative at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph) – readies the brakes if a potential impact is detected and – if the driver does not respond – will automatically apply the brakes. Lane Keeping Aid applies steering torque to guide the Focus ST back in to lane if drifting is detected.

Available to order in Europe from autumn 2014, the first new Focus ST models are scheduled to be in dealerships from early 2015. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

Debutto a Goodwood per la rinnovata Focus ST.

Sguardo meno da pesce lesso e più deciso grazie ai proiettori di nuovo disegno che già conosciamo; non pensavo potesse migliorare così (era quella che mi piaceva meno).

250cv per il 2.0 EcoBoost a benzina, 185cv per il diesel che per la prima volta equipaggia una ST; trattasi del 2.0 TDCi.

Mi piace l'idea, non mi piace la macchina, già gravemente tormentata nella versione civile, qui è pacchiana da morire. Le scelte tecniche non le discuto... :mrgreen: mi limito all'estetica...

Era da tempo che non provavo emozioni guardando una compatta sportiva.

Molto bella, diesel abbordabile ed economicamente gestibilissimo.

IMHO darà fastidio al gruppo delle grandi. Tra l'altro sarà anche meno eccessiva con una colorazione meno tamarra.

Il punto forte di questa auto rimangono sempre gli interni.

      Versione ST della futura Ford Puma, che sarà spinta dal 1.5 Ecoboost da 200 CV che già muove la Fiesta.

    • By Cole_90
      Ford Focus si aggiorna con un muso totalmente ridisegnato, adesso più aggressivo e personale, e nuovi fari posteriori.
      I fari sono Full LED e a richiesta spuntano i LED Dynamic Pixel caratterizzati da tre interessanti funzioni che si attivano grazie ad una telecamera posta sulla parte anteriore del veicolo: il già conosciuto Glare Free High Beam (anti riflesso), il Dynamic Bending che illumina i punti interni delle curve ed il Sign-based Light pensato per pedoni e ciclisti, che mediante il riflesso sui segnali stradali regola di conseguenza il fascio luminoso.
      Nuovi anche alcuni cerchioni (anche i 18'' e i 19'' della ST) e alcune nuances esterne, fra cui il Mean Green della ST.
      La variante Active, ad oggi presentata sulla Wagon, viene distinta ancora di più dalle altre Focus grazie ad una calandra con mesh studiata ad hoc per il modello.
      All'interno viene mantenuta l'impostazione classica della Focus fase 1 a cui vengono aggiunti uno schermo infotainment da 13.2'' (disponbile sugli allestimenti più ricchi) che porta al debutto sul modello il nuovo sistema operativo SYNC 4, con aggiornamenti OTA, sistemi di mirroring wireless per smartphones e il FordPass, un'app che permette di monitorare lo stato della vettura a distanza.
      Sul fronte dei motori, nessuna novità essendo stati aggiornati al Mild Hybrid da poco e pertanto vengono confermati i 1.0 EcoBoost da 125 e 155 cv che portano al debutto un nuovo automatico Powershift a 7 rapporti, il 2.3 EcoBoost da 280 cv della ST (manuale a 6 rapporti o automatico) e il superstite diesel 1.5 EcoBlue da 120 cv.
      Infine, aggiornati e potenziati gli ADAS, ormai immancabili.

      La divisione cinese Changan-Ford starebbe preparando un aggiornamento estetico dell’Explorer.
      Difficile dire ad oggi se verrà esteso ai nostri lidi o a quelli statunitensi.
