Description

The Ford Focus ST MK3 was launched in 2011 as the performance derivative of the third generation of the C-Segment vehicle.

The Ford Focus ST development programme is being undertaken by Ford’s global Performance Vehicles group, which comprises Team RS (Europe) and SVT (USA) engineers. The car used a 2.0 liter EcoBoost four cylinder engine producing 250hp (184kw) and 360Nm of torque, thanks to the re-designed intake and exhaust systems and a unique engine calibration to deliver the desired level of power and responsiveness. The all-aluminium unit combines three technologies – high-pressure direct injection, low-inertia turbocharging and twin independent variable cam timing. The standard transmission for the Ford Focus ST is a 6-speed manual gearbox, optimised with more sporting ratios. Compared to the standard Focus, the ST model came with a stiffer body structure, chassis lowered by 10mm, a substantially different variable ratio steering system, high performance brakes, unique suspension tuning and the Torque Vectoring Control system.

On the outside the car featured a redesigned front and rear bumpers, an integrated roof spoiler, extended rocker panels and sporty allow wheels. Inside the car came with Recaro seats, unique instrumentation and unique finishes.

A facelifted version of the car was launched in 2014, using the same engine but with updated exterior and interior design.
