Ford of Europe has released a video of the upcoming Ford Focus ST being driven on a road. The new car features a four cylinder, 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine delivering 184kW of power and 360Nm of torque instead of the previous 2.5-litre, five cylinder engine.
The name ‘XR5’ is still said to be retained for the Australian model even though the new car only has four cylinders. Other keys changes include an entirely new body with pumped guards front and rear, new wheels and aggressive aerodynamic enhancements. There’s also a new Powershift twin-clutch automatic gearbox said to be on offer. On the road the new Focus looks a lot better than in images. Check it out below.
