2019 Ford Focus ST: 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine confirmed?

We've seen reports the next-generation Ford Focus ST will get an adaptation of the 2.3-litre four-cylinder EcoBoost engine from the current Focus RS, and we've heard the industry chatter, but a picture posted on Facebook (above) by an eagle-eyed fan has all but confirmed it. Posted on a Ford Focus RS forum on the social media site, this image appears to come from a fourth-generation Focus ST, seemingly revealing it'll be powered by a 2.3L GTDI (gasoline turbo direct injection) engine.

2016-17 Focus RS recall coming for 'white smoke' issue

Ford Australia has confirmed it will reach out to owners of the Focus RS hot hatch for an engine fault that could see vehicles expel white exhaust smoke and consume excessive amounts of coolant. The issue was first reported last month, after owners in the UK complained their vehicles were misfiring and smoking from the exhaust when the engine was cold.

Volkswagen has announced that, effective June 1, Jost Capito will head up Volkswagen R GmbH, despite leaving his post as Volkswagen’s director of motorsport in August 2016 to take up the position of CEO of McLaren Racing just one month later.

The $52k question: Which car would each CarAdvice journo pick?

Celebrating 52 episodes of the CarAdvice podcast, this question was put to each writer on the team: if you had $52,000, what new car would you buy? You can catch their responses on this week's show, but if you can't get away with some listening time, we've listed each below. Skoda Octavia RS230 wagon: $43,190 It is a practical sleeper. I’d option it up with a couple of things, about $5000's worth, which comes in underneath the criteria, and I have enough left over for a party!
