Ford Focus ST

American carmaker Ford has finally revealed the price for its Focus ST on the UK market. The model will arrive in British dealerships at the end of this week and it seems that the starting price is GBP21.995 for the hatchback version. The estate will be sold starting with GBP23.095. Sales will start this week and the first deliveries will begin in September. Under the hood it features a 2.0-liter turbocharged all-alloy, 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine capable of developing 250 PS. The fuel consumption indicates 39.2 mpg and the CO2 emissions are 169g/km. This actually means a 20% improvement in comparison with old Ford Focus ST. All the output is being transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The carmaker offers different other elements that increase the performance. Some of them are the Torque Vectoring Control, Torque Steer Compensation and also an Electric Stability Program available with three modes. To handle the power the carmaker offers unique tuned suspension and performance brakes. Additional sport styling options will be added including red brake calipers, illuminated scuff plates and rado-grey alloy wheels. We will have the opportunity to see the new car in British TV movie The Sweeney. This action movie will coincide with the debut of the car. Ford is offering the model both hatchback and estate versions underlining the fact that it needs no compromise when it comes to performance or style. In the same time the driver and passengers feel comfortable and safe. The new model features Bluetooth, Recaro seats, DAB radio, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry and it transfers the power to the rod through a set of 18-inch alloy wheels. The new version of Ford Focus ST will be sold in 40 countries, starting this year, so get ready!
