Ford Focus ST prototype will be tested

Yesterday was a rather big day for Ford as it entered one of its most important vehicles on the final stages of testing, the Focus ST. The carmaker announced that the model will be available starting next year and will be on sale in Europe and North America.
So far the company sent out 60 pre-production prototypes of the model and they will be tested on both continents. The lucky ones will have the possibility to see the model on the streets, as we said, very soon.
The new ST has a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that produces 250 PS. About the fuel consumption, well, apparently this car had improved in comparison with the last model in this direction.
Other changes planned for the 2012 Focus ST are the ones regarding the improvements of the steering and handling of the current version of the ST from Europe. The new car has a lower sitting position for the driver and plus it has extra supportive seats.
As it was expected, the price still remains a mystery for all of us.
