2015 Ford Focus STJune 28th, 2014
Ford has debuted the updated 2015 Focus ST at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The new Focus ST features a number of refinements over the previous model, highlighted by a subtly more sporty front and rear fascia and LED signature lighting.
Other upgrades include standard 18-inch Rado Gray alloy wheels, and standard HID headlamps when choosing the ST2 and ST3 trim levels with Recaro seats. red-painted brake calipers are also available, and Ford is also offering Satin Black and High Gloss Red race striping with matching mirror skull caps for those wanting a more dramatic look.
Inside, the new Focus ST has had updates to its instrument panel center stack including better climate controls and upgraded finishes. We also like how they’ve gone with a flat-bottomed steering wheel, which not only provides better clearance, but looks much more sporty. Also standard now is a rear-view camera, and options are now available for an eight-way power driver’s seat and heated steering wheel.
Powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine with 252 horsepower, Ford hasn’t changed anything substantive in terms of the Focus ST’s drivetrain, though they say the car has had its tuning updated to improve handling and provide a more responsive and balanced ride.
