Prepare for sport-tuned thrills in Seattle - with Ford soon to reveal the 2019 Focus ST. This hot-hatch (which should arrive in dealerships by the early fall) promises dynamic performance on the track and the highway alike, delivering a series of upgrades for the new year.
Are you ready?
According to Cheat Sheet, Ford has bolstered the 2019 Focus ST with enhanced performance capabilities. The suspension has been re-tuned, delivering a 20% torsional rigidity increase that will improve stability; while the chassis has been fused with a more fluid design language, emphasizing sleek fender flares and high-arched wheel wells (when combined these elements will effectively disperse air and promote aerodynamic cornering). Standardized drive-modes now define every mile as well. With the turn of a rotary dial riders can customize their power-bands with Sport (raises both torque and horsepower), Eco (decreases fuel consumption by engaging the AWD and lowering the redline), and Normal (no change).
Through these drive-modes, Focus fans can easily adapt to every terrain - pushing every rev to its maximum potential. Further enhancements include an available 2.0L EcoBlue diesel engine and a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
