The New Ford Focus ST
Published Date: 8th Jun 2008
Created by Ford TeamRS, the company’s dedicated performance vehicle arm, the 2008 Ford Focus ST benefits from the new exterior and interior styling changes introduced across the rest of the Ford Focus line-up earlier this year. Importantly though, while offering new technologies and features, the car’s well-honed dynamics remain untouched.
At the heart of the matter is the familiar 225 PS, 2.5 litre turbocharged 5-cylinder Duratec engine. Powerful, and accompanied by a suitably sporty soundtrack, this powerhouse delivers a potential 150mph top speed in tandem with 0-62mph acceleration in just 6.8 seconds.
The Ford Focus ST has always provided lots of choice and the range retains its simple ST, ST-2 and ST-3 trim grades and three or five door hatchback bodystyles. Every Ford Focus ST boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, sports styling, body-hugging Recaro sports seats, a unique sports steering wheel and upgraded instrumentation. New to this generation of ST are the ‘Ford Power’ starter button and Easyfuel capless refuelling system.
In common with other members of the 2008 Ford Focus family, a range of high-tech options can be specified including a new audio connectivity module for devices like Bluetooth plus voice control and navigation systems.
Combining bold looks with a thrilling driving experience and numerous new features, Ford’s new and improved Focus ST is the definitive hot hatch.
