Yes, the Ford Focus ST is actually still around. Itís the hot hatchback we love but faded into the shadows after its little sibling, the Fiesta ST, kicked its ass in the fun-per-dollar argument. It then totally lost everyoneís attention when the almighty Focus RS arrived and decimated everything. Itís still damn good.

(Full disclosure: Ford Canada prepped me a Focus ST so I could drive it for a week. The car was delivered clean with a full tank of gas. Upon my return, I was told something to the effect that a Focus RS press car was lying around in their garage for ďspecial occasions.Ē*Iím sure we can find a way to arrange that, now can we?)

The sport-y-ish compact car segment is looking good these days with new entries like the Civic Si, Elantra Sport, Sentra Nismo, Golf GTI, and even the Subaru WRX. All of them offer new platforms, suspension tuning, and solid MPG. Does the ageing Focus ST still hold up?

Iím here to tell you that, yes, of course it does. Fordís hot hatch remains the no-brainer car for any enthusiast who also happens to be a parent wanting to retain his or her illusion of freedom, or just a normal human being who likes to do normal human being things.

What Is It?

For the longest time, we North Americans would look at Fordís European division and drool with envy as we watched Jeremy Clarkson hoon Sierra and Escort Cosworths on YouTube. Meanwhile, the only fast Ford we had to play with was the Mustang, or the Probe, but that thing was actually a Mazda, so it doesnít really count.

As far as compact cars went, the only thing Dearborn had to offer was a cheaply built ****box Escort that didnít have much in the way of power. Or any sort of performance cred, for that matter.

Hey, we had the Escort GT!

Sigh.

By the late í90s, Ford finally came to its senses by importing the Focus from Europe, a better built small car replacement to our lame Escort. Sadly, we were once again deprived of anything truly performance-focused and left... [Read More]

All-New Ford Fiesta ST Debuts With Itty Bitty Turbo 3-Cylinder Engine

Feb 24, 2017 - 9:32 AM - by AutoGuide.com


The next-generation model of the ridiculously fun Ford Fiesta ST has debuted with a new engine.

The 2018 Ford Fiesta ST will now be powered by an all-new 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder with about 200 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque. This engine replaces the 1.6L four-cylinder motor in the old ST, and, although it is smaller, output increases by a bit.

This is the first time Fordís three-cylinder motor has been used in a performance car, and it even has cylinder deactivation that will shut down one cylinder under light loads. The engine should help the hatch blast to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.7 seconds. As before, the Ford Fiesta ST will only be available with a six-speed manual.

The little hatch also gets three driving modes for the first time ó Normal, Sport and Track ó that change the engine response, throttle response, steering feel and response, stability control, and exhaust sound.

Ford Focus RS Wins AutoGuide.com 2017 Car of the Year Award

Dec 13, 2016 - 10:03 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Making their pick for the best new car this year, AutoGuide.comís team of automotive experts is excited to announce the Ford Focus RS is the recipient of the outletís 2017 Car of the Year Award.

'The Ford Focus RS is available in North America for the first time ever, and itís even better than we were expecting,' said AutoGuide Group Editorial Director Jonathan Yarkony. 'Its combination of hard-core performance in a practical package made it an undeniable choice for this yearís AutoGuide.com 2017 Car of the Year.

The Focus RS was pitted against some stiff competition, as AutoGuideís team of editors evaluated the very best new models this year during five intensive days of back-to-back testing in Southern California.

In the end, after falling in love with the Focus RSís drive, its impressive value sealed the deal.

Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance Chief Engineer, said: 'Itís an honor to receive this top prize from AutoGuide.com. The success of Focus RS throughout 2016 is testament to the entire Ford team who put all of their energy into creating such a special car to capture the heart of any driving enthusiast.'

The RS builds on what drivers liked about the Focus ST and makes it truly hardcore. The biggest upgrades to the rally-inspired racer are that all-wheel-drive system and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that provides an addictive 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. That engine is hooked up exclusively to a slick six-speed manual, and with power to all four wheels, drivers have maximum traction powering out of corners. On top
