2013 Ford Focus ST: We miss the crazy, mostly

It's cracking fast, it has big grip, but ...

By Josh Condon April 4, 2014

You have to give Ford credit for commitment. When the Blue Oval decided to add some crazy to the Focus five-door, it said, "What the hell," and dumped in the whole bottle.

That's a philosophy we stand behind without reserve. The resulting Focus ST, though, not as much. That's not a knock against this science experiment of a hot hatch; if the bulging racing seats, 252-hp turbo four, and Lamborghini paint job didn't already make it clear, this is a car with an unapologetic, take-it-or-leave-it personality. And that personality makes it special under specific circumstances but compromised everywhere else. The question is: Could we live with the trade-off?

Our staff seemed split. Those expecting a nimble, European-flavored hot hatch were smacked instead by substantial, five-door American muscle; 3242 lbs worth of shove and riot; and a loud, plasticky interior that's nice at first but ages like beer. Most agreed it was an overpowered, harsh, torque-steering handful around town. The optional Recaro seats didn't help—although grippy, they were almost unanimously loathed as overwrought, too heavily bolstered, uncomfortable, and ugly. Outside its element, the ST's flaws are somewhat glaring.

But then you get it on the track at Putnam or Road America or spend an afternoon whomping through Ohio's undulating Hocking Hills, and all is forgiven. Actually, when power-sapping heat soak isn't an issue—it was for us on two separate occasions—the car's flaws pretty much disappear. The same Focus that drove large and darty on the freeway suddenly shrinks around you, hunkering down at the limit. You... [Read More]

2014 Ford EcoBoost Challenge Rolls into 12 U.S. Cities Starting in April for Consumer Drives of Hottest Ford Products

• 2014 Ford EcoBoost® Challenge gives consumers across America a fun and free opportunity to drive the hottest new Ford products
• This year’s EcoBoost Challenge includes a host of vehicles from Ford’s fuel-efficient EcoBoost-powered lineup – the hot Focus ST and Fiesta ST models; closed-course competitor drives feature Escape, Fusion and F-150
• Most locations to provide sneak peek at highly anticipated Ford models, including the all-new F-150 and Mustang, and new EcoBoost-powered Ford Expedition. Interested consumers can sign up at ecoboostdrive.com

DEARBORN, Mich., March 27, 2014 – Ford Motor Company is giving fans, and potential customers, in 12 cities across America a chance to get behind the wheel of its latest products with its second EcoBoost® Challenge consumer drive tour.

Kicking off April 12 in Phoenix, the EcoBoost Challenge gets consumers behind the wheel of some of Ford’s most popular vehicles on three exciting closed-course tracks, including back-to-back drives with competitor vehicles. More than 28,000 people took part in last year’s EcoBoost Challenge for a fun and free chance to test drive Ford’s hottest new cars, truck and utility vehicles.

At most events, participants will get an early look at some of Ford’s most anticipated new models, including Mustang, F-150, Transit Connect Wagon and EcoBoost-powered Expedition.

At this year’s event, EcoBoost Challenge participants can compete against the clock in a Fiesta ST, and thrill to hot laps with a professional driver in the Focus ST – letting them see for themselves what all the glowing reviews are about. Hybrid fans will have an opportunity to put the C-MAX Hybrid through its paces against the competition.

“Whether it’s our EcoBoost or electrified products, there’s no better way to experience the quality, innovation and fun of the... [Read More]
