    What to expect from the 2017 Ford Focus ST

    What to expect from the 2017 Ford Focus ST - Rolling Out

    Looks like there are some errors in this article. 41 MPG? Diesel option? Chrome grille? 6.5sec 0-60mph? Maybe the author accidently cut and pasted some focus SE specs.

    I would trade in for the diesel... the diesel should get 41MPG and will likely be a slow 6.5sec to 60 car

    The diesel already exists in Europe, we will never get it here and actually is like 8 seconds 0-60. 6.5 for the gas ST sounds right though.

    I am aware... but I want to burn coal! I would assume it will never come state side but hopeful!

    I was under the impression that the ST could do a 0-60 in the high 5's. My old Audi 3.0L Quattro claimed low 7's I think; my new ST feels WAY faster. I have no Quantitative though.

    With the right driver, 5.9ish, but 6.5 is the official number from Ford.

    Ford states 6.2. With Mountune or FRPP it is supposedly 5.8.

    The sleek dashboard will reportedly boast a "new state-of-the-art paddle shifter system"? Does this mean an available dual clutch transmission for the ST, or did I miss that it's already offered?

    No, that's the first I've heard of any kind of automatic in an ST. This article seems a little slipshod, I think the author may have gotten some of the Focus models mixed up.

    Yeah, that's probably what it is. It would likely be a money maker for Ford, to offer all Focus models with a high quality, performance paddle shifter, for people who never learned how to shift and those who just don't like shifting. Hopefully Ford would also do any transmission upgrading necessary to insure reliability with the extra h/p and torque of the ST.

    P.S. Just never stop offering manual transmissions!
