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

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!
