Congrats goes out to Zerocoolxx for winning the name some things you would like to see on the 2016 Ford Focus ST contest! Here's what he thought the next generation Focus ST should have:

1. Lets face it, they want to compete with the GolfR/STI/EVO... then they need to go with an AWD system. It would be huge for traction purposes and to smooth out the tail happy beast.

2. Larger break kit options, from Brembo/Wilwood. I would look at it more like a track package, above what ever package scheme Ford may have. The rear breaks needs a beefier set of discs and calipers to look like they fit in the wheels better.

3. Actual turn-in headlights. They would not cost a huge amount more, and are far more functional then the current "turn-in" yellowish light bulb. This would also allow for a different headlight design that might look less clustered, and more refined.

4. A standard upgraded FMIC. Considering everyone here has found that the stock FMIC is ok for general putt-putt use, head soak (especially in hot climates) seems to be a real issue.

5. Factory limited slip diff. Everyone in this category has one, and it would be beneficial for all track use and heavy road use.

Ford ST Products Surpassing Expectations

Ford is working to increase production of the performance-oriented Focus ST and Fiesta ST due to strong customer demand.

Focus ST boasts 15-day turn rate, faster than most Ford products.

Ford’s Focus ST and Fiesta ST performance-oriented hatchbacks are selling better than projected, leading the automaker to adjust production of the vehicles at their respective assembly plants.

“We were a little conservative on planning on both products, so we’re working to dial-up production,” Sarah Rock, Focus and Fiesta GT brand manager. “They currently are experiencing some of the highest turn rates in Ford showrooms.”

The Fiesta ST is built at Ford’s Cuautitlán, Mexico, plant, while the Focus ST is assembled in Wayne, MI. Rock says Ford is adjusting the mix to produce greater volumes of STs in relation to the base-model products, but doesn’t offer specifics.

Ford says both models are turning twice as fast as the base models. The Focus ST’s turn rate currently is 15 days, while the Fiesta ST has a 30-day turn rate.

The performance models account for about 8% of the Focus and Fiesta ST model mix, but that is expected to trend upward as production adjustments are made.

Focus deliveries, including the base model and ST version, were off 4.6% last year to 234,570 units, while Fiesta sales rocketed 25.1% to 71,073, according to WardsAuto data. Through July, Focus deliveries dove 6.9% to 138,680, while Fiesta was 8.4% behind last year’s tally to 42,626.

For decades, the so-called hot-hatch segment was dominated by the Volkswagen GTI, which posted an 18.4% dropoff in sales last year to 13,310 units. Through July, GTI deliveries jumped 9.0% to 8,498. The German automaker expects a boost from the recent introduction of an all-new model.

Rock says the performance cars are drawing new customers to Ford showrooms, many of which are trading in import models.

“ST products are seeing conquest rates higher than other Ford nameplates,” she says. “They have a 65%-70% conquest... [Read More]

[Contest Time] Who Likes Free Stuff?! Sony Action Cam Up For Grabs

Aug 27, 2014 - 3:05 PM - by NickJ

All of this talk of the 2016 Focus RS got us thinking about the Future and what it will hold for the Focus Line and Specifically the Focus ST. Then we thought that it would be good to let you guys and gals help us think about what the new Focus ST could and should look like.

In order to enter for your chance to win your very own Sony Action Cam with GPS all you have to do is reply to this thread with a minimum of 3 (5 MAX) things that you would like to see on the 2016 Focus ST. Post those 3 things and elaborate on those things.

I am not looking for a quick list:

Okay now give me stuff.
If you want to win awesome things, give me awesome, developed thoughts and ideas!

Photo-chops, diagrams, things scrawled on napkins are highly encouraged.

The contest will close on Monday Sept 8 at 12:00 PM CST and we will select the winner to be announced that afternoon.

The Focus RS Might Storm the Beaches of the US in 2016

Just as the Beatles made landfall from the UK in the 60's the late teens could see another European invasion, but instead of screaming pubescent girls, the all new Focus RS will make all of the tires in the US worried that they will be fitted and then shortly thereafter burned off of the latest AWD monster that is the Focus RS. That's right... AWD! The boffins at Ford have ditched the old drive system in favor for a completely new AWD system for the RS.

The "old" RS, you know the one that we just get to look at from across the pond, had an inline 5 pushing a very respectable 305 horses out to the front wheels. In order to keep all of that power from jerking the steering wheel out of your hands and putting you directly into the nearest wall, embankment, or telephone pole, the power was fed through a thing that Ford called "RevoKnuckle." (Obviously I think of this guy when I see that name.). The "new" RS will be sent along the road at a rather quick pace with the 2.3L EcoBoost 4 that is making an appearance in the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost and the power, of which we can only speculate at below, will be sent through that new AWD system.

The power... We can assume that the RS will make more power than the ST (a gibbon {yes I know that is supposed to be given, but gibbons are funny}), and it would make sense to have it make more power than the Mustang, of which is slated to make 310 horse and 320 torques. If they use the same Honeywell twin-scroll turbo, we know that more power is possible because Tuning. Due to the news that the RS will make an appearance stateside in "EXTREMELY Limited" quantities, we don't have to worry about the government waving it's finger at Ford and making them hit ridiculous MPG requirements. Those are relegated to the "Full Line-up" of any... [Read More]

Consumer Reports most fun to drive list: Guess who made it?

Which cars lead to grin-inducing satisfaction

Fun to drive is a subjective measure—an elusive quality that can mean different things to different people. From our experience, a car can have a very powerful engine and accelerate quickly, but without handling agility, it's not much fun. For us, fun is a combination of factors such as handling response, sound, and the nature of the power delivery that lead to grin-inducing satisfaction. To come up with our list of the most fun cars to drive, we first took a slice according to our scores for handling, steering feel, and body control. Then we looked at acceleration, but found most cars today have plenty of power. Finally, we took a secret ballot to give our testers a chance to capture those elusive subjective qualities, including sounds. Below, we present our picks for the cars that are the most and least fun to drive.
