We already know about the rear spoiler which is what someone already had installed on their ST recently. Front and rear bumper covers disguising the front and rear, not! Other than it being a bit lowered(?) it looks the same.


The Focus ST is about as new as they come in the Ford model range, but it's still getting a facelift. Why? Because the rest of the Focus range dates back to 2010 (in Europe) and is getting a makeover, so the ST has to adopt a new family face.

We've spotted the Focus ST going round the Nurburgring recently, with only the front bumper camouflaged. Changes are really small though, mainly targeting the upper grille. This has been moved higher ever so slightly and has a slightly less pronounced design.

Do we like what we see? Maybe. The Focus ST has the face of a bottom-feeding fish and that appears to change with this facelift. A bit of chrome... [Read More]

DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 17, 2013

•More than 100,000 EcoBoost engines now produced every month, with a target of 1.2 million for 2013, up more than 60 percent from 2012. For the first time, EcoBoost production expected to exceed Ford's global diesel-engine production

•Customer demand exceeds projections globally with 90 percent of Escape buyers in North America and 95 percent of Kuga buyers in Asia choosing EcoBoost; in diesel-centric Europe, 39 percent of Focus customers opt for EcoBoost

•Ford doubled Cologne, Germany, production of 1.0-liter EcoBoost to 1,000 engines per day, and is investing $200 million to build 2.0-liter EcoBoost in the U.S.

•Ford data shows North American consumers aware of EcoBoost are more likely to buy Ford vehicles than those unfamiliar with the engine technology; EcoBoost awareness also raising opinion of Ford among European and Asian consumers

Ford Motor Company today celebrates a manufacturing milestone for its fuel-saving EcoBoost engines: Two million have been produced globally since the 2009 launch of the engine line.

Growing customer demand for EcoBoost-powered vehicles in major markets worldwide is driving engine production higher. Factory output now averages more than 100,000 engines per month, up from 65,000 in 2012.

"Ford EcoBoost delivers great performance with lower fuel bills, a recipe that is proving incredibly popular with consumers around the world," said Joe Bakaj, vice president, powertrain engineering for Ford. "EcoBoost engines are attracting new customers to the Ford brand every day, and our plants are working hard to keep up with demand."

A Ford Escape powered by the two millionth production EcoBoost – a 2.0-liter unit – rolled off the line at Ford's Louisville, Ky., last week.

EcoBoost technology combines smaller overall size with turbocharging, direct injection and variable valve timing to bring customers outstanding performance and fuel economy. Ford EcoBoost engines deliver up to 20 percent better fuel economy than... [Read More]

Greatest car of last 25 years? Bugatti? Aston Martin? Ferrari? Why the Ford Focus, of course - Telegraph

Not bad! Proud to have owned my 2001 ZX3 and stayed in the family with a 2013 ST. The Focus is such a fantastic car and glad to see it's getting the recognition it deserves.


It may have been a modest family hatchback but the Ford Focus has seen off some of the world’s greatest supercars to be voted the greatest car of the last 25 years.

Motoring fans put the first ever Focus at the top of a list of 50 vehicles which included a Bugatti, Aston Martin, Porsche and Ferrari.The humble Mini Cooper also made the top ten in a poll for the Auto Express magazine.

Campaigners last night welcome the fact a no-nonsense family car had been considered more important than super fast sports cars.The Ford Focus Mk1 was first introduced in 1998 effectively as a replacement for the ever popular Ford Escort, which had been built in various forms for 30 years.It rolled off the assembly lines for seven years before being upgraded and can now be bought second hand for as little as £500.But in a poll to mark the 25th anniversary of Auto Express, it was voted the best vehicle of the last quarter of a century.

Beaten rivals in the top ten included, in third, the 240mph McLaren F1 and the £830,000 Bugatti Veyron, whose super sport version is the fastest legal road car in the world, which could only manage seventh spot.

The Audi TT Mk1, Aston Martin DB9, Rover Mini Cooper and latest model of the VW Golf also made the list.Second place went to the Lancia Delta Integrale rally car.Jack Rix, news editor of magazine, said: “The Ford Focus has beaten a hot hatch with world rally championship-winning pedigree and the world's greatest supercar to
