A month ago Ford presented a revamped Ford Focus, however Blue Oval doesn’t prepare to quit keeping that. First spy pictures of 2020 Ford Focus ST are a testimony that Detroit-based firm has huge plans for this model. So, all you speed up fans must be thrilled that a brand-new flashy Focus variation is on the way, right? New, 2020 Focus ST was spied at Nurburgring track and the roadways that border it. The ST version will look quite much like the normal car in terms of design, however mechanical parts will certainly be a different tale.
2020 Ford Focus Engine and Specs
Under the hood, a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 will probably change the 2.0-liter turbo-4 readily available on the existing ST. The brand-new system will certainly have the ability to generate near to 275 horsepower. Just for comparison the present version loads ‘only’ 252 hp. This amount of power means that we will certainly be looking at an improved turbocharging system.
The changes will certainly continue with a new eight-speed transmission which will be an optional attribute. At the moment just readily available gearbox is a six-speed manual. It was unexpected that this model had only manual transmission, but that’s around to alter. Just what we anticipate to stay the exact same is the front-wheel-drive which will certainly continue to be the only choice.
Platform and interior
2020 Ford Focus ST will certainly be underpinned by firm’s next-gen modular platform planned for tiny cars. The lately launched standard variation comes with upgraded torsional strength thanks to the new chassis and suspensions design. The distinction in stiffness in between brand-new and old Focus is 20%, and the new setup will certainly move ride and managing capabilities of ST to the next level.
New Focus comes geared up with Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Suite which teems with electronic chauffeur aids. It additionally gets a new shade touchscreen which is mounted on top of the control panel. The 2020 Ford Focus ST will certainly have added tools such as Recaro seats, ST badges around the cabin, and probably brings couple of performance choices, and driving settings.
Release date and price of 2020 Ford Focus
The new generation of Focus will certainly strike the dealers later this year after it was showcased a few months ago. However, all you performance fans will have to wait practically a full year before ST variation concerns the marketplaces. As the screenings of mechanical parts are only in onset, 2020 ST Focus won’t be out before 2019. Unlike the basic car which will certainly be marketed as 2019 MY, its performance variation will probably be sold as 2020 MY. Look at summer of next year for its release.
After the ST variation Blue Oval will most likely start work with RS model, but also for that, we’ll need to wait beyond 2019.
There’s no word on the price as of yet, however it will exceed the price of the typical variation, as we are accustomed. The price of the ongoing car stars from $18,825 for the base version, and all as much as $25,145 for completely filled Focus. The ongoing ST is valued at $26,000 which is much above the normal variation. Same can be expected from a new design which will have a price closer to $27,000.
