Focus ST will benefit from technology and craftsmanship first revealed earlier this year for the new Ford Focus – the world’s best-selling global nameplate.
The 2015 Ford Focus ST makes its global debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom â€“ the ideal venue for showcasing the enhanced driving dynamics of Fordâ€™s global performance version of the new Focus.
â€śSince its debut, Focus ST has been bringing our fun-to-drive DNA to the hot hatch segment with a uniquely Ford blend of driving dynamics, performance and style,â€ť said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. â€śNow, with improved dynamics, an updated suspension, new styling and a more sophisticated cabin, we expect the 2015 Focus ST will remain the hottest hatch worldwide.â€ť
Focus ST will benefit from technology and craftsmanship first revealed earlier this year for the new Ford Focus â€“ the worldâ€™s best-selling global nameplate. Ford introduced the first Focus ST in 2002; since then, more than 140,000 examples have been sold in more than 40 countries worldwide.
