Insider: Ford to Reveal New Focus ST Paris Show Car this Week

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010

According to Carscoop sources, we won't have to wait until the grand opening of the Paris Motor Show on September 30 to catch our first glimpse of the next generation Focus ST as Ford will release photos and preliminary specs on the hot hatch before the end of the week. The almost production-ready show car is based on the new five-door Focus (the three door version has not yet been revealed).

Now here's what else we found out about the hot hatch: the outgoing Focus ST's Volvo-sourced 225HP 2.5-liter turbocharged five is replaced by Ford's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost unit, which is already available on the refreshed S-MAX and Galaxy MPVs with 203HP, as well as on the facelifted Mondeo with 203HP and 240HP.

Our source told us that on the new Focus ST, the tweaked four-cylinder unit will produce around 250 ponies. The car will also feature upgraded suspension, steering and brake system components, as well as bigger wheels and a unique bodykit.

The final production version of Ford's spicy hatch will be unwrapped next year and go on sale in Europe towards the end of 2011 or in early 2012. We still don't know when or if the ST will be offered in North America.

HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

no chance for the Cruze in hot hatch form if ford brings this. GTI killer.

Hate to say it, but unless the GTC Astra hatch makes it here then don't bother with the buick either.

i would love this car.

I hope it comes here. Chevy deserves a kick in the butt for that weak 1.4 liter Cruze.

Do you really think when you post? The 1.4l is an LT option package. If & when Chevy brings forth such a model then it will be equipped with an appropriate power plant. You don't build killer Cobalt SS turbo 4's and put them in Eco models why would you do the opposite? Less emotion and more thought in fewer post's and you might be relevant.
