Available in 5-door and wagon body styles, the 2019 Ford Focus ST engine line-up includes Ford’s 280-HP 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol and 190-HP 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines, offering up to 12 per cent more power and 17 per cent more torque compared with the previous generation Focus ST.
A new generation of Ford’s 2.3-litre EcoBoost all-aluminium engine is the most powerful ever offered for a Focus ST. Using advanced turbocharging technology to deliver 280 HP power at 5,500 rpm and 420 Nm of torque from 3,000 rpm to 4,000 rpm, it is also the most free-revving Focus ST engine ever, and supports anticipated 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in less than 6 seconds.
Innovative anti-lag technology developed for the Ford GT supercar and F-150 Raptor pick-up is introduced to the Focus ST, for immediate power delivery in Sport and Track Drive Modes. Anti-lag keeps the throttle open when the driver lifts off the accelerator pedal, alleviating the reversal of air flow from the turbocharger to maintain compressor wheel speed and enabling boost pressure to build faster on demand.
