The Ford Focus was a succession of the Ford Escort. The Escort nameplate lived across several decades and world markets. The Focus follows suit. Both have the specific goal of commuter travel in a compact package. While all variants fit the bill, the base Focus leaves a lot to be desired if performance were to ever cross your mind behind the wheel.
Luckily, Ford created the Focus ST. This is a significant contender in the growing “hot hatch” segment. The Focus ST comes equipped with a direct injected, 2.0L turbocharged, ecoboost inline four cylinder and 6-speed manual transmission. This peppy package enjoys extensive aftermarket support and only gets better with tuning!
When the news broke Ford’s Focus would be released in a turbocharged variant, COBB had open arms for support. The Focus ST has lots of carryover from the already supported Mazdaspeed3. Not only did this make support a no-brainer but provided a jumpstart to R&D efforts.
Support now includes tuning with the Accessport, custom ECU features, and a full line-up of hard parts to propel the ST even further.
