Ford is planning on unveiling a Focus ST Diesel, which will be based on the recently introduced facelifted version of the model.
The North American based automaker Ford has officially unveiled the facelifted version of the Focus, but now details emerge on the hot ST variant. But in this case, we’re not talking about a “classic” ST version, as the facelifted version of the Focus is believed to get an ST Diesel too. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet, but it was published by Auto Express, who has recently spoken to the company’s COO, Mark Fields.
According to our source, the Ford Focus ST Diesel in question will be packing a 2.0 liter TDCi engine under its hood, which is producing a total output of 182 HP (135 kW). This is said to help the diesel hot hatch accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8 seconds. The total CO2 emissions of the model will stand at 114 g/km. Besides this, a petrol burner will also be offered on the model, which will come in the 2.0 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder shape, producing 250 HP (184 kW) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque.
