The sporty, EcoBoost-powered Focus ST is the spiritual successor to the fine-handling SVT Focus. Tuned and tested by Ford’s American SVT and European RS teams, the hot hatch is Ford’s first truly global performance car.

Offered only in practical five-door hatchback form, the Focus ST features a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that produces 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The peak torque figure is achieved in overboost mode, which adds 15 extra lb-ft for up to 15 seconds when the skinny pedal is mashed to the floor. The only transmission available is a six-speed manual.

While all that power going to the front wheels would be a recipe for massive torque steer in most cars, that isn’t the case in Focus ST thanks to a tuned version of the Torque Vectoring Control found on the base-model Focus. In the standard system, brake torque is applied to the inner wheel when traveling through a corner, reducing understeer and allowing for more traction, much like a traditional limited-slip differential. The Focus ST’s enhanced system applies steering pressure more aggressively and also adds cornering control, which applies torque to create a yaw effect based on the car’s understeer.

2014 Ford Focus ST Release Date :
Meanwhile some rumors told that 2014 Ford Focus ST release date will be in late this year. The 2013 Ford Focus ST is a great-fun-to-drive 5-door no matter what the price, but when you figure it starts at just over $24,000, it becomes an eye-opening bargain among high-performance cars.

2014 Ford Focus ST Price :
Pricing for the new 2014 Ford Focus ST has been set at $24,115 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2014 Ford Focus ST we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.

2014 Ford Focus ST Interior :
The interior of the core Focus model is already designed with a “cockpit” feel. In the ST variant, that sporty feeling is heightened with everything the driver touches and feels reinforcing that it is unmistakably an ST. Details range from specially designed pedals to the steering wheel and gearshift. The darker headlining and trim on the pillars, an integral part of the ST’s design DNA, adds to the performance driving feel.

Standard features on the Focus ST include Ford’s SYNC connectivity system, 18-inch alloy wheels, intelligent access with push button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and foglamps.

Two optional equipment package are available for those seeking a well-equipped hot hatch. Equipment Group ST2 adds a premium Sony audio system, HD radio, dual-zone automatic climate control and Recaro partial-leather seats. To those features, Equipment Group ST3 adds a navigation system, HID headlights, ambient lighting, heated mirrors and Recaro full-leather heated thrones.

Safety features such as six airbags, a tire pressure monitor, and a security system are also standard. Available features include MyFord Touch, navigation, a Sony audio system, HID headlamps, heated mirrors, and Recaro seats.

2014 Ford Focus ST Exterior :
The cabin of our tester carries on the exterior’s golden zeal, with shouty yellow fabric inserts in the optional Recaro chairs (base ST models receive the sport seats borrowed from the Focus SE) and contrasting stitching, though charcoal is an available option. Other high-performance cues include a trio of auxiliary gauges in a dash-top binnacle, feel-good four-spoke leather-wrapped wheel, metal pedal pads, a special gearshift knob and a predictable assortment of ST badges everywhere from the aforementioned wheel to the sill plates. We find the yellow seat fabrics to be a bit, well, Pep Boys, but they do liven up what might otherwise be an overly somber interior (the headliner and pillar trim are darker on ST models as well). Besides, they grip like mad, with aggressive seatback bolstering that keeps one’s torso locked in place in the tightest of corners. They’re not rock-hard, either, providing a nice mix of support and compliance, though we suspect those who have stuffed away a few too many Taco Bell Doritos Locos will want to stick with the stock seats.

The steering itself has gone to an electric assist setup for improved fuel economy and emissions, and unique to the segment, it includes a variable-ratio rack that gets quicker as the steering inputs increase. To its credit, it’s a system that’s easy to get used to, and it’s more satisfying than some early attempts at this sort of thing by BMW, say. But it should come as no surprise that it’s not perfect – there’s simply too much going on with the front axle to deliver heaps of feedback. Variable ratio rack, torque vectoring, e-diff, understeer control and the small matter of 270 pound-feet of torque means that you won’t confuse the steering experience with a rear-drive car, even though you can rotate the ST’s rump in corners by sharply letting off the throttle when the electronic stability control is in Sport mode (or sent packing entirely). Unusually, there’s no sport button to summon increased steering effort or suspension firmness, but it won’t be missed.

The brake pedal is no less agreeable than the throttle, with 12.6-inch discs up front and 10.7-inch rears acted upon smoothly by an easily modulated and pleasantly firm pedal. We noticed precious little deterioration on hot downhill runs, but we weren’t really tromping on the brakes that much it’ll take a good track day session to really determine the worth of these binders.

There is no mistaking the 2014 Ford Focus ST as anything but the most performance-oriented variant in the Focus line, yet to its credit it’s not covered with scoops, spoilers and similar hey-look-at-me tomfoolery. Instead, the 5-door offers a well-integrated, high-mounted spoiler and mild rocker panel skirting to exhibit its performance-cred without shouting it. We’re fans of the brawny 5-spoke alloy wheels and the blacked-out grille. The rear of the car is also attractive with the spoiler balanced by an interesting and stylish approach to its center-mounted twin exhaust tips.

2014 Ford Focus ST Engine :
The front-wheel drive five-door hatchback Focus ST comes in one well-equipped trim. It includes a direct-injected 252-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine combined with a six-speed manual transmission. Standard features include a sport suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, unique front/rear fascias and grille, 18-inch alloy wheels with Y-rated summer tires, and a center-mounted dual exhaust with bright tips. Other features include SYNC, a turbo boost gauge, and Intelligent Access with push button start.

With its 1.6-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine making 197 horsepower and 202 pound-feet, the Fiesta ST pushes out more than the MINI Cooper S or the Fiat Abarth, Ford points out. And at just $22,195, including destination, the 2014 Fiesta ST starts at a lower price than either of those models. Now, the 2014 Ford Focus ST has received an official EPA rating of 26 mpg city, 35 highway (and 29 mpg Combined).

Mated to the 2.0-liter engine is a six-speed manual transmission, which has specially revised gearing to produce the maximum punch from each throw of the gear shift. The Global Performance Vehicles group spent significant attention to detail in ensuring the ratio of sixth gear was perfectly in tune with the 2014 Focus ST, giving the driver optimum performance while remaining long enough to help maintain excellent fuel economy on longer runs.
