FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW: Ford reveals 2012 "CO2 efficient" ST range that doesn't compromise on performance
Ford’s Global Performance Vehicles group has taken this technology and developed a 250PS high-output derivative of the 2.0-litre Ford EcoBoost engine for Focus ST.
This has a maximum output of 250PS and strong torque levels in a broad, flat torque curve peaking at 360Nm. The responsive torque output, a trademark of Ford EcoBoost engines, is maintained despite the impressive peak figures.
Compared to the 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine in the previous-generation European Focus ST, the new 4-cylinder engine offers increased performance, but its smaller capacity and innovative technology will allow it to cut both CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by more than 20% from the previous-generation European model when fuel consumption data is certified.
European customers can also choose a stylish wagon version of the Focus ST, which will launch alongside the five-door model in 2012.
