2015 Ford Focus ST Diesel Coming to Goodwood

2015 Ford Focus ST Diesel Coming to Goodwood

The updated 2015 Ford Focus ST will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this week sporting a new diesel powertrain. 

According to Just-Auto, the new oil-burning Focus ST will make its appearance at the festival when Ford takes the wraps off of the 2015 Focus ST. Put together to compete with Volkswagen GTD, the ST is likely to use a 2.0-liter TDCi engine with 182 hp, letting it accelerate to 62 mph in around eight seconds.

The company released the photo seen above and the video embedded below to tease the car, before its official unveiling this Friday, the 27th of June.

Not just a new engine is coming to the 2015 car though, Ford says that the same technology and quality improvements are coming to ST as those fit to other members of the Focus family that have already been refreshed.

North American availability is unknown, but small diesel-powered performance cars rarely make it to our shores.

    Really? Only 182 horsepower? 0-62 in 8 seconds? How exactly is this “performance oriented”? That shouldnt have an st badge.

  • bing

    This is exactly why cool cars like this dont come to the us. Thinking like that. Boat load of torque? Awesome mpg? Great handling? No one cares here except high hp numbers

  • Bryan

    I agree with bing. You’ve gotta keep in mind that this engine will also have A LOT of torque. It’s not all about HP. However, I hope 8seconds to 62 is a modest estimate. Regardless, its handling will be excellent.

    Forbearing patient people will like this Focus.

    There appears to be plenty of info about the ST diesel including pictures but can you find what month it will be in the showroom no. One site says Autumn 14 and another says mid 2015 ? What’s going on Ford
