Ford Focus ST*

Coming in 2020


Fast and Agile

Ford’s famed 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbo engine is the most powerful ever offered for a Focus ST, using advanced turbocharging technology delivering 206kW of power and 420Nm of torque4.


Take your pick

For the first time, the Focus ST is available with a new 7-speed intelligent automatic transmission option as well as the 6-speed manual transmission. The intelligent auto transmission has been carefully crafted to deliver gear differentiation to maximise flexibility. This along with Adaptive Shift Scheduling, which alters gearshift timings depending on different driving styles, delivers driving performance that is optimised whether you’re on the road or the track.


Outstanding Ride Quality

The Focus ST comes armed with Ford’s sophisticated Continuously Controlled Damping technology. This smart system continuously monitors vehicle suspension. It then adjusts individual damping responses to deliver enhanced comfort and outstanding driving dynamics.


Driving Dynamics

With Selectable Drive Modes, including Normal, Slippery, Sport, and Track, you can seamlessly change between drive modes that suit the driving conditions and your driving scenario at the push of a button.


Drive like a pro

The Performance Shift Light is designed to optimise your gear shifts for improved performance driving. A coloured ST logo is perfectly positioned in the rev counter and illuminates to let you know the best time to shift gears.


Faster off the line

Designed to deliver a consistent take off and maximise acceleration off the line, Focus ST is equipped with Launch Control. Set the maximum rpm for the engine and you can put your foot flat on the throttle whilst the car holds your desired rpm.


Seamless Downshifting

Available for the first time, the new Focus ST is available with rev-matching technology. The smart system is designed to make dropping into a lower gear faster and smoother. This enables drivers to enjoy momentum-maintaining gearshifts delivered by advanced heel and toe driving techniques.


Control through corners

The Electronic Limited Slip Differential on the new Focus ST has been engineered to provide superior performance and stability. The system continuously analyses data from a range of sensors and can adjust the torque split between drive wheels within milliseconds. This improves traction, cornering and stability, meaning you can take corners more quickly whilst staying in control.

Power meets refinement

The Focus ST is designed to stand out, inside and out! With exterior styling cues that are unapologetic Ford Performance inspired with an interior designed to match.

Performance Features

A driving seat made for performance

So you get the most out of your Focus ST, it comes with race-inspired RECARO sport seats. Highly supportive, these seats are optimised to give you the perfect position for every drive.

Performance Features

Comfort & control

The unique Focus ST interior intensifies the sporty atmosphere of every drive with a sports steering wheel, alloy pedals and ST-embossed aluminium gear knob & scuff plates.

Performance Features

Style and substance

A large, steeply angled rear spoiler does a lot more than give the Focus ST an aggressive, sporty silhouette. The rear spoiler increases downforce on the car to improve dynamics and help you really stick to the road.

Fast and Agile

Fast and Agile

Ford’s famed 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbo engine is the most powerful ever offered for a Focus ST, delivering 206kW of power and 420Nm of torque4 through a choice of six-speed manual with rev-matching or new seven-speed automatic transmission. The sophisticated Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) system monitors suspension, body, steering and braking inputs every 2 milliseconds to adjust damping responses for outstanding driving dynamics, while the electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD) further enhances cornering and stability.

Overseas model shown, Australian specifications may vary, please check website closer to launch for final details.

Comfortable and In Control

The unique Focus ST interior intensifies the sporty atmosphere with an ST-embossed aluminium gear knob and scuff plates. Ford Performance engineers fine-tuned the positioning of the Recaro front seats to complement the in-control feel for the driver. Selectable Drive Modes technology features in the Focus ST for the first time, enabling drivers to adjust the vehicle’s character to suit the driving scenario, with a dedicated “Sport” button on the flat-bottomed steering wheel providing direct access to Sport mode.

Comfortable and In Control

Functional and Sporty

Functional and Sporty

The Focus ST builds on the premium, sporting Focus silhouette with subtle, functional styling changes and unique alloy wheel designs. Revised upper and lower front grille designs are optimised for increased cooling capability, and bold signature lower wing elements channel air for improved aerodynamic performance. A larger, more steeply angled rear roof spoiler increases downforce, plus a twin exit tailpipe configuration borders the aggressively styled rear diffuser.

Smart technology

The Focus ST is packed with smart technologies to both help protect you and make every journey more enjoyable.

Smart Features

Charge on the go

The interior of the Focus ST is designed to maximise space and convenience. For example, the large media container in front of the gear lever is big enough for even the largest smartphones. And with wireless charging also available for compatible smartphones, it has never been easier to make sure your devices are always ready to use.

Smart Features

Go hands-free

The intuitive SYNC®3 system helps you stay connected as you drive. Use voice commands to find your nearest restaurant, make hands free phone calls and listen to text messages. Seamlessly integrate your compatible smartphone through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or Applink® for hands-free control of your favourite apps1

Smart Features

Music to your ears

Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. That’s exactly what you can expect in the Focus ST. Why? Because it comes with B&O Play. This premium level 675-watt audio system delivers a rich, powerful sound via a 10-speaker, woofer and subwoofer inclusive set-up. This advanced technology has been specifically designed, developed and fine-tuned for the Focus by B&O’s specialist acousticians. So, turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in the concert hall that is your car’s cabin.

Smart Features


The Blind Spot Information System2 uses radar sensors to see vehicles that may be hidden in your blind spot. They’re situated on either side of your Focus ST and alert you with an orange light, clearly displayed in the side door mirror.

Smart Features

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go3 adjusts your cruise control speed based on the vehicle ahead. If traffic slows to a standstill, the system can bring your ST to a complete stop. And when the traffic clears, your Focus ST automatically accelerates back up to your previous pre-set speed. This smart technology also includes Speed Sign Recognition – useful if you fail to spot a change in speed zones.

Smart Features


Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving manoeuvrability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering.

Smart Features

Adaptive Lighting

Adaptive Lighting with Ford Dynamic LED headlights delivers a precise and intensely bright light pattern that automatically adjusts to suit different road and driving conditions. In addition, the glare-free high beam adjusts itself automatically to avoid dazzling other drivers, and the new system can even read the curve of the road to illuminate corners and crossings before you enter them. This feature also includes daytime running lights for enhanced visibility.

Smart Features

Electric Park Brake

The electric parking brake is a simple addition that has some surprising advantages. For instance, it gives you more room in the cabin and it’s easier to apply. All you have to do is press a button in the centre console.
