There are a few wagons in the U.S. today, and few of them are performance oriented. Ford has pulled all of its cars from the U.S. market but the Mustang and if you were sad about the Focus ST no longer being available in the States and you happen to like wagons, get ready to feel worse. Ford has rolled out the Focus ST in a wagon body style in Europe. The Focus ST wagon will go on sale this summer with two engine options.
One of the engine options is a 280 PS 2.3-liter EcoBoost gas engine paired with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic. The other engine option is a 190 PS 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine that is paired only with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Focus ST wagon features the same tech that the normal Focus ST offers with an electronic limited-slip differential, rev-matching, and selectable drive modes.
Ford doesn’t offer any performance specs for the Focus ST wagon, presumably the wagon will have slightly less performance than the 5-door version because it is a larger vehicle. Ford lists the Focus ST fuel economy and emissions in Europe for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost gas engine at 179 g/km for CO2, and fuel-efficiency from 7.9 l/100 km. Emissions and fuel economy for the 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel are 125 g/km for emissions, and fuel-efficiency is 4.8 l/100 km.
The Focus ST wagon should offer the same tech the 5-door brings meaning Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition, and lane centering. Ford’s adaptive front lighting system that helps make seeing in the dark easier is included. The Focus ST was also the first Ford in Europe to offer a head-up display. Active Park Assist 2 and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection is featured. Pricing on the new Ford Focus ST wagon is unannounced.
