While the Ford Focus was discontinued in the U.S. years ago, the beloved model managed to stick around in Europe for some time, but ultimately met its maker recently as FoMoCo works to transition its entire passenger vehicle lineup in that region to EVs in the coming years. Thus, those seeking to purchase a high-performance ST variant of the Focus must look to the used vehicle market, though thankfully, there are some nice ones still out there for the taking. Now, fans have yet another stellar example to bid on, as this 2014 Ford Focus ST with just 20k original miles on the clock is currently up for grabs at Cars & Bids.
This 2014 Ford Focus ST is a one-owner car that has lived its entire life in Florida thus far, and aside from tinted windows and extra badges, is in completely original, bone stock condition – which isn’t terribly common given how popular they were to modify. That means it still rolls on its OEM 18-inch wheels, sporting notable features like a rear spoiler, ST scuff plates, and few flaws aside from the typical scuffs and a little curb rash on one of the wheels.
Finished in Oxford White, this Focus ST is also well-equipped with the optional Equipment Group 202A – ST3 Package, which added niceties like dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-trimmed and heated Recaro bucket seats, a rear armrest, bi-xenon HID headlights, cornering lights, LED signature lighting, ambient lighting, an overhead console, heated sideview mirrors, and a voice-activated navigation system.
Power for this hot hatch comes from the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine, was was factory-rated to produce 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, flowing to the front wheels via a proper six-speed manual transmission. Given its condition and low mileage total, we expect this 2014 Ford Focus ST to attract its fair share of interest at auction, and it has already accumulated over a dozen bids in just a day, in fact.
