The wait is over and the 2015 Ford Focus ST will finally be revealed to the public. Where, you ask? This big reveal will be taking place at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend in the UK. There are many options for hatchbacks in Europe but not so many that run on diesel, which will now be an option for the 2015 Ford Focus ST.
This Ford Focus will be packing a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four generating 182 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque with a top speed reaching 135 miles per hour (which is less than the gasoline Focus, but who needs to go that fast anyways!).
The big difference between the diesel Focus and gasoline Focus are the amount of emissions that are put out and the fuel economy. This is a double win for the diesel because it puts out a third of the emissions and gets 50 percent better fuel economy.
The Ford Focus diesel will have all of the new features that the 2015 Ford Focus ST will have including: recalibrated suspension, updated front-end and rear-end styling, and upgraded impressive interior equipment. This is a hatchback that it worth considering!

When we think of Mobile World Congress, we usually think of the newest smartphones and tablets, updated technology for the little things that make our lives easier, and anything else related to this industry. We don’t normally think of the debut of a vehicle to be at Mobile World Congress, but this year, it is!
Ford is set to debut the new 2015 Focus. With so many changes to both the exterior and the interior, the premiere is sure to be an exciting one. The five-door hatchback with more defined headlights and a new grille up front that resembles the 2015 Ford Mustang are just a few of the changes that we can expect to see.
Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine will be available for the six-speed manual transmission, but Ford hasn’t released the engine lineup yet for the available options, however, we can speculate that the 2.0-liter engine will still be available.
Seeing as how the basis for the Mobile World Congress is technology, what would it be to have a vehicle there without amazing technology to offer? There will be an 8-inch display for those with MyFord Touch®, which will also include SYNC 2 functionality and updated AppLink for the smartphone. The technology will also include more natural voice commands, as well as an enhanced Blind Spot Information System® that will warn you when you are changing lanes and can also prevent you from backing into traffic.
We are very excited for the premiere of the 2015 Focus. In the meantime, come visit us at Shults Ford of Harmarville and check out the many great Ford Focuses to choose from!
