2020 Ford Focus ST Introducing: 276 Hp Hyperactive Car Experience https://goo.gl/9DcsiU

All-new hot hatch scheduled to arrive Down Under in 2020, packed with a new 2.3-litre turbo engine, the first-time availability of an automatic transmission, and more tech than you can sneeze at.
Ford Performance has unveiled the new-generation Focus ST this week, ahead of an Australian launch early next year.

As before, the Focus ST will be offered with both petrol and diesel engines (though we never got the oiler Down Under) with an automatic transmission available for the first time with petrol power.

Headlining the powertrain set is anew 2.3-litre turbocharged 'EcoBoost' four-cylinder petrol engine, pumping out 280PS (206kW) at 5500rpm and 420Nm from 3000 to 4000rpm, paired with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic.

Ford 'anticipates' the petrol-powered Focus ST can hit 100km/h in "less than 6.0 seconds".

"Engine response is enhanced using a low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger, which scavenges exhaust gas energy more effectively using separated channels to minimise interference between gas pulses," the company says in its press release.

"An electronically actuated waste-gate allows closer control of boost pressures for optimised engine performance. In addition, a unique exhaust system that reduces back pressure, bespoke air intake system and optimised intercooler further improve breathing."
