2013 Ford Focus ST Achieves Class-Leading 32 MPG Highway

The 2013 Ford Focus ST isn’t just fast, it’s frugal.

The Focus ST’s new 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine is certified at 32 mpg highway – better than its manual-equipped competition in the Volkswagen GTI and MazdaSpeed3.

“We’re putting the ‘power’ in the power of choice, again,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “This is just one more example of the ‘win-win’ in the Focus ST narrative. This kind of performance combined with these high levels of efficiency sets a new benchmark with this car.”

The choice of power

Compared with the previous-generation Ford Focus, which last made 140 horsepower and 136 lb.-ft. of torque, Focus ST gives up only 3 mpg on the highway but gains 112 horsepower and 134 lb.-ft. of torque for a total of 252 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft.

As another comparison, the base Focus 2.0-liter engine now makes 160 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque, but achieves as much as 40 mpg on the highway – another example of how Ford is delivering world-class fuel economy and performance.

EcoBoost rising

While Focus ST is the first four-cylinder performance EcoBoost engine, fuel-efficient EcoBoost powertrains are now a mainstay in Ford’s lineup. Ford’s annual EcoBoost production will grow to nearly 1.6 million engines globally by 2013.

On the other end of the spectrum from the Focus ST’s 2.0-liter EcoBoost is the 1.0-liter EcoBoost – Ford’s smallest, quietest engine ever – that arrives in one of the company’s U.S. small cars next year. Already on sale in the European Focus, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine was named the 2012 International Engine of the Year last month.

Additional 1.6-, 2.0- and 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines are already available on Escape, Explorer, Edge, F-150, Flex, Fusion, Police Interceptor sedan and utility vehicles, and Taurus. EcoBoost offers up to a 15 percent reduction in CO2 versus larger-displacement, non-turbocharged engines.
