2017 Ford Focus ST in Park Rapids

High-Powered Ford Focus ST Hatchback Available Now at Park Rapids Ford

The 2017 Ford Focus ST could be considered a stealth sports car, cloaked as it is the Focus' relatively low-key exterior appearance. But pull up alongside and listen to the engine for moment and you'll know you're dealing with a wolf in sheep's clothing. Then you can watch as the hot little hatch smokes your own "high-performance" sports coupe.

As the driver, or a lucky passenger, however, you'll know you're in for something special as soon as you climb in the Focus ST. The ST3 package, for example, includes heated, leather-upholstered Recaro front sports seats, Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 10-speaker Sony audio system, carbon fiber interior accents and a stick shift. Yes, there's no automatic transmission available with this hatchback, which should give you a strong clue you're in for a spirited driving experience.

Power and Performance

The Focus ST is a front-wheel drive hatchback but that appears to be incidental to the performance. Under the hood lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a six-speed manual transmission that also has hill-start assist. This is enough to launch the Focus ST from 0-60 mph in just about 6.5 seconds. Handling is tight and the ride is firm and controlled, thanks to a MacPherson strut independent front sport-tuned suspension, torque vectoring control and a Control BladeĀ® independent rear suspension with a stabilizer bar.

Features and Options

The Focus ST comes in three trim levels, as referenced above. The base model does come with performance brakes, front sport seats, an electronic limited-slip differential, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth and a basic six-speaker sound system. Stepping up the Focus ST2 gets you those leather and cloth covered Recaro sport seats, a sunroof, the SYNC 3 system and dual-zone climate control, but you'll need to go with the Focus ST3 if you want full leather, a heated steering wheel and navigation.

As far the hatchback's utility goes, it's quite good. The Focus ST offers 23.8 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats, which expands to 43.9 cubic feet when the 60/40-split rear seatbacks are both folded.
