PostHeaderIcon Once You Realize What the 2019 Ford Focus ST Wagon Offers, You’ll Be Sad That It Won’t Be Sold in the U.S.

Hot hatch lovers that need more practicality than what a hatchback can offer now have one more excellent car to choose – the brand new 2019 Ford Focus ST wagon, based on the fourth-generation Focus. The new Focus ST wagon retains the sporty driving edge of the ST hatch but injects extra practicality for those who need it. Some may even say it’s cooler than the ST hatch since hot wagons always seem to have a glowing halo around them that just makes people go crazy.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Ford Focus ST

Now that Ford has decided to kill off its entire lineup of cars in the United States, aside from the Ford Mustang, of course, the Focus ST is destined to become to enthusiasts what the Honda Civic Type R once was – a car that fills our every desire but is somehow just out of reach. It’s more powerful brethren, the Focus RS, will also suffer the same fate, never landing on U.S. shores again, but for now, the new ST has been announced, and it already has fanboys up in arms. It’s not surprising really since the new ST comes complete with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost that’s good for 276 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque – 24 ponies and 40 pound-feet more than the last model we were lucky enough to see. And, it comes with a striking new look and the reminder that the next-gen Focus RS will be that much better too. We know you’re sad that you can’t get your hands on the new ST, so we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. At the very least, you can plaster it on your desktop and show it some love from afar.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Has Launched the 2020 Focus ST and it Trumps the Outgoing Model in Every Respect

Ford Performance has finally unveiled the all-new Ford Focus ST. Although it does not feature a lot of exterior and interior changes, the hatch is pumped up on the inside. Under the hood sit’s as much as 276 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque just waiting to be unleashed. On paper, the 2020 Ford Focus ST seems very promising. Does it have enough to take on the Volkswagen Golf GTI/GTD?

PostHeaderIcon Ford Adds the Rugged Focus Active to its European Lineup

Persuaded by the high interest in SUVs and crossovers in Europe, Ford decided to rough up the 2019 Ford Focus a bit and give it an Active badge. The Focus is the third model in Ford’s lineup to be offered in Active trim after the likes of Fiesta and KA+. The Focus Active can be had in both hatchback or wagon body styles, and Ford says its engineers tweaked the springs, dampers, and stabilizer bars, while also lifting the ride by 30 mm up front and 34 mm at the rear.

PostHeaderIcon Top 10 Compact Cars Ranked From Best to Worst

Compact cars still represent great value for money, even in 2018, in a market flooded by SUVs and all kinds of niche crossovers. Compact models are a great choice as a first new car and, luckily, there’s still a great variety of cars to choose from. Here are our top 10 choices.

Picking the best small car of the myriad of options available isn’t an easy thing to do. If you’ve made up your mind and you don’t want a compact SUV or crossover and, instead, go for a compact sedan or hatchback, there are the obvious choices like a Volkswagen Golf, a Honda Civic or a Toyota Corolla. But the market is much wider than that. and

PostHeaderIcon Watch the 2019 Ford Focus ST-Line Make a Top Speed Run on the Autobahn

Most of the autobahn top speed runs we’ve seen over the years usually involve a high-powered German sedan with its governor disabled. This time, we’ve got something a little different. Ever wonder what it’s like to push the new Ford Focus ST-Line to its limits? Now’s your chance to find out, with this point-of-view take from AutoTopNL.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Has Already Rendered the Ford Focus Pickup

The Ford Focus could be used as the basis for a compact, unibody pickup that the Blue Oval is looking to offer in the U.S. in the future. The rumored model was first mentioned by Automobile Magazine as a possible addition to Ford’s shifting product lineup in the country. As the company’s car lineup is about the go — the Focus and the Mustang are the only ones being spread — the rush to beef up its crossover, SUV, and pickup offerings begin. One of the reported models is the Focus-based compact, unibody pickup, and as is often the case with ground-breaking model developments like this one, it didn’t take long for renderings of the rumored pickup to surface.

PostHeaderIcon Ranked: The Most Powerful Four-Cylinder Production Cars (and One From 1911)

Right now, the car world is swamped with turbocharged engines. This means high specific output per liter of capacity,
lots of torque, massive horsepower numbers and incredible specs for the cars equipped with such tech. While trying to figure out how to present the most powerful four-cylinder production cars, I thought of listing them by the highest specific output of the engine. Yet, listing five with 350+ horsepower feels more fun. It is quite incredible to see to what lengths the producers are willing to go in order to convince us that turbocharging and four-cylinder engines are just enough for basically anything, including high-end performance. These five cars with four-cylinder engines have so much power they will make you forget about a V-8.

PostHeaderIcon 8 Cars With Amazing Front Wheel Drive Systems That Prove You Don’t Always Need AWD

Have you ever seen a front wheel drive car making a one wheel burnout? You have? Great! That’s the problem many manufacturers have been trying to circumnavigate or completely resolve on FWD cars. Not so much to deter you from making one wheel burnouts, but to make the car corner better and safer with putting down the power to the wheel that actually has some grip. The reason a FWD car (or any car for that matter) tends to send power to the wheel with least grip is the so-called open differential – a system designed to send power to the wheel with 50 percent of power reaching one wheel and 50 percent the other. However, as opposite wheels on cars must spin at different rates (like when cornering), the open differential cannot be locked, thus allowing for some extreme tendencies to send the power through the path of least resistance. Simply said – to the wheels with the least grip. Using this system saves a ton in R&D, the simple design of open differential makes it cheap to produce, and it doesn’t put too much strain on the various drivetrain elements. However, some tend to make fun of open diffs. “They are just like a one-wheel drive.” Is there any truth to this? After all, the power always goes to the wheel with the least resistance.

While an open diff works great in normal conditions (on a surface and in conditions that provide similar grip to both wheels,) more extreme circumstances (cornering fast, driving on slippery surfaces and the like) do limit its effectiveness fast. That is why manufacturers found a number of ways to circumnavigate these problems with mechanical means. Those cars using systems to defeat the limitations of open diffs are usually in the upper echelons of the car world, and I am presenting you nine of them.

PostHeaderIcon The Next-Gen Focus ST Will Have the Same 2.0-liter Four-Banger but Ditch the Unique Six-Speed Manual for an Automatic

There was news of Ford downsizing the Focus ST to a 1.5-liter, three-cylinder engine in the next-generation Focus, and also news of it upgrading to the RS’ 2.3-liter Ecoboost engine; but according to Motoring, it looks like Ford has balanced it out and retained the same 2.0-liter engine. Pushing the envelope a bit further, it looks like Ford is ditching the ST’s unique manual transmission in favor of an automatic. Playing it safe there, Ford?

PostHeaderIcon The Ford Focus Active is Suffering From an Identity Crisis

More than a few hearts were broken when Ford announced plans to dramatically scale back its non-crossover and non-SUV lineups in the U.S. One of the casualties of that downsizing is the Ford Focus. Unfortunately, all but one version of the Focus are expected to be eliminated from the company’s U.S. lineup. That means that there’s a good chance that we can say goodbye to hatchback and sedan versions of the Focus. It’s not likely, but the ST could also get the heave-ho as could the range-topping RS, which only arrived in the country in 2015. We barely knew it. The good news is that there is one version of the Focus that will, without a dout, remain in the U.S. It’s called the Focus Active, and it’s essentially a raised five-door hatchback with some semblance of a crossover.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Focus RS

First introduced in 2002, the Ford Focus RS was produced in very limited quantities during the first- and second-generation models. The third-gen car was launched in 2015 after many years of rumors with a Mustang engine under the hood and an all-wheel-drive system. Discontinued in 2018 just as Ford unveiled the fourth-generation Focus, the RS nameplate is likely to return sooner than before and with even more aggressive performance ratings. Although a production model has yet to be confirmed, Ford was already spotted testing a higher performance variant of the Focus in Europe. Whether it’s the ST or the RS remains unclear for now, but both nameplates are likely to return in dealerships soon.

But the big mystery here is not when the Focus RS will return, but what engine it will use. According to recent rumors, the next-generation Focus RS could become a hybrid. This would be a first for the nameplate and a big blow for the Volkswagen Golf R. There isn’t much info as to what it will have under the hood, but more details should become available as the Focus RS goes out testing. Stay tuned for updates and check out the speculative review below to find out what we already know about the hot hatchback.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Focus ST

The 2019 Ford Focus ST is the performance-oriented version of the fourth-generation Focus, a hatchback unveiled in 2018. Introduced in February 2019, the new Focus ST brings many changes to the table, including a bigger EcoBoost engine, more power than ever, and state-of-the-art technology. Unlike its predecessors, the new Focus ST won’t come to the U.S., as Ford decided to stop offering most of its passenger cars in North America. The previous-gen Focus ST was already more powerful than its main competitor, the Volkswagen Golf GTI, and the new hatchback takes things up a notch. Rated at 276 horsepower, it’s also more powerful than the Hyundai i30 N with the Performance Package, which places the Focus ST at the top of its segment. Alongside the new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, Ford also unveiled a new EcoBlue mill for diesel enthusiasts that want an alternative to the Golf GTD. Let’s find out how the new Focus ST compares to its rivals in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Ford to Bring the New 1.5-liter Three-Banger to the U.S. Market; Will it Wind Up In the Next-Gen Ford Focus?

Unveiled earlier this month, the new-generation Ford Focus introduced a brand-new platform from the company, as well as a number of new or updated engines. Set to arrive in the United States sometime next year, the Focus could also bring Ford’s brand-new, 1.5-liter, three-cylinder EcoBoost unit to North America.

PostHeaderIcon The Ford Focus ST and Focus RS are Coming and One of Them Was Just Caught Testing on the Nurburgring

It’s been only a week since the fourth-generation Ford Focus was unveiled, and the company is already testing a new version of the hatchback. Our paparazzi just spotted a camouflaged Focus on the Nurburgring track, and despite the thick wrap, it’s pretty obvious that Ford isn’t testing the standard model. But what is it?

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Ford Focus

The new Focus is here, and its DNA has evolved in a way that pleases the car gods. It has a more aggressive look outside and a more refined interior with lots of new technology. It’s now a car for the modern ages and is now fully equipped to compete with the Honda Civic and Chevy Cruze, among others. The problem is that it will go on sale in Europe later this year (with more than 180 horsepower in range-topping form) but won’t come to the U.S. until sometime in 2019. It might not be a supercar, but the Focus does have its own following. If you’re one of the many Focus fans out there, we’ve hand-picked our favorite wallpaper of the new model and dropped a gallery for you to browse too – go ahead and take a few to keep your desktop fresh and the itch subdued until it goes on sale.

PostHeaderIcon Visual Comparison: 2018 Ford Focus vs 2019 Ford Focus

After seven years on the market, the third-generation Focus was finally retired in 2018 and replaced with a new model redesigned on a clean sheet. Highly popular in the U.S. and Europe, the third-gen Focus leaves a big legacy behind. The outgoing hatchback was a high seller, it spawned the best ST model yet, and marked the return of the RS nameplate. Whether the new Focus will be able to fill the big shoes or not is hard to predict at this point, but we can compare the two cars inside and out to see what changed and which is ultimately more appealing. Let’s have a closer look below.
