For the automotive market in Europe, a “charged” wagon Ford Focus ST Wagon is presented, the start of sales of which is scheduled for this summer. The car will be offered with a 2.3-liter gasoline engine EcoBoost and a 2.0-liter diesel engine.

Ford, as they say, “pours salt on the wound” to those enthusiasts who really want to buy a wagon with excellent technical characteristics in North America. A couple of minutes ago, the new high-performance Focus ST was introduced, in the US, the brand will only sell crossovers, pickups, as well as the sports coupe Mustang. Following in the footsteps of the Fiesta ST and Focus ST hatchback, the Focus ST version with a long roof combines powerful engines and extra practicality.

In Europe, where the Focus ST will go on sale this summer, buyers will be able to choose between the 2.3-liter EcoBoost gasoline engine and the 2.0-liter diesel engine. As in the “hot” hatchback, the first one will develop 276 hp power at 5500 rpm, a mark of 420 Nm will be available already from 3000 rpm. Torque will be sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic transmission. So far nothing has been said about performance, but we expect that the station wagon will need a little more than six seconds to sprint from a standstill to 100 km / h.

If you prefer a diesel engine, then you will get 187 hp, which can be used already at 3500 rpm, and the torque of 400 Nm will be available at 2000 rpm. We will have to wait until the company releases detailed information about the dynamic characteristics of the “charged” station wagon with a diesel engine, but it can be said with certainty that the diesel engine runs more slowly than the EcoBoost gasoline unit. On the other hand, it offers the best fuel efficiency.
