The new Ford Focus ST 2022 has been unveiled. Ford’s popular compact sports car has a new exterior design and a more digital and connected cabin. All this accompanied by a powerful gasoline engine that is offered with manual transmission and automatic transmission. It will be available with a 5-door hatchback body and in the most practical and familiar configuration, the SportBreak variant.
The fourth generation of Ford Focus It has been brought up to date with a complete and important facelift. A mid-cycle upgrade that will allow you to tackle the rest of your business life ahead. Ford has introduced this “facelift” for each of the members that make up the diverse Focus range. The most exclusive and performance alternative that crowns the offer has not been unrelated to this long-awaited renewal. The new Ford Focus ST 2022 has burst onto the scene.
The development process of the new Focus ST is carried out by the Ford Performance team and echoes all the novelties that the Ford Focus 2022 that we have just seen has released. Available in 5-door hatchback body
and in the SportBreak family setup, stands out for its new image, technological equipment and a mechanical offer in which gasoline is the main fuel. Let’s go into detail.
The design of the new Ford Focus ST 2022
How is it different from a conventional Focus? The truth is that the new Focus ST is a quickly recognizable model. He is dressed in a tailor-made “suit” to bring out his character and sportier side. The exterior design stands out for being daring. Among the most relevant details that should be highlighted we have upper and lower front grilles in the shape of a honeycomb.
The side air inlets have a significant size. In addition, to this we must add some side skirts and aerodynamically optimized spoilers both at the front and at the rear. To this must be added the new front and rear optical groups in which LED technology is the main protagonist. The design of the hood has also changed from the outgoing model.
Another characteristic feature of the Focus ST 2022 is its new 18-inch alloy wheels fitted as standard. 19-inch ones are optionally available.
The interior and technology of the new Ford Focus ST 2022
Leaving aside the outside, if we venture into the interior of the new Focus ST we will quickly be enveloped by a more connected and digital environment. All this without losing the sporting essence. The new 13.2-inch touchscreen to handle the SYNC 4 infotainment system is key, as is the digital instrumentation. Now, let’s focus on the specific features of this sporty version.
The seats of the new Focus ST have received the AGR seal of approval, which guarantees a high level of ergonomics and comfort. They have electric adjustment and heating. Also noteworthy is the design of the multifunction steering wheel with the ST badge as well as the pedals and gear lever. In addition, we must not lose sight of the seat upholstery and trim.
The new Focus ST can be optionally equipped with the package X which includes Dynamic Pixel LED headlights, 19-inch wheels and the Track driving mode for the Drive Mode selector. Other technologies that directly affect driving behavior and dynamics include an electronic limited-slip differential and continuously controlled damping.

With regard to the mechanical section, if we take a look under the hood we will find a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder gasoline engine that develops a power of 280 hp and 420 Nm of maximum torque. It can be associated with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic transmission. In both cases with a front-wheel drive system.
