Here at Birchwood, we are passionate about all things Ford, so we were delighted to be chosen to host the Ford Focus ST ahead of its official launch in June. Ford UK invited our Hastings dealership to be one of a select few Ford retailers across the country to showcase the model – and of course, we snapped up the opportunity.
Our VIP event was held over two days, from 15-16 May. We invited customers to pop along to our state-of-the-art showroom to view the model in the metal, and stayed open to 7pm so attendees could visit at their convenience. As a supporter of the local Sussex RS Owners Club, we also invited members to enjoy an exclusive preview of the car.
Many customers and RSOC members attended over the two days, exploring the Focus ST in detail and admiring the design, quality and performance on offer in this latest Ford performance model.
The Ford Focus ST has been precision engineered to offer more power than ever, boasting a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that produces a stunning 280PS. Its suspension has been finely tuned to deliver greater control and a thrilling ride, which is enhanced for the first time by an Electronic Limited Slip Differential to maximise traction.
A 2.0-litre diesel producing 190PS is also on offer, which incorporates torque vectoring control to limit understeer as you take corners. A set of Selectable Drive Modes, meanwhile, enables you to adjust the parameters of the vehicle to suit your driving preferences and the road conditions. Choose between Normal, Sport and Slippery/Wet among others for the most dynamic experience.
