ST front facia

I was wondering if the front facia from the ST would fit on my Titanium Focus. I really like the look of the ST and it looks like it should be able to swap pretty easily. Any one have a thought on this.

To offset the price, you could always sell your stock bumper, the ones with damage go for 200-300 on eBay.

Wait till the 2014's or 2015 MY come out, the front fascia will be a direct bolt on and will be styled similar to the catfish Aston Martin look.

I like the looks of this much better than the "Rally Car" look on my current car. The new Fusion employs the Aston styled grill as well. Frankly I'm surprised that Ford didn't adopt that feature across their entire model line. If you look at many brands, you'll notice they very often adopt a certain look that distinguishes their brand over the competition. Eg..Mercedes, BMW, Audi, etc.... The Aston grill is hot looking and seems to be popular with consumers, so we might be seeing more of this look as other models get updated. Taurus, maybe?

Given the FFE already had this nose and it doesn't seem that likely to actually translate to the N/A Focus that well it seems unlikely that it will change anytime soon.

The Fiesta was due for a refresh and the addition of the 1.0l EcoBoost i3 engine, but the brand new Escape still shares its styling language with the standard Focus. Therefore it seems less likely that they will do what this rendering hopes for.

Oh and on the comment as to what it would cost, that's just the parts cost, you'd still have to find a body shop to paint and install it.

The first person who did it was on an insurance claim. I was trying to avoid filing a claim despite the car having been hit by road debris just two hours after getting the car returned from the shop the first time. Of course it was now for naught as I have an ISM ST2 to drive instead.



There was nothing mechanically wrong with my old car, but it just felt like time to move on rather than to put all sorts of money into it just for the sake of a certain look without the power to back it all up.

None of Ford's product line seems uniform at least the SUV lineup, but the recent testing images lead me to believe they will be changing the front on the Focus and the C-Max as well. Both cars are in this shot, the C-Max is in the back and below you can see a similar mock-up on the fascia.

The ugly mock up has basically the same opening as the design intent of the Aston Martin grill, I would say it's just basic airflow testing for cold weather without giving away too much. There is some speculation on what it is, but I think they are right on the fascia change or new engine addition, RS I am not so sure about.

The grille openings don't match on either mule. The Focus looks like a hacked up ST facia with a different grille, and has been speculated to be either a new facia for the 2015, or for the RS. It could just be mocked up for air flow testing on the 2.3L EcoBoost i4 engine rather than anything that means much in terms of production cars.

Anyway I'd hope it wasn't going to be the next focus as the Aston styled grille doesn't fit right on the Focus Electric and Fiesta.
