Yup, everything I've read points to an October launch.

The pic of that wagon makes it look like Ford is bringing back the profile of the 2000. Looks good.

Still can't afford one.. :(
I need a good replacement for my '01. This is it. But I will have to keep driving the '01 for some time. Hopefully they are still selling the ST in the states in 2015 or 2016...

I tried searching this thread....

.....but couldn't find it. Will the ST have the DCT transmission option. I am too old to drive a stick again. I might like to change gears manually about 5% of the time, but don't won't to deal with it the other 95% of the time on the daily commute.

There has been no mention of a DCT for the ST.

It will have the dual clutch automatic, but not when released. Basically, it's about getting it to work as well in the car as the manual transmission. It will be available later though.
I read it in a magazine. They met with the ST team, went for a drive, and got plenty of details. Including a September release date of the manual version. They're not sure how much longer the auto will take though.
