Focus ST has NEW platform and NEW 2.0 EB engine!

So I think focus will be the best and will cost little more than these two.

I think around 26-27k.

And the RS, I think ford could upgrade the new platform for 4WD and tune 2.0EB on 300 hp.
Your analysis here seems right on as well as your price estimate for the new Focus ST.

I hate to be the party pooper,but I hate it.
It looks terrible,like a gaping mouth,ugly fish.
I find not one redeeming quality about it.
I will keep my ST and quite likely it will be the last Focus I will ever buy.
I hate the new design and will buy a Mustang over this new design.
I loved the euro RS and ST but this looks absolutely Horrible.
Sorry.

The focus community as a collective whole has been crying out for this car for years, and now people are bitching about it? S T F U

This car just killed all plans I had for my current car and I have allready went to the bank and opened a new savings account specifically for this car. I'll take mine in black please.

IMO i just dont think its "focus" worthy... im not trying to complain about it, hell, the 08+ models dont even do it for me... i like the real focus body style with triangular headlights and all. it just gives it that awesome staring at you look. this new "focus" just looks too much like everything else... and it actually seems like its trying to be a small SUV more than a performance car..
