Europe Facelift Focus & ST news

Information is coming from Belarus, so model arrival dates may vary.
I am going to guess that the major markets like Germany, UK, etc might receive Foci earlier.
Big news is that the 6DCT250 (dry dual clutch) Powershift days are coming to an end.
The Focus diesel engines (TDCI) will be offered with the wet dual clutch Powershift.

Issue price list (specification) for the new model: September 2, 2014
The first models to be released from the plant: October 1, 2014
Arrival of the first models on the market is expected in December 2014
Changing the model specification
- EcoBoost engine 1.0 liters will be available with a 6-speed automatic transmission - 6F (not Powershift) in September 2015
- EcoBoost 1.6 liter engine will be replaced by EcoBoost 1.5 liter (150 hp.. and 180 hp..), both versions will be available with a 6F (not Powershift) Automatic
in March 2015

Focus ST Facelift
Focus ST - in early 2015
The 2.0 TDCI 180 hp (diesel) will be available for Focus ST

You seem to be confused about the application of the DCT250 vis--vis turbocharged engines.

BTW, your entire post was rather incoherent.
Are you OK?

No not confused regarding DCT250 and turbo engines.

And yes I am fine thank you.

The details above were translated from Russian, hence the as you call it incoherent posting.
By all means take a shot at translating

I'd quickly and I mean QUICKLY trade my Focus in for a wet clutch diesel. I doubt ford will bring any diesel powerplants over but I can wish.

You might just be surprised. Nothing preventing them from bringing them in now.

Other than cost and the requirements to get passed Carb and EPA emissions for NOx and particulate matter which kind of priced everyone other than the Germans out of the small to mid sized car lines with exception to the overpriced Chevrolet Cruze diesel.
