2018 Ford Focus St Release Date

First arriving for the 2012 model year, the third-generation Ford Focus got a substantial refresh for the 2015 model year. With its recent refresh and addition of the high-performance Focus RS model in 2016, the 2018 Focus might be all new — we’ll update this space as soon as we have more info.

The current, 2017 Ford Focus is available in two body styles and multiple trims from S (sedan) and SE (sedan, hatch) to Titanium (sedan, hatch), ST (hatch), and RS (hatch). A Ford Focus Electric is also available with a newly upgraded EPA-rated range of 115 miles, up from 2016’s 76 miles. In the future, Ford plans to offer an electric SUV with a 300-mile range.

Four engines are offered on the 2017 model depending on trim level. The base engine is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter I-4 with 160 hp and 146 lb-ft (S, SE, SEL, Titanium) mated to a five-speed manual (S sedan) or six-speed dual-clutch automatic. A turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost I-3 with engine stop-start technology and 123 hp and 125 lb-ft mated to a six-speed manual or the six-speed automatic is optional for the SE sedan.
