At Groove Ford, one of the leading Denver Ford dealerships, we are very excited to announce the arrival of Ford's newest remodel, the 2012 Focus.
The Ford Focus is one of the best handling hatchbacks in the market. Combined with a 2.0-Litre 4-cylinder Ford "EcoBoost" engine producing an impressive 247 hp and 360 ft/lbs of torque and you get the production ready 5-door 2012 Focus ST. Oh and to spice things up, it comes in a 6-speed manual transmission.
High pressure direct injection, low-inertia turbo charging and Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT) helps bring new levels of performance while cutting both CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by more than 20 per cent from the previous-generation. The exhaust system with its centre exit tailpipes has been tuned to deliver a balanced audible experience.
With so much power sent to the front wheels, The Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) and Torque Steer Compensation (TSC) system reduces torque steer while accelerating at full throttle and/or on uneven surfaces. Electronic Stability Program has been enhanced further and can fortunately be switched off for improved driver control though a sub-feature Enhanced Dynamic Cornering Control (EDCC) remains active. More tech in the form of Enhanced Torque Vectoring Control and Cornering under Steer Control (CUSC) uses torque to enhance cornering abilities and reduce under steer. This should help Denver Ford shoppers feel at ease when settling into the new Focus, as this car was built with safety in mind.
Upgraded shock absorbers and springs lower the ST chassis by 10mm for a more aggressive stance while the centre of gravity is brought closer to the road aiding precise cornering while upgraded suspension knuckles and an all-new anti-roll bar design, improves feedback and control.
The 2012 Ford Focus ST is available in a new signature color, "Tangerine Scream" with Performance Blue, Race Red and White being the other color options available. Interior details range from specially designed pedals, steering wheel and gearshift, and darker headlining and trim with unique Recaro seats. An additional 'Performance Pack' option offers the Y-shaped spoke design 18-inch alloy wheels in black with a red finish on the brake calipers.
The ST will be offered in three distinct trim options - the "standard ST1" with key features like cloth Recaro seats, keyless start, front door scuff plates with ST logo, standard ST rear bench with centre armrest, ST floor mats, automatic headlamp control, auto-dimming rear view mirror and automatic wipers; "mid range ST2" adds partial leather Recaro seats and dual zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) and the "top spec ST3" increases the features with 8-way adjustable leather Recaro seats with pull out cushion, Recaro rear bench and Bi-Xenon headlamps.
