2013 Ford Focus ST Posts Best-in-Class Fuel Efficiency
Ford’s Fast Five-door Achieves 32 MPG and 154 MPH
Proving there’s plenty of both “Eco” and “Boost” within its advanced 2.0-liter EcoBoost I4 engine, the 2013 Ford Focus ST will deliver EPA grades of 23 mpg city/32 mpg highway/26 mpg combined to go with its 252 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. That makes the Focus ST the greenest of the hottest hatches in today’s marketplace, with better fuel-economy numbers than rivals like the Volkwswagen GTI or Mazdaspeed3.
According to Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development, it’s “just one more example of the ‘win-win’ in the Focus ST narrative. This kind of performance combined with these high levels of efficiency sets a new benchmark with this car.”
