Ford Focus ST - The Star of The Sweeney
Whether you’ve seen it or not, you’d have had to have been hiding under a rock to escape the most thrilling British action film to hit the cinemas this year. And alongside Flying Squad officers Jack Regan (Ray Winstone) and his loyal partner George Carter (Ben Drew), the gritty British police drama saw the debut of a guaranteed future star. It may not be your conventional film icon; it doesn’t need makeup or a costume, and instead of two legs, it features four glimmering 18-inch alloy wheels. But the new Ford Focus ST is as much a part of the action as every other cast member in this autumn’s The Sweeney.
In this season’s blockbuster, you’ll see for yourself just how much more powerful the new Focus ST is – but what you won’t see in the film is how much more efficient it is. Available for the first time ever in both 5-door and estate models, both are powered by Ford’s brand-new 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which delivers a racy 250PS and 360Nm of torque. This represents a staggering 10 percent increase in power on the previous engine, not to mention reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20 percent. Listen out for the ST’s retuned exhaust note in The Sweeney – you can really hear the difference, whether on the big screen or on your next test drive.
With extra power often comes extra responsibility – so Ford has introduced new technology to ensure that extra power is always under your control. Ford’s innovative new, ultra-quick, ultra-responsive Sport Steering System lets you take corners and negotiate roundabouts without having to re-position your hands. See the Focus ST in action as Reagan and Carter race against time in The Sweeney. Accelerate through corners with maximum grip, thanks to the newly-improved Torque Vectoring Control, which constantly re-balances power and braking between the two front wheels.
Designed and tested in Ford’s own advanced wind tunnel, the Focus ST’s streamlined styling features enhanced aerodynamics for less drag, which improves performance, handling and fuel economy. You’ll now find a sleek sports steering wheel in the cockpit, plus distinctive trim and advanced Recaro seats – just what every Flying Squad officer needs. Of course, don’t forget that the ST is still a Focus, so you won’t be stuck for storage space, especially in the estate.
