    Default 2012 Ford Focus ST

    Coming to the states!

    Now if Ford would add AWD, I would have ZERO ammo for explaining why I bought a non-domestic car.

    Wow, 247 HP, that's pretty impressive. I'm sure it'll see the low 30s in MPG as well. All that said, it's really not my style...and it'll probably be near the SHO's price range.

    Top of the line one of these will probably be a little bit less, I'd guess closer 20-25k mark (US dollars).

    I'd still rather have the new mustang v-6 though. More horsepower and similar fuel economy.

    While I am a RWD fan, if you guys have trouble with the fact that this is a FWD vehicle, go drive a MazdaSpeed3 or a Volvo C30. You'll quickly see how fun the opposite wheels can be.

    I have no trouble with it being FWD, I just wouldn't spend any of my money on it , or a Mazda or Volvo for that matter .
