About stronger Turbo manoeuvring four-cylinder. A the 250 to 270-horsepower Focus ST is likely to be set as a successor to the 350 HP strong four-wheel drive Focus RS. What relates to the self-detonator, is the current Focus with 1.5 and 2.0 Liter displacement and 95 to 185 horsepower on the road. With a little Tuning of performance and fuel consumption remain relatively unchanged in the next round.
