2013 Ford Focus

New For 2013

The long-awaited, enthusiast-oriented Focus ST hatchback, powered by a 252-hp turbo four-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual, debuts for 2013. The SEL model has been discontinued, as has the sport package for the SE. The Titanium can now be had with a five-speed manual in addition to the six-speed dual-clutch automatic.


Ford presented an all-new Focus last year, and the public has responded by making it one of the company’s most popular vehicles. Like the smaller Fiesta, the Focus is edgy and sporty, and it is available as a four-door sedan or a four-door hatchback. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 160 hp and 146 lb-ft powers S, SE, and Titanium models. A five-speed manual transmission is available only on the uplevel Titanium, meaning that the six-speed dual-clutch automatic will be the most popular choice. The Focus handles well, with little body roll and crisp turn-in, especially when equipped with the sport package (on Titanium models). True enthusiasts will rejoice to learn that the Focus ST hatchback is now available. The high-performance ST has a 252-hp turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, a six-speed manual transmission, a sport-tuned suspension, and a stability control system that has a sport mode for tail-out antics. All Focuses have seats that are uncommonly comfortable and a cabin that features a well-designed center stack and lots of available amenities, such as a rearview camera and Wi-Fi capability. The SFE (Super Fuel Economy) Package gets the Focus 40 mpg in highway driving. Speaking of fuel economy, an electric Focus recently debuted. It costs a rather pricey $39,995, although it is eligible for a federal tax credit.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; tire-pressure monitors; and blind-spot mirrors are standard. Programmable MyKey is standard on all but the S sedan. A rearview camera and a reverse sensing system are standard on the Titanium.

2013 Ford Focus St Orange Rear
The typical stereotype of sport compact drivers are males in their young twenties, many living at home, and deserved or not, a "Pizza Hut" or "Domino's" light-up display on the roof. But for the Ford Focus ST, the Euro-inspired hot hatch is attracting some of the most affluent buyers to the brand. The company claims 32 percent of Focus ST buyers are under 35 years old, compared to 22 percent for the Focus line overall, with an average household income of $127,000, compared to $67,000 for non-ST Focus models, and $107,000 for the Ford brand overall. Among Focus ST buyers, 32 percent are younger than 35, compared to 22 for the entire Focus line.
2013 Ford Focus ST Front Three Quarters View
Many of my non-enthusiast friends have asked me why they always see me driving a Ford Focus. They know I’m a huge car geek, and that I care about special cars. They don’t realize I’ve been a fan of the Focus since it was launched in North America in late 1999. As I noted in earlier posts in this series, I loved my daily driver Focus when I lived in England. It’s frustrating that many Americans see the Focus as a cheap, basic economy car. Given the features and available options, it’s anything but.
2013 Ford Focus ST Front Three Quarter
How good is the Ford Focus ST on the track? This street car doesn’t even represent the ultimate Ford performance series. That would be the RS, a line that relegates STs to step-up status from standard models. Rumor is that Ford will bring the RS version of the current Focus to the U.S., to become the first Rally Sport model sold here.
2013 Vuhl 05 04
If you're looking for something more unique than the KTM X-Bow or the Ariel Atom, Vuhl's new 05 lightweight supercar may whet your appetite. Powered by a version of Ford's 2.0-liter turbo-four EcoBoost engine, the Vuhl 05 is good for 285 hp and 152 mph. Enthusiasts may recognize the EcoBoost I-4 from the 2013 Ford Focus ST.
2013 Ford Focus ST MyFord Touch Boot Screen
It’s frustrating that many people in the USA continue to see the Ford Focus as a cheap, basic economy car. Maybe it’s a hangover from the small-car hatchback stereotype. Maybe it’s that Ford only recently begun to improve its image here. Given the features and available options inside the newest Focus, it’s anything but an economy car.
