Ford has unveiled the 2012 Ford Focus ST almost two weeks before the Paris Motor Show will open its doors.

The 2012 Ford Focus ST will be a high-performance version, developed under the automaker’s global Performance Vehicles strategy and the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine with EcoBoost technology from under the bonnet will deliver 250 PS.

Besides packing more umpf, the 2012 Ford Focus ST will come with noticeable new elements at both te interior and exterior, plus the car’s handling characteristics have also been tweaked.

The 2012 Ford Focus ST will feature the Tangerine Scream body finish, an aggressive looking front grille, new rims, a rear roof spoiler, a redesigned rear spoiler with a centrally positioned exhaust tip.

The 2011 Ford Focus lineup shrinks pending a redesign due as a 2012 model. Focus comes as a 4-door sedan in S, SE, SES, and SEL trim levels. The 2-door coupe has been discontinued. The only engine is a 140-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard on the S, SE, and SES. A 4-speed automatic is optional on those models and standard on the SEL. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain-side airbags, and front-side airbags. Ford’s Sync voice-activated control interface for cell phones and MP3 players is standard on SES and SEL and available on SE. Leather upholstery and heated front seats are standard on the SEL and optional on the SES. Remote engine start is optional on SE, SES, and SEL models equipped with the automatic transmission. SES versions have a sport suspension.

For the first time, the complete global Ford Focus line-up of three production-ready dynamic bodystyles will be displayed together, providing customers with a full insight into this significant new model before it goes on sale in Europe and North America early in 2011.

Ford is also delivering on its promise to introduce a global performance version of the new Focus with a world premiere for the exciting flagship of the range, the muscular 250PS Focus ST. The dramatic new ST will launch in early 2012 and will be revealed on September 30 at the Ford stand by Alan Mulally, Ford’s President and CEO, and Stephen Odell, Chairman and CEO, Ford of Europe.
