Diesel-Powered Ford Focus ST To Be Shown At Goodwood

The UK’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will host the unveiling of a new diesel-burning Ford Focus ST.

Ford’s new oil burner is targeted at the VW Golf GTD, and will be seen June 27 as the automaker reveals the gas-powered Focus ST as well.

Performance from the 2.0-liter TCDi engine is a claimed 182, and acceleration to 62 mph (100 kph) is around 8 seconds.

While North American plans for the car are at this point unknown, according to Just-Auto, Ford says quality improvements and technology are coming to the gasoline ST and other Focus models.
