2013 Ford Focus ST: Dyno-Tested

October 31, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

Our long-term 2013 Ford Focus ST is now gone, but just before it left I managed to squeak in a dyno test at MD Automotive's Dynojet chassis dyno.

You can see the results and read the details here. The surprising bit was how inconsistent and increasingly knock-prone it was on the dyno. This characteristic was in stark contrast to the uncannily robust Fiesta ST that I dyno'd immediately prior. If I had to guess (and I do) I would say that the two cars' powertrains were integrated and calibrated by completely different groups.
