2013 Ford Focus ST Long Term Road Test

2013 Ford Focus ST: Hoppin' Mad

2013 Ford Focus ST

Lay into the throttle in our long-term 2013 Ford Focus ST and you'll get a couple of surprises. The first is that, holy schnikes, this thing moves out. But you already knew that.

The other surprise is that if you give it the wood in first gear, one or both front wheels will wheel hop like mad. BAMBAMBAMBAM! And that's without even turning off the traction control.

I suppose the silver lining here is that the ST has enough poke to light up its tires just by laying into the throttle...
