2013 Ford Focus ST Long Term Road Test


2013 Ford Focus ST: Track Test

December 24, 2012

2013 Ford Focus ST

It takes some time to build a story. For something like a Long-Term Introduction we need to buy the car, schedule and organize a photo shoot, write an introduction and then find a time where it makes sense to "go live."

Sometimes, however, we buy a car that's too hot to wait around for. This was the case with the 2013 Ford Focus ST. We had planned to buy one anyways, but when we found out they were for sale before Ford had one available for us to test, we jumped and snapped up our $29,185 Tangerine Scream beast in record pace. We broke it in as quickly as you can reasonably break in a car and then got it out to the test track.

We'd been waiting to see how this car would perform since the minute they announced it. Could you blame us for being excited?

The track-tested was posted a full three weeks before the official introduction. In case you missed it, here's our official track-test of our Long Term, 2013 Ford Focus ST.
