Ford Focus ST buyers in UK now have the option of getting more power from their vehicle, courtesy of a performance upgrade from engine tuners Mountune.
The Mountune MP275 will cost an additional £1,195 (including VAT) and will take an additional two hours to fit. The upgrade increases the 2.0-litre EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine’s power output from 250 PS (266 hp) to 275 PS (271 hp) and peak torque from 345 Nm to 400 Nm. The upgrade does not void warranty when fitted by a Ford dealer.
The elevation of the output figures is due to the addition of a large capacity alloy intercooler, low-loss cast crossover duct with silicone hose, high-flow dual-entry air filter and specially developed performance-map calibration.
The Focus ST five-door already comes with ST body styling, 18-inch alloy wheels, Recaro sports seats at the front, DAB radio and Ford SYNC that supports voice control and Bluetooth.
Sharing his thoughts, Kevin Griffin, Ford of Britain sales director said: “The 2015 Focus ST 275PS upgrade is the latest addition to a wide range of Ford Performance parts and accessories from Ford dealers. It enables Focus ST owners to experience even more impressive performance, while offering the reassurance that the upgrade will not affect warranties.” The Ford Focus ST is priced from £22,495.
