Turbocharged… Sharp Handling… European styling… Attractive interior… Filled with technology… Hot hatchback… Made in America? Most people would say an American-made car with all those adjectives is fairy tale material, and a few years ago, they'd be right. However, today, all those phrases fit together in the powerful symphony of the 2013 to 2016 Ford Focus ST. The Focus ST is a completely new model and gives the elder statesmen of the GTI, Mazdaspeed3, and Civic Si and WRX a substantial run for the money with its turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder motor churning out 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Even with all this power the car still manages torque steer quite well and now, owners of this impressive little American hatchback have a guaranteed increase the horsepower and torque with the K&N 69-3518TS Typhoon air intake system.
