The Track Pack adds uprated suspension, brakes and tyres to Ford’s hot hatch

ford focus st track pack launched

The Focus ST is already one of the best-driving front-wheel drive hot hatches you can buy, as evidenced by the fact Ford didn’t mess around with its chassis during the recent facelift. However, Ford has now looked to cater for those looking for a harder-edged Focus ST with the new Track Pack option.

Not many will be able to differentiate the Track Pack from the regular Focus ST from the outside. The subtle styling tweaks include a set of 19-inch alloy wheels in black which are 10 per cent lighter than the stock rims and wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres. Elsewhere, there’s a new black finish to the grille, roof, mirror caps and a new black outline to the ST badges.

The Track Pack additions look similar to the ST Edition model from 2021. However, Ford says the new performance upgrades were tested extensively on the Nurburgring. Just like the old ST Edition, this new package is only available for six-speed manual transmission Focus STs “for optimised weight and driver engagement”.

The suspension has been developed with KW Automotive and is made up of adjustable coilovers and new springs that are up to 50 per cent stiffer. The ride height is reduced by up to 25mm compared to the standard ST.

Along with the tyres and suspension, the brakes have also been honed for the track with larger discs. They’re now 363mm in diameter (10 per cent larger than before), with Brembo four-piston calipers. Ford says the braking system should reduce “heat-induced fade during prolonged track sessions”.

The powertrain has been untouched for the Track Pack, so here we find a 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder producing 276bhp and 420Nm of torque. There’s also an electronically controlled limited-slip differential and to help keep you in place during the corners, the Ford Performance sport seats are also standard-fit.

The new Track Pack-equipped Focus ST is available to order now and Ford says first deliveries will begin from November.
