Europe is not a place to be if we wish to see Ford during an automobile show, even it’s biggest automobile show. According to reports, Ford is skipping a Geneva Auto Show in March.
A association orator told Autocar, a preference was done to bypass Geneva due to product timing. The automaker only wasn’t prepared to betray a new 2019 Ford Focus ST during a show, that runs Mar 7 to 17, 2019.
Ford skipping Geneva comes on a heels of bypassing a Paris Auto Show in October, along with competitors like Volkswagen, Ford, Nissan, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Volvo, Mitsubishi and Mazda, and some tip oppulance brands like Rolls-Royce and McLaren. Those brands paint 40 percent of a vehicles sole in Europe on an annual basis.
If not Geneva, where could Ford entrance a new Focus ST? The New York International Auto Show follows a Geneva uncover from Mar 30 to Apr 8, though that wouldn’t make sense, saying as a new Ford Focus ST is strictly not unfailing for a American market. That said, a 2019 London automobile uncover is in May, while a 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show will take place in a fall.
Speculation is a new hot hatchback will feature some chronicle of Ford’s princely 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, de-tuned to furnish about 250 horsepower instead of a 354 hp found in a Focus RS. As we reported behind in July, that 250 horsepower puts a 2019 Focus ST during about a same turn as a effusive version, that uses a smaller 2.0-liter EcoBoost. So, that guess could poke ceiling by a time it creates a grave debut.
Of course, there is a large doubt symbol unresolved over a Ford Focus ST destiny in America. In April, Ford suggested that it would prune down a North American automobile lineup drastically, slicing a Fiesta, Fusion, and Taurus from a market, while Ford reduces a Focus to a singular model: a crossover-inspired Focus Active, but even that appears on ice.
