The Fusion-inspired facelift for the lesser Foci have already been revealed, but the shooters at KGP Photography have a new batch of shots of the overhauled ’15 Focus ST's front fascia. Behind the camouflage, there are signs of a more aggressive nose for the new ST, with some new angular flares intermingling beneath a version of Ford's corporate grille. The new face, which also shows a new chiseled and stepped chin spoiler design, will get a little more edge compared to the current ST's front fascia.
The prototype is also disguised at the rear, but those changes are expected to be closely related to the facelift already revealed. The ST's central rear exhaust is changed to a single pipe on this prototype, although this treatment is there most likely for simple testing reasons. Exhaust tips similar to the current ST are expected.
The nose on this Focus ST prototype likely provides something of a preview of the frontal treatment that will be applied to an even hotter Focus variant—the long-awaited Focus RS. While the RS has always been forbidden fruit for U.S. customers, we have heard many insider reports that the next Focus RS is expected to reach American showrooms in much the same state of tune given to the European market.
