    That was the car Ford should have given us, The new ST is a great car but I'm absolutely crushed by the lack of a three door.

    Yep, 2.3l with 350+hp is pretty much confirmed for the new one.

    I like the RS, and I do hope it comes to the states, but if I trade in my ST, it will be for a 2015+ Mustang GT with a Direct Injection Coyote motor. 3100lbs and 470hp sound like a VERY fun car indeed.

    The three-door isn't available here because the body shop in the factory is limited to producing 2 body styles at a time. Importing the 3-door from Europe isn't an option due to the cost.

    Ford actually stopped producing the three door Focus globally, it's no longer available in any market.

    The Fiesta on the other hand IS sold elsewhere in a three door and I will not forgive Ford for holding that one back.

    they'd have to re-engineer the chassis to make it AWD. Seriously doubt you'll get that stateside. But we'll see.
