Ok, time for predictions as far as performance stats go for the Focus ST. Be kinda cool to look back once they come out and see who was the closest. :p

My prediction:
0-60: 5.8 sec
1/4 mile : 14.4
Skidpad: .92 g
Braking from 60mph: 115 ft
Slalom: 70.0 mph
MPG: 25/32

What's ya'lls ?

I used Edmunds Inside Line for the 2012 Focus and 2010 Mazda stats and Road & Track for the 2003 Focus because Inside Line didn't have all the specs for the 2003.

What is surprising to me is how close the stats are between the Titanium and the SVT.

What I DONT see is folks looking at the curbweight on this..
I just wonder which curb weight they are listing when they say 3,223 lbs. Is it ST3 w/moonroof, or ST1 Base no moonroof? Most cars I've seen, there is more than a 100 lb difference once you add the moonroof glass and motor, leather seats, seat motors/heater, NAV, etc. And that can make a significant difference.

On the Honda Civic, for example:
LX - 2678 lbs (Automatic, No Moonroof, No Leather, No NAV)
EX - 2745 lbs (Automatic, Power Moonroof, No Leather, No NAV)
EX - 2767 lbs (Automatic, Power Moonroof, No Leather, NAV)
EX-L - 2778 lbs (Automatic, Power Moonroof, Leather, NAV)
