Ford of Europe has revealed the wagon version of the new Focus ST.

The car comes with a 2.3-liter turbo-four engine -- that's up from the outgoing Focus ST's 2.0-liter -- with 276 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. That engine mates either to a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic, the former with automatic rev-matching.

While no numbers have been released for the wagon, Ford says the standard Focus ST hatchback gets to 62 miles per hour in under 6 seconds.

Interestingly, Europe's Focus ST also offers a diesel engine, a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit rated for 187 hp and 295 lb-ft. It is offered only with a six-speed manual.

Other performance features on the Focus ST include continuously controlled dampers, an electronically controlled limited slip differential (on the gasoline version only), upgraded brakes, retuned suspension and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

Compared to a regular Focus, Ford says the ST has 20-percent stiffer front and 13-percent stiffer rear dampers.

The 2.3-liter engine also has an anti-lag feature to help keep turbo boost even while the driver changes gear.

Of course, the big draw for many buyers will be the wagon's extra practicality.

The new Ford Focus ST goes on sale in Europe this summer. It won't come to the US, however, as Ford has decided to focus on more popular and profitable crossovers and SUVs, ending the sale of traditional small cars here.
