The names Ford and ROUSH Performance go together like Mercedes-Benz and Brabus, with the former being known for a partnership that has often resulted in seriously upgraded Mustangs. ROUSH has performed upgrades to other Ford models as well. Though for some time, the tuner took a small hiatus to focus on their specialty, until recently.
ROUSH Performance officially announced their re-entry into production modifications for the future small car market, specifically with the new Ford Focus and Focus ST models.
The first result are new cold air intake and exhaust systems for the aforementioned models, including the all-new 2013 Ford Focus ST with the EcoBoost engine.
Pricing hasn’t been officially announced, but a press release was provided along with a teaser video. Check it out after the jump.
