Every version bar the top spec Wildtrak has the option of the 2.3 or the 2.7, with the top version 2.7 only. None have a 2.0 ‘liter’ (in US parlance).

Only in Rangers. And for how long? It really doesn’t make economical sense for it to continue much longer.

They have to introduce a hybrid of some form sooner rather than later with the next step of emissions legislation moving the goal posts again. When they do there’s a good chance the RS could be back in the fold.

Still not heard anything about mine yet; 7 months since I ordered it and “potential” July build looks more and more unlikely. That said, loads more people will be in the same boat so I’m not complaining.

Are you confident they are going to honour it? Seen loads of people who were prepared to be strung along get dropped like a ton if bricks many month’s later during the last VAG shortage a few years ado. Was in BSM getting mine serviced the other day and the guy their didn’t think they would return in their current form, he thought they would most likely be a hybrid. I don’t know, probably more likely they will drop them altogether. They effectively already have as they are not available and haven’t been nearly all year.

Can I ask why you have you waited this long? The options are minimal and all variations were available for immediate delivery until fairly recently, still a handful of old stock available.

Yes, I could have had one of the old stock but figured if I was going to have one I wanted a white one with the new digital display and a panoramic roof. Those three things limit the choice of old stock so I thought I’d have a brand new one. Of course I didn’t realise I would have to wait quite as long as this......

Ordered my focus st 3(limited edition model in aus) in Australia 2 months ago and still no updates. It was expected to be october arrival but not holding my breath. Test drove the Hyundai i30 n (face lift) yesterday which are really popular in Australia but still think the ST is better all round .
