In a change of pace from the high-end vehicles that often appear in <a href=""><i>Jay Leno's Garage</i></a>, <a href="">Ford</a> sends its hottest hatchback (in the US, at least), the 252-horsepower <a href="">Focus ST</a>, to be featured on Leno's show. Accompanying the five-door hatch is its chief engineer, <a href="">Jamal Hameedi</a>.

Riding on stylish 18-inch wheels with summer tires and with a spoiler that doubles as a lunch tray, Hameedi and Leno walk us through the finer points of what makes the ST special, which also includes bigger brakes, torque vectoring, a manual transmission and, of course, 252 hp and 270 pound-feet of torque from the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which is made possible by 21 psi of turbocharged boost.
