We originally reported that Hertz would offer the ST-H in the United States based on misreading a Tweet. We were wrong. We're sorry and will do our best to get them to offer the ST-H since we got y'all excited. Redacted post below:
You better start learning how to drive a stick sooner than later, because the Focus ST-H is reportedly coming to America to shake up your rental experience with its golden wheels and stripes. The 252 hp Focus ST-H has been available in Hertz's fleet in a few European countries since 2012, but according to Roger Garbow , it's also about to make its way to America with its six-speed manual, Recaro seats and all other goodies that make it so fun . We all know that the fastest cars on the planet are always the rentals no matter what sort of engines they pack, but the Focus ST-H might just lead the way with its 2.0 EcoBoost.
Hertz calls the ST's category the "Fun Collection" in Europe. Indeed.
