A prototype of the 2014 Ford Focus ST facelift has been caught undergoing testing and wearing camouflage only on the front fascia.

A prototype of the 2014 Ford Focus ST facelift has been caught undergoing testing and wearing camouflage only on the front fascia.

After the new Mondeo/Fusion and facelifted Fiesta received the Aston Martin-ish front grille, time has come for the third-gen Focus to get the same treatment. Seen here is the warm Focus ST judging by the centrally-positioned exhausts, larger alloys and bigger side skirts. Aside from the more generous front grille, the Focus / Focus ST will look virtually the same as the pre-facelift model.

The revised Focus lineup is expected to go on sale in the first part of next year so look for a public unveiling before the end of 2013. We won't be surprised if the Blue Oval marque will decide to bring the car at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show.
