It's a 2600lb, FWD, affordable, fun hatch.... what 'merits' do you have for more horsepower, much less 50? Perhaps you crave torque steer and shredded front tires.. While 180hp certainly isnt high, it's modest and proportionate to the car. I'm sure Ford is being conservative as well in the sense that they don't want to dial the horsepower mark too close to the Focus ST. It has it's place in the market. If you want 50 more horsepower, buy a Focus ST..
