A big reason for the wins for the Focus and F-Series is their immense popularity with the aftermarket industry, with Focus and F-Series owners modifying the vehicles with custom builds. The highlights of the Focus lineup are ST and RS trims, with their phenomenal performance, excellent driving characteristics and sleek styling. The popularity of the Ford F-Series is also due to its wide variety of uses, whether it be for use as a powerful workhouse or a raging monster truck.
