what are the changes from 13, 14, 15 focus st?

from edmunds 13 to 14
Ford hasn't added the 2014 Ford Focus ST to its Web site yet, but we've got the info on the car. Not much about the car changes, actually, and that's just fine given how great the 2013 car is already.

The 2014 Focus ST gets a new option for gray-painted wheels, and going this route also gets you red-painted brake calipers. This is a $375 option.

You can also get black racing stripes for the '14 car. Ford's priced this at $495.
from auto blog 14 to 15
The upgraded Blue Oval hot hatch still packs a 2.0-liter turbo four with 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque driving through a six-speed manual to the front wheels, so we're not expecting much change in measurable performance. But Ford has given the new Focus ST a new front suspension setup and a new electric power-assisted steering rack that combine to promise improved handling.

While it was at it, Ford has equipped the 2015 Focus ST with redesigned front and rear fascias, HID and LED lighting, 18-inch wheels and an improved cabin complete with a redesigned center stack, center console and front door panels, a new flat-bottom steering wheel and standard rear-view camera. Buyers will also be able to opt for a new shade of silver and black or red racing stripes as well as a heated steering wheel and eight-way power driver's seat

Quite a few changes. Obviously the 2015s have interior updates (gauges, steering wheel, console) and exterior updates (new front and rear bumpers, rear quarters, tail lights, hood, headlights, etc.). They also have different dampers (supposed to be better).

Early 2013s do not honk when you remove the key from a running car.
Mid-year 2013 brake change (size of rotors and caliper bracket, weaker pads with less dust).
Mid-year 2013 (or 2014, can't remember) front strut/spring change (different lower seat, aftermarket dampers only work with early 2013 springs).

2015s remove the puddle light option but now have added a rear camera.
