The design of the 2018 Ford Focus is very impressive. This family car is in fact designed to look far better than the previous model. The new Ford Focus is to arrive in markets in North America soon. It is a much-anticipated car that promises much including high performance and a nice and attractive body design.
2018 Ford Focus Engine Specs
Under the hood, a turbocharged engine that is capable of producing 305 horsepower will power the new 2018 Ford Focus. Power will be transmitted to front wheels with the help of the Ford RevoKnuckle, which is designed to maintain high torque. It is also expected that a 2.3-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that is also capable of producing 310 horsepower and 320 pound feet of torque will power the Ford Focus. This is impressive horsepower that will translate into superior performance. This engine is capable of producing enough horsepower to ensure a very comfortable ride on all terrains.
Some reports suggest that a 2.0-liter engine capable of producing 160 horsepower and 145 pound feet of torque will power the Focus. It will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Another engine option that may be offered is the EcoBoost 1-liter engine that produces 123 horsepower and 148 pound feet of torque. This engine delivers 32 miles per gallon in the city and 45 miles per gallon on the highway and it is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. This 1-liter engine produces sufficient power and is quite fuel-efficient at the same time.
2018 Ford Focus Exterior and Interior
The design of the new 2018 Ford Focus is exceptional and stylish. The use of high tech technology when combined with superior design ensures a great driving experience. For higher power, Ford is offering an all-wheel drive version, which however is not the same as the one used in the Fusion and MKZ. Thanks to the front and back torque, the Focus handles exceptionally well.
The 2018 Ford Focus also rides on large sized wheels and tires and has nice spoilers that help to enhance the design of the vehicle even more. When the Focus was seen, it was heavily camouflaged but we did manage to notice a few things about the exterior. For one, the grille has a large sized bar in it and though Ford has done an excellent job of keeping the exteriors concealed from prying eyes, we can say that the styling is quite similar to a rally car styling such as is found in the Subaru STi and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. We think that Ford will introduce large sized fender flares and the spoiler at the back will also be quite big. This car is designed to look like a hatchback and it is also quite spacious at the same time having 23.8 cubic feet of space behind the seats at the back.
2018 Ford Focus Release Date and Price
The 2018 Ford Focus should be introduced into the USA markets in the beginning of 2016 or even towards the end of 2015. Everyone is eagerly waiting for this car, which will be a very popular one. Since Ford has not provided any pricing information it is hard to say what the Focus will cost. However, one thing for sure and that is that the Focus will use some very advanced technologies and that in itself should help to make this car a very popular one.
