In a highly competitive market segment, but the unique presentation of the new 2017 Ford Focus provides a lot of car for stimulating buyer interest. With a selection of performance-driven power bases, motorists are given the opportunity of selecting the car that will suit their particular needs and bank balances. The Ford compact Focus model has been part of the vehicle market since 2000. With the new generation of vehicles offered as feature-loaded sedans or hatchbacks, the motoring public is being tempted into taking a new look at the Ford brand, with the new 2017 Ford Focus a big drawing card! Getting straight to the heart of the vehicle; the new Focus has the basic car that is offered with the choice of a 2.0-litre I-4 that generates 160 horsepower with 146 lb-ft torque ratio. Alternatively, a 1.0-litre EcoBoost 1-3 generating 123 hp with a 125 lb-ft torque factor.
With the transmission, buyers are given choices, which for the 2.0L DOHC Ti-VCT GDI I-4 are:
