New for 2017
Changes for the 2017 Ford Focus are limited to a new SEL package that adds unique 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, black headlight bezels, and a power moonroof to the SEL trim. White Gold is a new exterior color for the 2017 model year.
The compact Focus have been around since the 2000 model year. The current generation is available as a sedan or four-door hatchback — previous generations were also offered as a wagon or coupe.
The Focus competes in the tough compact segment against cars from the U.S., Japan, South Korea, and Germany. Power for the base car comes from either a 2.0-liter I-4 making 160 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque or a 1.0-liter EcoBoost I-3 making 123 hp and 125 lb-ft. Transmission choices include a five-speed manual (2.0-liter), a six-speed manual (1.0-liter), or a six-speed automatic. The 2.0-liter is EPA-rated 25-26/34-38/28-31 mpg city/highway/combined, while the 1.0-liter EcoBoost is EPA-rated 27-30/38-40/31-34 mpg depending on transmission.
