New Ford Focus Unveiled!

2019 Ford Focus

The newest Ford Focus, which was unveiled Tuesday, will be sold in the USA later next year, a Ford official confirmed to The Car Connection.

According to Ford, the Focus now follows a new design philosophy, while keeping the driving characteristics of the previous models.

The new Focus features a cab-rearward interior that makes space for a longer hood, making the new vehicle look bigger than its predecessor while actually maintaining the same overall footprint.

Ford has revealed the all-new Focus - and it will have some pretty cool technology when it arrives in Australia later this year. Depending on region and configuration, the new Focus is available with adaptive cruise control, adaptive front lighting, active park assist and evasive steering assist.

It features Ford's latest SYNC3 infotainment system with eight-inch touchscreen, Band & Olufsen sound system and wireless charging.

Ford says that it has worked hard to try and engineer the Active model with the same Focus "feel" that you'd find on other models in the range, despite the higher centre of gravity.

Standard Australian-market variants will be exclusively powered by an all-aluminum 1.5-litre EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The new Ford Focus is here – and Britain's favourite family car is now cheaper than ever

They expect the 5dr 1-litre EcoBoost will have emissions of 107 g/km, with the 1.5-litre EcoBoost starting from 122 g/km or thereabouts.

Ford's director of product communications, Jay Ward, tweeted on the launch of the new Focus this morning: "It's here!"

Under the auto works an independent front and rear suspension setup fitted with continuously controlled damping technology, a setup that monitors suspension, body movement as well as steering and braking inputs every 2 milliseconds.

Unveiled in five-door hatchback, wagon and (in selected markets) four-door body styles, the line-up ever is offered in the following trims: stylish Focus Trend and Titanium; sporty Focus ST-Line; upscale Focus Vignale, and the first Focus Active crossover. The car's also able to drive itself out of the parking space afterwards.

We'll have to wait to learn what will power the USA version of the Focus, but in Europe, Ford is adding two new options: a 1.5-liter EcoBoost gas engine and a 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel.

The Focus has always been the benchmark in its class for chassis control and the all-new model is expected to continue to legacy. The lighter 1.0-litre EcoBoost and 1.5-litre EcoBlue will use a torsion beam, which Ford would rather refer to as a twist-beam, but infused with Ford-patented force vectoring spring technology borrowed from the Fiesta ST. The new Focus also debuts a new 8-speed automatic transmission. "We'll tailor which cars in the Focus lineup we offer in markets around the world to ensure we best meet customers' different needs and preferences".

Comfort is key to the new Focus. The sportier ST-Line model starts at £21,570 and includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a body kit and sports-tuned suspension.
