What do you do to make the world’s best-selling nameplate even better? Well, if you’re Ford, and that best-selling nameplate is the Ford Focus, you give it a little makeover for the 2015 engine and stick a brand new EcoBoost engine under the hood. The result is something we at Hassett Automotive once thought impossible: an improvement on perfection.
The Ford Focus undergoes a slight redesign for the 2015 year. On the outside, the lines get sleeker and more streamlined and the design language shifts to be closer in conversation to that of other recent Ford vehicles. The hood, grille, and trunk lid all see specific changes. The interior is all-new, too—with exclusive and innovative color palettes, improved storage design and increased storage space.
It’s that new engine that really puts the next-year Focus over the top—or, more factually, promises to keep the Focus on top of the world. With an all-new 1.0L EcoBoost engine, the 2015 Ford Focus will once again raise the bar for fuel economy among compact cars.
“The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is proof that excellent fuel economy and performance can come in one package,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development. “Focus is already known for bringing together efficiency and fun, and our latest addition will bring consumers a whole new level of enjoyment – on the road and at the pump.”
