New Ford Focus revealed

Distinguished by its sleek and sporty design, the new Focus is packed with more affordable technologies and features than ever before in this segment. The next-generation Focus also offers customers the highest standards of quality and detailed craftsmanship, outstanding fuel economy, and takes the legendary Focus driving dynamics to a new level.

The new Focus has a modern, cockpit-style interior, with the stylish centre console wrapped around the driver and providing outstanding access to the vehicle’s major controls and display panels. Within the cockpit, the most significant innovation is the company’s next-generation driver connect technology, MyFord, which provides the driver with a state-of-the-art combination of controls and display screens to operate the key vehicle features.

On high series vehicles, the MyFord system includes an 8-inch touch screen, allowing the driver to control a wide range of functions via a clear and intuitive colour display. My Ford is complemented by a new generation of Ford’s powerful SYNC connectivity package, which includes a sophisticated voice control system, Bluetooth and satellite navigation, along with connection points for a wide variety of external devices and media players.

A key innovation in the new Focus is the new Low Speed Safety System, which appears in a Ford vehicle for the first time. The system is designed to help drivers avoid the kind of low speed frontal collisions which are very common in congested urban driving conditions, and operates at speeds below 20 mph.

Using a forward facing optical sensor, this system detects objects in front of the car and continuously (50 times per second) calculates the brake force required to avoid a collision. If the system considers that a collision is imminent and the driver is not taking any action, it automatically reduces throttle input and applies the brakes.

The comprehensive range of smart driver assistance technologies available on the new Focus also includes:

  • Active Park Assist
  • Lane Keeping Aid and Lane Departure Warning
  • Auto High Beam
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Driver Alert
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Alert and Collision Mitigation by Braking
  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Speed Limiter
  • Rear Seat Beltminder
  • Power Child Locks
  • Rear View Camera

Leading the petrol engine range is the brand new 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost unit, which is available in 150 PS and 180 PS versions. One of a completely new generation of downsized, high-efficiency, low-CO2petrol engines from Ford, the 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost is a lightweight, all-aluminium design which combines three technologies – a centrally-mounted high-pressure direct injection system, low-inertia turbocharging and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) – to create an advanced combustion system which brings new levels of performance and fuel efficiency to petrol engines in this power range.

April 2011

Focus ECOnetic announced

The vehicle is powered by a new 105PS version of the 1.6-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel which has been optimised for enhanced fuel efficiency, with a new injection system and turbocharger, enhanced charge cooling and further friction reduction measures.

The Focus ECOnetic also benefits a number of additional low-CO2features which have been developed specifically for this model including a unique aerodynamic package with an Active Grille Shutter, ultra-low rolling resistance tyres and a revised final drive ratio.

The new Focus ECOnetic incorporates the full range of Ford ECOnetic Technologies shared with other models in the all-new Focus line-up, including Ford Auto-Start-Stop, Smart Regenerative Charging, Ford Eco Mode and Shift Indicator Light.

The common-rail fuel injection system of the diesel engine has been completely redesigned, with eight-hole nano sac injectors operating at injection pressures of up to 1,600 bar, controlled by a more powerful engine management system. The new injection system delivers more precise control and increased combustion efficiency.

To provide more accurate control of the charge air temperature and to deliver a cooler, denser charge, the intake system features a water cooled intercooler in place of the standard air-to-air system.

Other new, or completely revised, features to enhance fuel efficiency include:

  • New variable geometry turbocharger design
  • Reduced engine friction from low-friction piston ring coatings and variable flow oil pump
  • Additional reduction in engine losses from low inertia vacuum pump and asymmetric crank sprocket design
  • Updated emissions system combining a diesel NOX-reducing catalyst with a coated Diesel Particulate Filter system.

Available with either five-door or estate bodystyles, the new Ford Focus ECOnetic will be produced for the UK market at the lead Focus manufacturing plant in Saarlouis, Germany. Market introduction is scheduled to be in early 2012. The existing Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi, which went on sale in March 2011, and is available across all series, emits 109g/km while returning 67mpg.

August 2011

Ford has introduced the Studio trim to the new Focus range, starting at £13,995, just in time for the 61-plate’s introduction in September. The Focus Studio will the starting point into the new Focus range, and is fitted with a 1.6-litre Ti-VCT petrol engine, which produces 85PS and is capable of 47.9mpg on the combined cycle.

Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler, air-con, USB connectivity, electric door mirrors, ‘Easy Fuel’ capless refuelling and ESP. Available as a five-door hatch, the Studio will be available in black, silver and white. The Focus Studio replaces the Focus Sport, which was a final run-out edition of the previous generation Focus, and is now sold out.

March 2012

Ford's first ever all-electric passenger car, the Focus Electric, was on show at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The battery-powered version of the Focus has a range of 100 miles and can be charged in around three to four hours. It will go on sale in the UK in 2013.

Although prices haven't yet been announced Ford says it will be a viable and cost-effective car. It shares much with the standard Focus with the same steering, handling and braking feel. The lack of a normal combustion engine means improved aerodynamics and of course less noise.

From its launch, the Focus Electric will be fitted with Ford’s advanced voice control, device integration and connectivity interface, known as SYNC. This includes features designed to 'enhance the enjoyment of driving an electric vehicle in the most efficient way' according to Ford.

The Focus Electric will be the flagship of a whole range of electric vehicles from Ford which will sit alongside the every increasing line-up of efficient fuel-saving ECOnetic models.

August 2013

Ford announced a new ultra-efficient version of the Focus 1.0-litre EcoBoost that was the first petrol-powered family size car in Europe to offer 99g/km CO2 emissions and Zero annual VED. The Focus 1.0-litre EcoBoost has returned 67.5mpg in tests thanks to its specially calibrated 100PS version of Ford's award-winning engine.

The new Ford Focus features Ford ECOnetic Technology including ultra-low rolling resistance tyres, unique aerodynamics under the car and revised gearing to help deliver the company's most fuel-efficient ever petrol-powered family car.

July 2016

Warranty on 6-speed dry clutch Powershifts now extended to 5 years. New Focus 1.0 EcoBoost 125 and 1.5 Ecoboost 150 automatics now come with a 6-speed torque converter auto. 1.5TDCI remains with 6-speed Powershift. 2.0TDCI autos have wet clutch 6-speed Powershift.
