2015 Ford Focus review

Power

The 2015 Ford Focus offers several engine options for the many buyers the vehicle attracts. So whether you’re looking for lots of power, a fuel-efficient engine, or the fun of a small engine, the Focus has something for you. The following are the engine options you can get with the new Focus:
 

2.0-liter Ti-VCT I-4 Flex Fuel engine with an EPA rating of 26 city and 36 highway mpg with a five-speed manual transmission and 26 city and 40 highway mpg with the six-speed Powershift automatic transmission. This engine produces 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque.


1.0-liter T-VCT EcoBoost I-3 with Start Stop with an EPA rating of 30 city and 42 highway mpg with a six-speed manual transmission and 29 city and 40 highway mpg with the six-speed manual and SE EcoBoost Package. This engine produces 123 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque.


107-kW Permanent Magnet Electric Traction Motor with an EPA rating of 110 city and 99 highway MPGe.


2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine with an EPA rating of 23 city and 32 highway mpg with a six-speed manual transmission. This engine produces 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque.

 

Handling

The 2015 Ford Focus is both fun to drive and comfortable to ride in. But how exactly does that happen in such a small vehicle? It’s easy when you consider what’s going on beneath the surface:
 

Independent MacPherson strut-type with rear stabilizer bar front suspension and fully independent control blade SLA with stabilizer bar rear suspension.


Hydraulic gas-pressurized front and rear shocks.


Electric power assist rack-and-pinion steering.

 

These features are standard for all models aside from the ST hatch, which has gas-charged hydraulic shocks, variable ratio electric power assist rack-and-pinion steering, and independent short-and-long arm with one upper and two lower control arms rear suspension. These combine to assist the vehicle in producing the same great ride with higher power.

 

Technology

The 2015 Ford Focus wouldn’t be as awesome as it is without all of its technology. Between technology for entertainment and technology for comfort, the 2015 Ford Focus has it all. But what makes it so loved really?
 

The standard rearview camera lets you see everything you need to see while you’re backing out of your driveway in Muscatine.


Available SYNC with MyFord Touch lets you keep your eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel with the available voice-activated technology.
