The latest-generation Ford Focus debuted in 2012 as part of Ford’s “One Ford” initiative—selling one car in every market around the world. This means the Focus is due for a refresh, and Ford did just that with the 2015 model year.
The 2012 Ford Focus was a spunky and youthful entrant into the compact car market. For 2015, Ford has taken the Focus and added a level of maturity it desperately needed.
Under the sheet metal, not much has changed. The exterior receives Ford’s corporate front end with the Fusion-like grill and thinly slit headlight assemblies. The updated front end gets rid of the goofy, gaping mouth from the previous Focus, making the Focus appear more elegant.
Inside, the Focus receives an updated center stack and steering wheel. This makes the interior feel more luxurious and inviting. A backup camera is standard.
Under the hood, the Focus will get Ford’s new 1.0-liter EcoBoost (read: turbocharged) three-cylinder engine currently found in the Ford Fiesta. The new engine will only be available with a six-speed manual transmission. No other engine offerings are yet available.
While the Focus has sold well, the refreshed 2015 Ford Focus will help Ford continue to sell the Focus is high numbers.
