Focus Technical Specification
A new, class-leading petrol engine that saves you 20% on fuel
The new 1.0 litre EcoBoost is available with 100PS or 125PS and delivers the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 engine, but uses up to 20% less fuel. That means a considerable saving at the petrol pump. Its diesel-like fuel consumption is thanks to a fundamental re-engineering, resulting in a faster engine warm-up and reduced friction, among other benefits.
A new class-leading diesel engine that delivers 83.1mpg
Its innovative 1.6 litre 115PS Duratorq TDCi diesel engine has helped make the new Focus the most fuel-efficient car in its class, achieving 83.1mpg. So you can look forward to rock bottom running costs. The engine also delivers class-leading CO2 emissions of just 88g/km. Both figures are due to a vast number of technical improvements, including a completely redesigned fuel injection system and turbocharger.
TDCi diesels. Now with improved power, torque and economy
Both the frugal 1.6 litre TDCi and the powerful 2.0 litre TDCi diesel engines have seen a number of technical improvements to increase energy efficiency. That means higher performance but lower CO2 emissions.
Ford PowerShift gearbox. For more fun on less fuel.
Combining the convenience of an automatic with the control of a manual, this six-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox pre-selects the next gear for you, so you don’t lose any power when you change.
PowerShift’s lightning fast, seamless gear changes not only make driving smoother and more pleasurable, but also save fuel and lower CO2 emissions compared to a normal automatic. This state-of-the-art technology even compensates if you find yourself in the wrong gear. For example, when you’re overtaking, it can drop a gear and give you the power to accelerate swiftly and the control to make a safe pass.
A re-tuned rear suspension for an even better ride
The Focus has a re-tuned set-up of the proven Control Blade multi-link rear suspension system. This delivers an improved ride, ultra-precise response and even greater feedback from the road, while also making the drive quieter.
Torque Vectoring Control for maximum grip
Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second (that’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye). Using this information, it repeatedly balances the amount of power and braking delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road. Torque Vectoring Control is a cutting-edge technology that comes as standard on Focus models.
Use up to 10% less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop
When the Focus is stationary, such as at traffic lights or idling in a queue, this technology automatically switches off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the air conditioning and radio). The moment you're ready to move, it restarts. It's ideal if you do most of your driving in town, as it can cut your fuel consumption by 10% (urban cycle).
A more economical way to re-charge your battery
Unlike conventional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it, and when it’s most economical to do so. For instance, when you’re braking, the technology converts the force used into electrical energy, to help re-charge the battery while you're on the move. This can help save fuel and reduce emissions.
Unique grille shutter for increased economy
With the Active Grille Shutter system, the grille vent stays open to cool the engine when you’re driving slowly, but automatically closes when you pick up speed. The closed position improves aerodynamics, which can increase fuel economy by up to 0.8% on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Over time, it can make a big difference.
Shift Indicator for fuel-efficient gear changes
A light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It’s a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
A smart info system to help you drive more efficiently
The innovative Ford Eco Mode system continually assesses the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption. The system reads your speed, gear shifting, braking and anticipation levels, plus the proportion of short to long trips. Smart software then advises you on how to improve your fuel economy, according to your unique driving style.
Focus Key Features
More powerful. And more efficient
Both models are powered by an advanced 2.0 litre EcoBoost engine, which delivers 250PS and 360 Nm of torque. As well as delivering an impressive 10% increase in power than the previous engine, it reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20%. A retuned exhaust note provides a constant, rewarding reminder of those significant benefits.
Technology that keeps you in control
The extra power at your command is always under your control. An innovative new, ultra-quick, ultra-responsive Sport Steering System enables you to take corners and negotiate roundabouts, without having to re-position your hands. You can accelerate through corners with maximum grip, thanks to enhanced Torque Vectoring Control, which constantly re-balances power and braking between the two front wheels. While the enhanced performance braking system reduces stopping distances and responds instantly to the lightest touches of the pedal.
Improved aerodynamics and enhanced interior
Developed and tested in Ford’s own advanced wind tunnel, the Focus ST’s streamlined styling delivers improved aerodynamics for less drag, which improves performance, handling and fuel economy. The cockpit now incorporates a sports steering wheel, distinctive trim and advanced Recaro seats. And because this is a Focus, there’s plenty of storage space, especially in the Estate.
