2015 Ford Focus Release Date
Here’s a quick trivia question: What has been the best-selling car model in the world for the last two years? Honda Civic, perhaps? Or maybe the Toyota Corolla? They drive those pretty much everywhere, don’t they? Well, we at Harbin Auto have a surprise for you; it’s actually been the Ford Focus, the sporty compact that’s taken the world by storm since its redesign in 2011. And now, we’ve gotten a first look at what’s next for the best-selling car prior to the release date of the 2015 Ford Focus. Let’s take a look, shall we?
First off, the obvious. The 2015 Ford Focus receives the Aston Martin-inspired front grille that has slowly grown more prevalent within the brand, seen already on Ford siblings such as the Fusion and Fiesta. This gives the front end of the 2015 Focus a rear-swept look, with large headlamps nearly extending to the front fenders. The overall effect is a front end that appears both sportier and more refined, a rare combination.
Also new with the 2015 Ford Focus in Scottsboro, AL, will be the availability of a 1.0L three-cylinder EcoBoost, that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission to deliver a thrilling and responsive performance profile. This can be upgraded with a new SE Sport Package, offering paddle shifters and updated suspension to create an overall package that is likely to rule the planet once more. The fuel ratings for the latest Focus haven’t yet been released, but it’s expected to best the previous model’s 40 mpg.
Inside the 2015 Focus, Ford has been coy regarding the specific changes, although we have received word that the MyKey feature will now be standard on all trim levels. There will also be an all-new heated steering wheel available, and Ford has extended the wheel options to include ten new designs. As with previous models, the 2015 Focus will be available in both sedan and hatchback styles, with a 5-door wagon introduced as well.
We expect to see the 2015 Ford Focus at Harbin Auto in the latter stages of 2014. To learn more about this exciting refresh of an extremely popular vehicle, we encourage you to visit our dealership in Scottsboro, AL, today!
