2015 Ford Focus: For Its Efficiency and Its Technology

For 2015, the Ford Focus receives a new, more modern design in addition to the option of a particularly fuel-efficient three-cylinder engine. These two changes to the 2015 Ford Focus are added to a complete range of vehicles that actually offers a version for every taste and every budget. Better yet, the new Ford Focus is available with a number of innovative technologies that make it a vehicle that we love driving and that will delight technology buffs.

Priced from $16,799, the 2015 Ford Focus is available in hatchback or four-door sedan versions. The base engine is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. If we take a look at the power of this engine, we realize that it is superior to the majority of engines that can be found in the rivals of the Focus. Even better, with an average fuel consumption of 7.7 liters per 100 kilometers when we opt for the six-speed automatic gearbox, it is clear that we do not have to sacrifice power to achieve a reasonable fuel economy number. A five-speed manual transmission is also available.

The other option is the three-cylinder, 1.0-liter EcoBoost turbo engine developing 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. This engine has an average fuel consumption of 7.1 liters per 100 kilometers and is especially lively on the road due to the turbo that provides all the torque at just 3500 RPM.

Obviously, if you're looking for above-average power, you will opt for the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine developing 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. This engine, mated exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission, sets the bar with accelerations that are both dynamic and immediate.

Whatever model you choose, you will get a spacious and versatile car. In the sedan, the trunk is able to accommodate 373 liters, while the hatchback version offers 672 liters with all seats in place. If you lower the seat, space climbs to 1,267 liters.

Fuel-efficient, fun to drive, and offering several options to potential customers, the 2015 Ford Focus has much to offer. For more information, contact us today at LaSalle Ford.
