2019 Ford Focus Changes, Specs
The original version was unveiled in the beginning of 1998 in Europe, launched in 2000 in North America and 2002 in Australia. It received 60 awards with 13 Car of the Year awards in Europe and North America. Currently, its position in North America is quite high. It was presented as the alternative or Ford Escort and Mercury Tracer but then it was revised in 2005 with the second model introduced for 2008 version. Now, recent reports mentioned about the new 2019 Ford Focus with the new design to make it different from the previous model.
From its exterior, it has bigger body compared to Ford Focus previous model. It can be verified from the stretched wheel arches around the back end and the altered solar panels. Besides, its home windows at the front and the back end have a gap between the glass and the framework which means that the teaser for 2019 Ford Focus comes with elevated width. The company will keep their focus as before that is about creating a solid compact car. It seems that they will support the current platform lighter for improved stiffness but have tougher global crash standards. We hope they will carry over the rigid body and great suspension tuning for it.
For its design, rumors suggest that it should go with evolutionary changes by keeping some important elements from the previous model. The cabin of 2019 Ford Focus will be completed with modern shaped dashboard. The changes inside will remind you to the feel and the design of the Fusion.
2019 Ford Focus Engine
The previous model only provided 160 hp through 2.0 liter four and 123 hp through the turbocharged 1.0 liter three-cylinder EcoBoost. The previous engine options may be retained even if they are possible to adopt a turbocharged small-displacement four-cylinder as the optional engine or to replace the turbo three to help the new 2019 Ford Focus better than the rivals, Chevy Cruze and Honda Civic. Based on the prototype, it has six-speed manual transmission and we believe that the comeback of this car will be completed with revised six-speed dual-clutch auto in the current model.
If you are looking for the new 2019 Ford Focus to make its debut, it should be ready in the next year before launching in U.S as 2019 model. It is expected to come as a compact sedan and hatchback with the starting price about $17,000 to $18,000.
