Ford has officially revealed the 2015 Focus, boasting an all-new front end and adding a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine to its lineup.
The Focus actually made its debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry. It will however make its auto show debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. In the Fiesta, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is a three-cylinder powerplant with 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque, which will likely be the same specifications in the Focus. Unfortunately, Ford didn’t confirm those specs yet but did announce that it’ll only be available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Standard on the Focus for the first time is a rearview camera which will appear on either a 4.2-inch screen or the 8-inch screen that comes with MyFord Touch-equipped cars. Other new technologies in the 2015 Focus include Blind Sport Information System (BLIS) and lane-keeping system.
“We have taken the title of world’s best-selling nameplate to impressive new heights with the redesigned Focus,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford executive vice president and president of The Americas. “Its combination of compelling, modern design and the most high-tech interior in the class will appeal to contemporary consumers who desire a small car with very sophisticated features. What makes Focus so attractive to consumers today – being great to drive, delivering exceptional fuel economy and value, and offering leading-edge in-car technologies – is amplified with the new Focus.”
