The 2012 Ford Focus will get a 1.0L 3-Cylinder Ecoboost engine, but it will only be offered in the North American market. Ford says that the motor will make 118 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque at just 1300 rpm.

An overboost feature will provide short bursts of up to 147 lb-ft of torque, while the flywheel and front pulley are designed to reduce vibrations without the need for a balance shaft. Ford says that the engine will also be used on the European C-Max van and the B-Max crossover.

    For a 1.0 Liter engine, 118 HP & 125 TQ @ 1300rpm is quite impressive. Maybe this will be the next ultimate commuter car?

    It makes no difference to me what ford makes as after receiving millions of dollars from the goverment out of the tax payers pockets they shut down a plant in Ontario. I hope that Canadians stop buying anything made by ford for doing this and if it was up to me we would seize the plant and everything in it untill the money they have receved over the last 50 years was paid back to us.
