The 2015 Ford Focus is the up and coming replacement for the model updated in 2012. We are expecting more evolution than revolution but are very much looking forward to its arrival.
As well as one of the most established vehicle marques in the world, the Ford Focus is also one of the best-selling models of all time. That means any changes Ford makes have to be carefully considered. Fortunately, all the changes we have seen so far hit the mark.
The exterior of the 2015 Ford Focus brings it in line with the automaker's One Ford strategy. The signature grille we love on the Fusion now adorns the front of the Focus, as do the angled lights and shaped fog lights. Down the sides and at the rear, the Focus is largely the same as before.
Inside, there are some revisions to make it more manageable. Or, in the words of Ford themselves, "less frenetic." From what we have seen, the entire driver's side of the interior looks calm, modern and ergonomic. The center stack looks deceptively simple and it's an overall restrained impression we get when looking over it. We think that's a good thing.
Under the hood, the standard Ford 2.0-liter engine remains for the 2015 Ford Focus. It's a four-cylinder that produces 160 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. New for 2015 is the option for Ford's EcoBoost 1.0-liter. That engine is good for 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. Both engines send power to the front wheels through a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
Trims and options have yet to be announced but we expect the 2015 Ford Focus to offersimilar, if not the same, trims as this years' model. That would mean threetrims, S, SE and Titanium.
The current Focus S offers 15 inch steel wheels, keyless entry, air conditioning, power accessories and CD audio. The SE adds 16 inch alloy wheels, auto lighting, cruise control, trip computer, Ford SYNC and steering wheel audio controls.
Opt for Titanium and you also get an upgraded leather interior, 17 inch alloys, fog lights, ambient interior lighting, heated front seats and mirrors, MyFord Touch, rear parking sensors, remote start on the auto, keyless entry and ignition and a rearview camera.
The 2015 Ford Focus looks like it's going to be a real contender to carry the Ford crown for another few years. The updates all look well-conceived and worthwhile, the price is still competitive and everything is now wrapped up in a more attractive package than ever.
