All-new Ford Focus to hail from Germany and will feature brand new drivetrains and driver assistance technology
Ford Australia has revealed initial details for it’s the all-new Ford Focus. New from the ground up, the Focus range will be built in Germany, and technologies such as Autonomous Emergency Braking with Night-time Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection will be standard across the range, along with Lane Keep Assist.
Adaptive cruise with automatic stop and go is now available as an option on all models, as is Evasive Steering Assist, a system that helps drivers avoid a collision. Blind Spot Monitoring and rear cross traffic alert are also available as options.
The new Ford Focus will be available with two key new engines: an entry level naturally aspirated 1.5 litre three-cylinder unit and a new 1.5 litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine and both will be mated to a conventional eight-speed automatic. That dreadful dual-clutch transmission is well and truly dead and buried.
It is believed hatch, wagon and sedan variants will be available, along with a high-riding SUV-style model.
Further details on the all-new Ford Focus range will be revealed closer to local launch, and sales will commence in late 2018.
