Ford Focus: A Fuel-Conscious Choice
The base engine of the Focus gets an EPA-estimated 25 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway, making it a fuel-conscious choice for drivers looking to spend less money (and time) at the pump. The available 3-cylinder engine in higher trims provides even better fuel economy, clocking in at 30 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway.
The standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is perfect for daily driving to work and for running errands, delivering 159 horsepower. The 2.0L EcoBoost® engine in the ST trim delivers a more powerful 252 horsepower drive and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Yes—there are plenty of engine options on each 2018 Focus trim!
Infotainment and Fun Stuff
The Focus comes with an infotainment system equipped with Bluetooth® technology, perfect for making calls or playing music from your smartphone. A standard rearview camera makes it easy for you to back up without having to look over your shoulder. The infotainment screen display shows you what’s going on behind the car as you back up.
Intelligent Access is an available feature in the Ford Focus. With this push-button start technology, you can keep your key fob in your pocket, touch the door handle to open it, and start the car by holding down the brake and pressing the start button. It’s that easy to start navigating the open roads in your 2018 Ford Focus.
Driver Assistive Technologies
The driver assistive technologies available in the Focus take out a lot of the guesswork of driving and provide assistance when you need it. For instance, when you need to parallel park, the active park assist can steer you into the spot while you control the accelerator and brake pedal.
The Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert gives you a warning if a vehicle is in your blind spot while the car is in forward motion, or is near the side of your car when putting it in reverse. Lane Keeping Assist alerts you with a gentle vibration of the steering wheel and guides the car back to the lane if any drifting is detected.
