Ford recently released a promo video for the upcoming Ford Focus RS. Gearheads shouldn’t have any trouble watching it. They’ve already know they’re getting the new Focus RS. The people that are really in danger are the ones who won’t suspect how enticing and fun the Focus RS looks as it handily negotiates the harsh curves in a mountain road with ease, almost abandon. It appears…irresistible.
It’s not surprising that a winding mountain road was the chosen venue for exhibiting the new Ford Focus RS. The compact sportster was made for them. In the Ford Focus RS promo video, the Focus seems to literally grab the road with the help of the Dynamic Torque Vectoring. Suspension has been updated this time around and the Focus also has a ride height that’s been lowered to reduce drag.
But you aren’t going to appreciate those handling and suspension features without a strong powertrain to get the Focus up to speed. That’s provided by a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, good for 316 horsepower. Mountain roads beware.
The Ford Motor Company simply could not wait to get their hands on the new full year of Polk data from 2013. It’s something they—along with us here at Cambridge Classic Ford—have been waiting for the way kids wait for Christmas morning. And just like Christmas morning, the wait was totally worth it: Ford analyzed the data from IHS Automotive and came to the conclusion that, once again, the Ford Focus is the best-selling car across the globe.
Sales of the Focus actually rose 8.1% over 2012 sales, and Ford moved a total of 1,097,618 units of the compact passenger car over the 2013 calendar year. “It is remarkable to see Focus again lead the industry as the No. 1-selling vehicle nameplate on the planet,” said Jim Farley, an executive vice president for Ford.
And just how do you celebrate your victory cementing you as king of the hill for another year, despite fiercer competition than ever before? If you’re the Blue Oval, you design a whole new Focus, ready to dominate the world’s new car markets for another generation. “With the new car, we’ve raise the bar again, showcasing Ford’s commitment to continuous improvement—adding better technology for drivers and a sleeker, more modern exterior across the entire Focus family,” added Farley.
The next-generation Focus will also feature a new engine, a 1.0L EcoBoost offering designed to raise the car’s already outstanding fuel efficiency to an entirely new level. Stay tuned to our blog for more information about the Focus, both the current and future generations, very soon!
With college graduation upon us, many new grads will be venturing into the new car market. To help these students, and possibly their parents, make a wise decision on a car that is stylish and fits their needs, but is also affordable, Total Car Score has released a list of the top cars for college grads. The 2012 Focus has made the list.
Total Car Score is a car comparison website and comprehensive auto rating system that assigns a Total Car Score (TCS) to every vehicle in the market based on car reviews from all major automotive authorities. According to Editor-in-chief Karl Brauer, “College grads are looking to make an investment in a car that is reliable and cost conscious.” Therefore, the list of the top cars for college grads is comprised of the top-rated cars that offer the best quality while also being very affordable, meaning the MSRP starts at under $25,000.
The Ford Focus earned a spot on the list for its controlled ride, excellent steering, sporty handling, and impressive fuel economy. In total, the 2012 Focus earns a TCS of 82.01 and starts as low as $16,500. According to Total Car Score, “With the 2012 Focus, Ford shows that small cars don’t have to feel so banal, with charismatic compacts that are more satisfying to drive, more luxurious, and better equipped.”
To make the Focus an even better deal for 2012 graduates, Ford offers special savings to college students and recent grads through the College Student Purchase Program!
