2019 Ford Focus Teased Ahead Of Debut Next Week


The new model will be revealed next week.

Ford's 2019 Focus will make its global debut on April 10 and the automaker has begun teasing the next-generation model on the internet. For the past few months we’ve seen the model undergoing testing while wearing a stylish camouflage, but this is the first time we get a glimpse of the new car with its sheet metal exposed, giving us a new look at the reworked front end, wheels, and rear hatch which will now feature the word Focus spelled across the width.

The teaser video confirms the 2019 Focus will be offered with LED headlights, at least when it comes to higher priced trim levels, while traditional halogen lamps will likely feature asbasekit. We do know the vehicle will be slightly longer than the outgoing model and could be up to 110 pounds lighter depending on specification. It’s believed Ford wants to move the model into a more premium space, especially in Europe. Last year, Ford’s head of global markets, Jim Farley, revealed that the all-new Focus will move upmarket and sell in lower numbers than currently. Shoppers will be offered a wide repertoire of trim levels including the high-end Vignale and the popular ST performance model.

Stateside, look for sedan and hatchback body styles to be on offer. Moving beyond the ST, there’s no official word yet on a next-generation Focus RS for either side of the pond. Following its debut next week, the new Focus will go into production at Ford’s Saarlouis, Germany, assembly plant and should be on sale in Europe by this fall. Americans won’t get their hands on the new car until next year, with vehicles set to begin arriving from China part way through 2019. Additional models sourced from Europe are expected to join at a later date.
