Ahead of official New York Auto Show debut.
After introducing the upcoming 2015 Focus hatchback and wagon at the Geneva Motor Show last month, Ford is now set to unveil the family’s sedan model at next week’s New York Auto Show. But already, we have images of the next-generation of the company’s best-selling sedan, leaked ahead of its official debut. The Focus sedan will share most of the hatch and wagon’s updates, including new rear lights, an ‘Aston Martin’ grille and other exterior tweaks.
Underhood, the facelifted Focus will be given Ford’s new 1.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine, producing 123 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be mated only to a six-speed manual gearbox, and promises to "raise the bar in fuel-efficiency among non-hybrid compact vehicles". The new model will also get a new SE Sport package, which adds body treatments, paddle shifters (for the automatic), touring suspension and 17-inch black-gloss aluminum wheels. Further details will be available prior to the New York debut.
