The 2019 Ford Focus is going to be the fourth-generation which will be redesigned with this model. It is spotted wearing camouflage while testing on the roads in Europe. Release date should be set for 2018 with 2019 – year model. As we can see it is going to be available in all three body versions: hatchback, sedan and wagon.
Thanks to the fact that some spy images have been provided online where you can even clearly see the interiors, users can now get a clear idea on what to expect from the car. The hatch was never Ford’s popular model but has been reckoning ever since. Its main rivals are going to be Chevy Cruze, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Subaru Impreza, Mazda 3 and Volkswagen Golf.
2019 Ford Focus redesign changes
Just like on the previous models, body of the new 2019 Focus is well built. That was always Ford’s strong point. The cars made from their stables were always strong and powerful. Most of them had a clear line of build quality. Based on the images which are available you can see that the next generation of Focus will be longer and wider than its predecessor. These modifications will improve space in cabin and offer more comfort for passengers. This is especially good for large families who are particular on using hatch. The next-generation hatch features LED headlights and taillights. The square shaped headlights is tucked and nipped in a rounder shape. The air intakes and front grille are re modeled. They should come with a chrome trim.
The 2019 Ford Focus interior has not much to say except that it is based on the Fiesta supermini. The dashboard is now well designed and glad to see that the makers have taken note of that. Earlier models had a range of buttons which were quite out of the place. Good to see that a there is a large touch screen display which is provided on dashboard. The same can be said about the infotainment system too.
Ford Focus 2019 specs
We expect that the new Ford Focus 2019 will have a turbocharged 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine under the hood. In 2018 Fiesta that engine comes with 99-, 123- and 138 horsepower. We also expect 4-clinder engine and they also should be turbocharged. Diesel vehicles will come with the 1.5- and 2.0-litre units but these models are going to be available only in Europe. It is also rumored that they are also planning to release all-electric model. It is nice to see that the maker is serious about this model and coming out with so many engine options for users to select from.
You would want to know that the main selling point of the previous model was its ride handling. Drivers could just automatically have a smile on their faces once they start driving. Ford cannot depend on the ride handling alone and should take some measures to ensure that the Focus is a family car that can bring smiles on their owner’s faces.
2019 Ford Focus price and release date
The 2019 Ford Focus price is still unknown and it will be available closer to launch. The 2017 – year model comes with base price just under $20,000 for base hatchback while base S Sedan comes around $16,800. The Sporty ST-Line with active four-wheel-drive will be priced slightly more and it might be priced around $25,000, while top performance RS should come with $36,000 of price tag. The release date of the next generation of Focus should be sometime in 2018. But the biggest news is that its production will be moved to China while US factory will be reserved for North America version of Ranger and all new Ford Bronco.
