Just about to reach the showrooms, the brand new 2012 Ford Focus can easily be characterized as one of the best cars that the American car manufacturer has ever build.
Why? Well that's not a very easy to answer question, so let's take it one step at a time.
First of all, the 2012 Focus will feature the brand new DOHC direct-injected 2.0 liter 160 hp engine. Moreover, the new engine will come with Ford's Ti VCT variable timing system that combined with the five speed manual gear box will offer a 40 mpg highway fuel economy. Also, there is an optional six speed dual clutch automated manual transmission, with Power Shift system technology that, Ford says, in can change the gears faster than the old ones.
With a sporty and dynamic look, the new Focus will also feature on the interior, the My Ford Touch system, the same as on the 2011 Ford Edge, Ford Explorer and Lincoln MKX, with a beautiful and clear eight inch display. Also, the driver will benefit from all sort of interactive systems like the Active Park Assist that sizes up a parking spot and steers the cat into it.
The prices for the new Focus will range from $ 16,995 for the base S model to about $ 27,000 for the full loaded Titanium version.
