2017 Ford Focus Style
This cool Ford cruiser features fresh exterior styling available in your choice of attention-grabbing primary colors. Several outer elements come together to communicate the Focus’ edgy, sport-inspired look including:
- A ground-hovering stance and sleek body lines
- Black or chrome hexagonal grille
- Inspired dragon-eye headlamps with halogen or LED lighting
No matter where you’re headed, the Ford Focus’ confident appearance is sure to turn heads. In addition to these shared features, the Ford Focus’ 10-trim sedan and hatchback lineup offers several trims that come with exterior accents of their own, like the new-for-2017 SEL’s standard moonroof or the sporty ST’s performance-inspired rear spoiler.
Power & Efficiency
The 2017 Ford Focus’ available engines and inner equipment provide performance that mirror its daring outer design. Two advanced motors are available in the 2017 Ford Focus:
- 1. The standard 160-horsepower, 2L four-cylinder engine
- paired with a five-speed manual or six-speed automated manual transmission.
2. The award-winning* 123-horsepower, 1L EcoBoost® engine
- paired with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
Regardless of which powertrain set-up you select, the Focus offers willing acceleration on tap that’s well-matched to its transmission, suspension and steering to produce a highly engaging drive.
Checking out the 2017 Focus’ EPA estimates proves that being behind the wheel of the Focus can be fun and frugal. Max estimates of 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway are excellent marks for the class.
