The year 2019 is definitely going to bring us many news and surprises when it comes to Ford’s models. According to the information our team has got and numerous spy photos of the new 2019 Ford Focus being tested, we can say that the third generation of this model is on its way to hit the American market.
The first impression that you will get when you see the new 2019 Ford Focus is that this model is significantly larger than its predecessor. Well, this is true, so we guess that the new Focus might be based on a brand-new platform. The platform appears wider and longer, but we have not got any confirmed information about its chassis yet. When it comes to exterior, what we have managed to notice is the refreshed front fascia that many would compare to the one seen on the newest 2019 Ford Fiesta ST. Namely, the new Focus will get a smaller grille with horizontal slats made of aluminum or chrome. The headlights will also be smaller and placed closer to the corners. On the other hand, the fog lights will be inserted further from the grille. Looking at the side profile, you will notice that this model has kept the previous design, although its long profile might be compared to the one found on the Fusion model. Things will be refreshed and more sophisticated in the back part of the vehicle, where we have spotted the slimmer taillights.
We must admit that there is a certain lack of information when it comes to interior of the 2019 Ford Focus due to camouflaged photos that simply have not allowed more. However, we have mentioned larger dimensions, especially the longer wheelbase, so naturally we can expect more space inside the cabin of the new Focus. In the current model things have been a bit cramped in the rear seats, but we believe that the next-generation Focus will solve this problem. Being a 2019 model, the new Focus is expected to be well-equipped with the latest infotainment and entertainment systems as well as safety and driver assist features.
The new engine that the 2019 Ford Focus will be hiding under its hood has not been announced yet, but experts believe that Ford will also continue to use two of the current options. One of them, found in current Focus, comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 160 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. The other uses a 1.0-liter three-cylinder Eco Boost engine that produces 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. There is also a possibility that the new Focus will offer a six-speed manual transmission next to its current six-speed dual-clutch automatic, you can expect also 2019 Focus Hybrid and 2019 Focus Electric version.
2019 Ford Focus Release Date and Price
The 2019 Ford Focus should be expected to make its debut sometime in 2018, but its release date has not been confirmed yet. The estimated price starts at $18,000 before options.
