2020 Ford Focus will avoid the bad destiny of the whole class of the cars that Ford is planning to withdraw from the market next year. So, as the opposite of Taurus, Fusion, and Fiesta, Focus remains on the market unchanged, with only a few upgrades of the engine and cabin equipment. There are chances that the manufacturer will keep the only sporty version of it, but those are not confirmed yet.
The 2020 Ford Focus will be made on the modular platform for small cars. The tensional rigidity is higher for 20% than on the current model, which resolve problems with driving and handling that all small cars have. However, sporty version could be spared of this change. We were able to see first spy photos, made on test driving in Nurburgring, and find out how it will look like. Our conclusion is that it will be almost the same, with the small front end, wide grille and short rear end as on small cars. There is more likely that lights will be changed, as well as details on the trunk and sides of the car.
Interior of 2020 Ford Focus should not be changed so much this time, and the equipment surely remains the same as on the current model. There is expected that the cabin will again have a color touchscreen on the top of the dashboard, as the part of the special Co-Pilot 360 Suite that includes all equipment which is needed. The cabin was very attractive and unusual dashboard decorated with chrome and modern buttons and commands.
The engine in 2020 Ford Focus will surely be new and not used so far. Instead of currently used 2.0-liter turbo-4 with 252 horsepower of strength, they will place smaller but stronger 1.5-liter turbocharged four-in-line with 275 horsepower of strength (or even more). The manufacturer said that this turbocharged model should be improved and made with new technology. The engine will be paired with the six-speed manual transmission, as well as the current model, but there are chances that the manufacturer will offer the eight-speed automatic option, too. The vehicle is driven on front wheels only.
2020 Ford Focus Release Date and Price
Surprisingly, 2020 Ford Focus will not be made in the US, but most likely in Germany or China and then imported to the US. The most likely plant for producing could be that is located in Saarlouis. However, the price of the model should not be much higher than the current price, so expect that it will be in the price range from $23,000 to $55,000. Along with base model the manufacturer will start with the producing of few versions of it, like ST and RS, which will be made next year. We will be able to see the current model in the second half of 2019.
