2017 Ford Focus: Power & Performance

The Ford Focus comes equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that's mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The engine features direct injection, which is a fuel delivery system that reduces waste by pumping fuel directly into the engine's combustion chamber. This system even helps boost the efficiency, which simply adds to the EPA-estimated 25/34 city/highway MPG. As for power, the Ford Focus can deliver 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque.

Entertainment & Convenience Amenities

This vehicle features the SYNC® system, which is a dashboard-mounted infotainment system that allows you to access your media features using enhanced voice recognition. This feature lets you choose between the radio and the CD player by using your voice. You can even access your phone contacts with your voice while utilizing the Bluetooth® system. The vehicle also features an auxiliary input and two smart-charging USB ports that allow you to play external media devices through the vehicle's 4-speaker sound system.

Safety Features

The Ford Focus features an AdvanceTrac® system. This active safety feature detects wheel slip and actively provides brake pressure to prevent a further loss of traction. It also reduces the engine performance to help keep the vehicle on its intended path. The Ford Focus also features the MyKey® system, which lets you program a key for your teen driver. This key limits their maximum speed and audio levels, as well as prevents the stereo from even playing until every single passenger is buckled in.

The vehicle is also equipped with an advanced airbag system that'll actively adjust the inflation pressure to help compensate for the force and severity of the collision in an effort to reduce the risk of airbag-related injuries. The Ford Focus features front airbags, side-impact airbags, and side curtain airbags. This vehicle also offers additional protection with knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger.
