Changes to the Ford Focus for 2017 are minimal. There’s a new SEL package that includes 17-inch aluminum wheels with black sections, fog lights, black headlight bezels and a power moonroof. There’s also a new color called White Gold.
2016 Ford Focus adds the option of a 6-speed automatic transmission to the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine. Ford’s Sync 3 is a vast improvement over the previous system, with better voice control and a more intuitive interface.
About Ford Focus
Offering a wide assortment of trims (S, SE, SEL or Titanium), powertrains and price ranges, the 2017 Ford Focus sedan and hatchback compete in the crowded compact segment against such highly rated rivals as the Mazda3, Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic. Fresh styling, along with Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system and a sporty driving character are hallmarks to the popularity of the Focus, as is turbocharged horsepower. It starts with the extremely fuel-efficient 123-horsepower 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine in the SE. Then there’s the tire-scorching 252-horsepower Focus ST and the incredible 350-horsepower all-wheel-drive (AWD) Focus RS. If green is more your thing there’s also an all-electric Focus that challenges the Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen e-Golf and offers about 80 miles of range.
