2015 Ford Focus Sedan To Debut At New York Auto Show

2015 Ford Focus

The 2015 Ford Focus sedan will make its debut at the New York Auto Show next week as Polk new vehicle registration data reveals that it is once again the best-selling nameplate in the world for 2013.

Registrations for the Ford Focus last year were up 8.1 percent with 1,097,618 vehicles sold worldwide. A growing part of that increase comes from China where registrations were up 50 percent. One in every three Ford Focus vehicles sold is now in China.

The 2015 Ford Focus sedan and 2015 Ford Focus Electric will both make their debut at the New York Auto Show. The redesign includes a bolder exterior with a new hood and grille and a more upscale interior with advanced technologies, many as standard features.

A rearview camera will come standard with either a 4.2″ screen or 8″ screen on vehicles with MyFord Touch. There will be an available Blind Spot Information System and lane-keeping assist to further enhance vehicle safety.

The 2015 Ford Focus also gets a new powertrain option in a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine paired to a new six-speed manual transmission. This engine will be standard and will feature auto start/stop to improve fuel economy with EPA ratings still to be released.

Ford’s MyKey feature will be standard on all trims with an available all-new heated steering wheel and 10 different wheel options. A new SE Sport Package will be available on the 2015 Ford Focus and will include new body treatments, paddle shifters on automatic transmissions, revised touring suspension, 17-inch black gloss aluminum wheels and P215/50 HR-17 tires.

The SYNC AppLink system also gets an upgrade with new enhancements that include over 60 available apps. These apps will allow drivers to access real-time vehicle data, use voice-recognition systems, and have notifications read aloud rather than having to touch their phones.
