Ford Focus Fuel Efficiency & Performance

The 2018 Ford Focus gets an impressive EPA-estimated 40 MPG highway. Plus, with four engines to choose from, this compact, fuel-efficient sedan has no shortage of power.

To start, there is a 1.0L EcoBoost® I-3 engine with a 123-horsepower output. The Focus also has a 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® that works with this engine to provide smooth, quick gear shifts.

A step up from there is the slightly more powerful 2.0L Ti-VCT GDI I-4 engine that generates 160 horsepower. The next option offers a big jump in horsepower. The 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 engine produces 252 horsepower. Finally, the most powerful engine is a 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4. With this engine, you'll get 350 horsepower.

Interior for the Focus

The 2018 Ford Focus is made for your family. It seats five people comfortably with 43.1 inches of legroom in the front and 33.2 inches for passengers in the back.

There's plenty of room for storage, too. The Focus Sedan's trunk has 13.2 cubic feet of storage space. In the Focus Hatchback, you'll find even more cargo room since there's 23.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats. If you need more space, fold the seats down for almost twice as much room. The 60/40 split-fold rear seats fold down in to create a total of 43.9 cubic feet of storage space.

If you're ever carrying gifts for a surprise party and need to keep them hidden, the Focus Hatchback can help. It also features a removable cargo cover.

Ford Focus Safety & Technology

The 2018 Ford Focus brings safety and technology together on your dashboard with available Ford SYNC® 3 infotainment system. This system uses a touchscreen to tie together voice-activated navigation, SiriusXM® Traffic & Travel Link®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™. You can also sync your phone to the system with the FordPass™ smartphone app. With this app, you'll be able to find nearby parking, gas stations, and hotels.

The dashboard touchscreen is also home to some convenient safety features. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with cross-traffic alert helps you both when going forward and in reverse. In drive, it warns you if there is a car in your blind spot. If you're backing up, BLIS® will let you know if any obstacles are approaching from the sides.

Another back-up feature is the active park assist. It helps guide you in properly when parallel parking.

The Ford Focus safety features can help guide you in transit, too. The Lane-Keeping System alerts you when you start to drift into another lane by making the steering wheel gently vibrate.

All these features, along with the seven standard airbags, have earned the 2018 Ford Focus a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
