First Look at the 2015 Ford Focus

By Ford Social Member

The new 2015 Ford Focus is being revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 24, 2014, sporting a new interior and exterior design and new advanced technologies. But we’re giving you a sneak peek right now!

The first thing to strike your eye will be the changes to the front and back of the car: a restyled hood, grille and headlamps, along with new taillamps. The sedan also gets a restyled trunk.

Inside lies a clean, modern look, with new seat trims for S, SE and Titanium, plus chrome detailing and a new steering wheel design and cupholders.

The advanced technologies we mentioned? The new Focus will be available with BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert. BLIS uses radar in the rear quarter panels to detect a vehicle entering your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If it detects a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, it sends an audible warning, a visual display in the sideview mirror and a signal in the message center. The rear view camera, which helps aid the driver in seeing what’s behind their vehicle by displaying an image on a screen as they’re slowly backing up, will be standard on Titanium models. SYNC® will be standard on all 2015 Focus models so drivers can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road by interacting with vehicle systems through simple voice commands or the available touch screen. That’s in addition to all of the great technology already available in the Ford Focus.

Two efficient engines will be offered in the U.S., including the standard 2.0L Ti-VCT I-4. It’s flex-fuel capable, so you can use either unleaded, E85 or any combination of the two. And there’s the newly available 1.0L EcoBoost® I-3 – an engine that’s small, but packs enough punch to satisfy most driving situations powerfully and efficiently.

“The stylish new Focus will deliver a complete package of appealing design … as well as the important fun-to-drive element our customers have come to expect,” said Barb Samardzich, chief operating officer, Ford of Europe.

The 2015 Ford Focus will go on sale in North America in late 2014.

We own a 2014 Ford Focus Sedan. We are very pleased with it.
It looks good, drives well, great Mpg. Have the 6 speed Auto. No issues so far.

I just don't care for the hatchback Focus styling, looks "weird" to me.  I do love the 4 bulb headlight like on my 2012 Fiesta!

would love to buy the focus wagon, great interior space and the same features as the hatch back and sedan. ford is missing the opertunity by not selling this vehicle here.

Once again, Ford will not be offering U.S. customers the 1 liter eco-boost engine with an automatic. And they wonder why the Fiesta with the 1 liter doesn't sell well here. Get a clue Ford!

I vote for the Focus Wagon. Any word on if they'll offer it in the US? I work in Dearborn and swear I saw one driving around the Ford campus.

I hope Ford offers more choices for the interior color for the 2015 Focus.  A light color choice would be nice besides charcoal black and the white/black, red/black offerings.  Either way, this car is on my list for possible choices for my next vehicle. 
Mark M 03/05/2014
Good looking car. I hope Ford will consider offering a Titanium trim with an engine option between the 160hp base and the 252hp st. Drove the new Mazda 3 with the 2.5 184hp powerplant and it is sweet.

Hey Ford !  My wife wants a sedan model, it'll look good parked next to my C-Max.  You know I gotta ask ... will we see a Wagon model as well?

I may hold off replacing my 2003 Ford Focus Hatchback until the new model is on sale in the US.
Greg Phillips 02/28/2014
I was really hoping for a 2 door hatchback, although I'd be happy with the current car with the new interior.
Tyler L 02/27/2014
I wish the 1 liter Ecoboost was flex fuel as well. I think it's great that the Focus is the only compact car with a flex fuel powertrain.

Please allow Americans to buy a Focus wagon. The hatchback is too short on the back end. I have been hanging on to my 01 Focus wagon hoping that Ford would wise up and give us true consumer choice by making the wagon available.

Herman C - Agreed on offering the 1.5EB in the Focus.  It would slot perfectly HP and torque wise between the NA 2.0 and the ST.  They could call it the sport model.

I hope that the reference in the article to "new seat trims" means more color choices in cloth and it being available on the Titanium trim as not everyone want leather, real or faux.

I also hope this is one of the first vehicles to off the QNX software running the Sync and MFT as it should be an improvement over the buggy Microsoft software.

When can we get the Focus diesel wagon in the U.S.?  That would be my choice!
Aimee McMurry 02/24/2014
I love the new Focus! I drive a 2007 Focus but I was considering a switch to a different maker of car because I wanted a sportier car but Hello Ford! Looks like I can get that here now! Awesome!!!

The car looks great! Only disappoinment is not update transmissions and no 1.5/1.6 Ecoboost, at least not for the US.
