Offer 1.6L EB in the Focus

By Al M.

How about offering the new 1.6 197hp EB engine in the Focus in both the SE and Titanium trims and call it a "sport" model?  This would slot in perfectly between the standard 160hp normal 2.0 engine and the 2.0 EB in the ST.  This would give the Focus some more performance while probably offering at least if not better gas mileage than the standard 2.0.  Add in quick response paddle shifters and the new 9 speed tranny that's being developed and you'd have a sure winner that I'd buy!

I would buy a 1.6 Ecoboost Focus sedan today if it were available!
