2019 Ford Focus active: Ford’s last new car in the US
Except for the next generation Mustang, this will be the last time Ford introduces a non-SUV model in the US.
It will go on sale here in a bout a year, and will be manufactured in China.
They are ending production of the current Focus next month. (Which means there will be no new Focus available in the US for about a year)
For some weird reason, the Fiesta will be built for another year. The redesigned model has been on sale in Europe for a while and of course isn’t coming here.
( I just wonder who would ever buy a Fiesta between now and next year…)
The Taurus production will end in March 2019.
(Again, who will buy one now???)
We are not getting any other versions of the new Focus. Just the raised up “fake SUV” Active model.
While it looks like a Subaru Crosstrek, there is no word of AWD being available, ever.
So this will probably a FWD only car.
(Another big mistake)
As far as engines, Europe is getting 1.0 Liter, 1.5 Liter and 2.0 Liter engines.
While I think the Focus Active looks cute, I am not sure it will really work. Especially without AWD.
It will be compared with the Crosstrek, since it looks a lot like it.
And that interior is really not looking great…
What do you think?
