road, which is privately owned.
Mods include a straight(non-muffled) Exhaust, CAI, Intercooler, and much more. Supercharger is putting out around 17psi, compared
to the stock 8psi, putting out 224hp. Tons more planned, looking to have
300 at the wheels by summer of 08.
2015 Ford Focus ► Interior & Exterior Design
In addition to a host of styling and technological advances, the new Focus
will offer the remarkably efficient, fun-to-drive, award-winning 1.0-liter
EcoBoost® engine with a six-speed
transmission -- surpassing the fuel efficiency of the previous model, and
once again raising the bar amongst the competition. Twice already,
automotive journalists have named Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost powerplant International Engine of the
Year, for 2012 and 2013. The optional engine will be offered alongside the
base 2.0-liter GDI I-4 engine, which currently helps the Focus deliver an
EPA-estimated rating of 40 mpg on the highway.
The smallest engine in the company's growing EcoBoost family will increase the choice for Ford
customers in the United States, as Fiesta is already available with the
1.0-liter EcoBoost engine.
In Europe, where it is already on five nameplates, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost accounts for 32 percent of sales of
the current-generation Focus and 26 percent of Fiesta sales this year.
Robust demand for the 1.0-liter in Europe has prompted Ford to double
production capacity at its state-of-the-art plant in Cologne, Germany, to
more than 1,000 engines a day.
A package of sensors brings a new level of convenience for compact car
customers by adding driver-assist technologies including a rearview camera
and an available Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) and lane-keeping
Standard on Focus for the first time, the rearview camera will appear on
either a 4.2-inch screen or the 8-inch screen that comes with MyFord
BLIS uses two multiple-beam radar modules, the same used with cross-traffic
alert, which are packaged in the rear quarter panels, one on each side. The
radar identifies when a vehicle enters the defined blind spot zone and
illuminates an indicator light on the corresponding sideview mirror,
providing a warning that a vehicle is approaching.
Should a Focus driver start to drift out of the current lane without a turn
signal on, the available lane-keeping system provides a warning through a
series of steering wheel vibrations that mimic a rumble strip. If the
unintended lane departure is not corrected by the driver, the aid function
of the system actively applies steering torque to help the driver direct
the car back toward the center of the current lane.
