Performance and Efficiency

Engine technology plays a key role in the Focus, helping to reduce both running costs and emissions while delivering rewarding levels of power and performance. The line-up now includes 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol and 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine options. Both include Auto-Start-Stop, and fuel-economy figures have been further improved across the range. All the new engines have been designed to meet the stringent Euro 6 emissions standards. And a version of the powerful 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine already reduces emissions to less than 100 g/km CO2.

Features shown on this page may only be available on selected models. Where available, these features may be optional extras at additional cost. For more info, download price list to view current UK specifications.

EcoBoost engine

Get the most out of your engine

A version of the surprisingly powerful 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine will offer sub-100 g/km CO2 emissions: the first non-hybrid, petrol family car in Europe to do so.

Power and efficiency without compromise

The 1.5-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine provides low emissions and fuel economy… without compromising power and handling.

Diesel Engine

High-performing diesel technology

Focus is available with a range of diesel engine and transmission combinations with fantastic fuel economy and low emissions. 

Maximum cornering control

Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye.) Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road.

Change gears fast, with your fingertips

Normally only found on high end sports cars, Paddle Shifters are available with your Focus. This racing-inspired technology puts swift, effortless gear changes at your fingertips. And because the Paddle Shifters are mounted on the steering wheel, you can change gear more efficiently when cornering.
