Ford’s 2013 Focus is keeping in tradition with previous generations of the hatchback and manages to set the bar even higher than before. Undeniably, some of its edgy looks have faded away and some of its youthful exuberance has gone away. The first generation this ain’t. Not going back to its roots hasn’t curbed its […]
Blue Oval fans in Europe are actually in for a major treat as the next generation of Focus RS is now talked about in detail.

As drivers, there are very few opportunities when we find ourselves going “oh look, some policemen, how wonderful”. And that’s a general truth even when tickets or infractions are not involved. Just in case they didn’t receive enough hate for what they do, the British policemen are about to get some extra hot and fresh […]
British performance tuner Superchips is well known for tweaking various engines but unlike most such tunes, they don’t focus on high end stuff. Superchips offer tuning packages for what most of us would refer to as under-powered cars. Which makes it easy to understand why they chose this car to go with now. It’s the […]
Interested in buying a Ford Focus? We recommend you wait for the ST model and really get a thrilling car that doesn’t seem to have any practical downsides.

Yesterday’s leak turned out to be accurate. Ford has just confirmed the sort of pricing they plan to charge for the 2013 Focus ST.

Not officially, but as close to it as possible, the 2013 Ford Focus ST’s pricing documents have been leaked online through a forum of enthusiasts of the car. While we wait on confirmation from the Blue Oval we might as well come out with it, the Ford Focus ST is going to get a MSRP […]
Ford have just announced that the electric version of their Focus hatchback is about to make history in the popular sport of NASCAR. Before tofu eaters get to excited and, most of all, before rednecks are going to start beating their wives over how good ol’ fashin’ V8s are dying, the car won’t be racing. […]
Ford sales statistics, particularly in the US are the envy of pretty much the entire automotive industry and they’re not exactly shy about showing it off. There’s another statistic about the Blue Oval that isn’t so showoff worthy and is, unfortunately, what we’re going to look into. Despite Toyota’s leading PR issues last year, Ford […]
The Ford Focus has always been praised as the finest driving car in its class and though with this third generation model it’s been watered down even further, it still is. What makes it a bit of a shame is that in the US, the Ford Focus, regardless of sedan or hatchback body is mostly […]

The first-generation Focus was available in a variety of body styles such as three-door hatchback, four-door sedan and five-door wagon.

With the brand new 2012 Ford Focus coming in stronger and stronger with the ST version on the way and with who knows how many other versions just around the corner, some may feel their former top of the line model is left behind. Fear not you “poor” Ford Focus RS owners, the British working […]
Know about what’s the best hatchback out there? Forget trying to argue on this one, it really is the Ford Focus and despite going for a challenging look it’s still selling. The 2012 model year may not be the best looking one Ford ever made but even so, it’s making dealers panic about not having […]
We’ve seen news and advertising stuff from about the 2012 Ford Focus for a reasonable amount of time now yet the number of them that’s actually on the street is still pretty limited. To be fair, the Mark III Ford Focus has only been launched on the market at the beginning of last month, so […]
The 2012 Ford Focus ST model is being tested seriously and spy photographers just can’t seem to get enough of it so here’s another sampling. As we can see, the car is still wearing camouflage and even if it’s the lightest of versions a manufacturer imposes on soon to be released models it is still […]
It’s been quite a few years since Ford was the company that had sold two thirds of all the cars in the world and the sales hierarchies have changed quite a lot.

Ford’s cult car of late, the Focus ST is about to benefit from the facelift that’s already available on the majority of the somewhat duller lineup. The 2012 Ford Focus ST revealed itself in “close to production” concept shape at the Geneva Motor Show but since then, the Blue Oval has been tinkering with it.
While I’m not a big fan of the 2012 Ford Focus, mostly because its looks and yet I am aware of how many of them will be sold. The leadership of the Blue Oval is also aware of this and therefore they decided to have a word with their part suppliers about it.
At the moment, we’re pretty familiar with the eco friendly effect electric vehicles tend to have on the world. Ford however has set out to prove that their Focus EV is also pocket friendly as it offers some seriously low running costs.
