Towards the end of 2015, Ford will be giving the highly successful Ford Focus some nifty upgrades in order to complement an already great car. The potential Focus customers of Sydney will be waiting with great expectations for the 2015 Ford Focus LZ. This upgrade will consequently deliver a range of updated features designed to increase fuel effeciency and create a more practical driving experience.
In the base Ambiente, it is expected that the 92kW/170Nm 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol EcoBoost first seen in the EcoSport crossover and Fiesta Sport ranges may replace the naturally aspirated 92kW/159Nm 1.6-litre four-pot engine. A smart choice, as being a lighter and technologically advanced engine, should make the entry Focus Ambiente a pretty good option for the budget concious.
Delivering 134kW of power and 240Nm of torque, the mid-range Trend, Sport and Titanium models, recieve the lightweight 1.5-litre direct-injection EcoBoost. This represents a 9kW upgrade and a 38Nm upgrade from the previous model, plus expect some decent fuel savings also.
Finally, an upgraded 132kW/400Nm 2.0-litre TDCi will be the diesel alternative, which we believe will be the same diesel which is currently in the MKII Kuga.
The revised four-cylinder hatch and sedan range also adopt a variation of the existing corporate face featuring a redesigned headlight shape, fog-lights, bonnet, bumper and grille. Released at the Go Further event in 2013, Ford is unifing their line up with the now synonomus trapazoid front grille, famously coined by the previous designer of Aston Marton.
A significantly larger, higher-resolution and now touch-capable screen in the centre console brings a more sophisticated SYNC2 voice-activated connectivity system. While we are not sure if all models will receive the new SYNC2 system, we should at least expect it in the Sport and Titanium variants. Also new to the range are a three-spoke steering wheel, greater storage capacity, newly adjustable cup-holders, an easier-to-access glovebox, and a programmable key that allows parents and guardians to restrict speed and audio volume, and even completely disable motion, if their usually younger and/or inexperienced occupants are not wearing seatbelts.
In the coming months, more will be revealed regarding the highly anticipated 2015 LZ Ford Focus. City Ford Rockdale will be first to deliver the news.
