New Ford Focus for New Zealand
Ford New Zealand will bring the most advanced, highly equipped and freshly styled Ford Focus to New Zealand customers in late 2018. The new Germanmade Ford Focus will bring the latest safety, technology and European sophistication to New Zealanders looking for a dynamic, practical passenger car. “The Ford state-of-the-art plant in Germany will become the single-source for our entire Focus range,” said Ford New Zealand managing director, Simon Rutherford. “Judging from the highly-sophisticated and praised Fords from the same plant, current Focus ST and Focus RS models, it’s going to mean great things for the entire line.” The all-new Ford Focus continues the tradition of being a ground-breaking, standard setting vehicle in terms of safety, technology and value for money by offering a host of advanced features in a stylish package. Under the bonnet is a choice of the entry level 1.5 litre, three-cylinder or a 1.5-litre turbocharged Ecoboost, threecylinder engine with cylinder deactivation. A new intelligent eight-speed torque convertor automatic transmission will also feature.
