"Ford and joint-venture partner Changan have confirmed they are preparing to launch a new sub-brand in China called Jiayue.Ford preparing China-only sub-brand - Leftlane
Jiayue's first model is expected to be a re-badged version of the second-generation Ford Focus that went out of production across Europe in 2011. Ford still builds the second-gen Focus in China but it hopes the Jiayue-badged version will appeal to a younger audience by offering a lower price and a different set of standard features.
Power for Jiayue's version of the Focus is expected to come from an outdated 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that will send 122 horsepower and 118 lb-ft. of torque to the front wheels via either a manual or a semi-automatic gearbox. A diesel engine will not be offered because oil-burning passenger cars are almost non-existent in China."
