Re: New Focus to arrive by the end of 2018.

Hopefully the US gets the 1.5 Ecoboost as well, drove the 1.0 and the current Focus is just to heavy for it. Hopefully the next get loses some weight though. Not sure why they would drop the 2.0, thats got to be cheaper than the Ecoboost, plus it's not a bad little motor.

Biggest issue is the transmission. They need to rework the DCT or drop it all together, I think all the complaints and rebuilds in some cases have hurt sales.

The naturally aspirated 2.0-liter I guess has become redundant that in Asia-Pacific, Ford replaced it with the 1.5 EcoBoost.
Price increase is minimal, but performance has improved and it gets a torque converter automatic instead of the dual-clutch transmission which has gained a bad reputation.

Re: New Focus to arrive by the end of 2018.

a 1.5L GTDI would be perfect in the Focus.

Every sub-$50,000 car on the market will have to answer to the Ford from now on, no matter what badge it brings to the table.

At least in North America, this is Ford's last chance in the C segment. More problems like the current generation's transmission and cramped interior, and the North American Focus will go the way of the Dodge Dart.

That's what Ford also thinks, at least outside North America.

Meh, the Nth American market is not that resolute, Focus has passed its used by date and is now suffering against newer competitors. Cruze and Focus sales were neck and neck before NG Cruze arrived, we should expect a similar lift in sales when Ford eventually delivers its NG Focus.

Too late in America. And very too late in Europe
