In the New Focus, the 1.5 Ti-VCT inline-3 is now the base engine that sits directly below the 180hp 1.5 EcoBoost.

Unlike the EcoBoost models, the New Focus 1.5 Ti-VCT with an automatic transmission uses a conventional shifter and hand brake in place of the rotary shift knob & electric parking-brake.

Here's thie link just in case the image is not showing: https://car2.autoimg.cn/cardfs/produ...AG80wlI787.jpg
Ford is going through major restructuring in China after a collapse in their market share, part of that includes cutting back options....so the 1.0 bit the dust.

It appears to be identical or almost identical to the European version.
Only one engine is offered, the 180 horsepower 1.5 EcoBoost (top gasoline engine in the Euro model) with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Is a pity USA wont get this car. Is a better option than the EcoSport. And the new Puma wont go there, either. Both cars are good option in a B-C segment. Better than the old EcoSport.

Re: 2019 Ford Focus Revealed

The real good news for us in Spain are the launch, yesterday, of the top-of-the-line Vignale version and the availability of the gasoline engines with the 8-speed automatic trans (available until now only with diesels). We can get, for less than 1000€ (1300$) more, a better equiped car than the Focus ST Line I was thinking in buying. Now, I can have the Focus of my dreams: A 2019 Focus Vignale 1.0 Ecoboost 8-speed automatic in Rubi Red color! The price of this beauty in Spain , with the finantial option with Ford, equiped with LED headligths (not the adaptable ones, only the normal ligths), all the driver assist systems offered by Ford, head up display and that beautiful leather interior is 22700€ (23000$) . A real bargain.

I don't disagree with this. If I got a new Mustang GT I'd probably get the 10at, because I'll always have the 5 speed in my '05 to bang through gears on.
