MANITOWOC, Wis., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A few years ago, the technology available in the 2014 Ford Focus was reserved for the upscale and luxury classes. But since its redesign in the 2012 model year, Ford has found ways to offer many of those same high-tech features and amenities while maintaining the affordability drivers look for in the compact car segment.
With the arrival of the 2014 Ford Focus at Maritime Ford in Manitowoc, WI, those advanced features are on display for consumers. Perhaps the most impressive of which is the automated parallel parking system that allows drivers to fit into tighter parking spaces with more precision. The system uses ultrasonic sensors to detect the parking spot and accurately measure distances from other vehicles and the curb. Drivers only control shifting, accelerating, and braking, and the Focus does the rest.
Inside the new Ford Focus, drivers will discover the SYNC with MyFord touch system that includes voice-activated technology for hands-free operation. Once paired with your smartphone, voice controls are activated by simply saying "Bluetooth." After your device is synced, you can vocally request the Focus change its temperature, play your favorite song, start a new Pandora station, or even have it read your text messages aloud to you.
While those top-tier features give the Ford Focus an edge, it doesn't rely on niceties to catch the eye of consumers. The 2014 Ford Focus delivers one of the aspects drivers in the compact car segment desire most — fuel-economy.
With a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the 2014 Ford Focus achieves EPA-estimates of 27 mpg city/38 mpg highway/31 mpg combined. For more of a boost, an available Super Fuel Economy package helps enhance those figures to 28/40/33.
