WISCASSET, Maine, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Each year, automakers completely redesign a few of their cars while other models go completely unchanged from one year to the next. Between those two extremes is a mid-cycle refresh, which automakers use to update styling and equipment while maintaining a vehicle's platform and general aesthetics.
Although the refresh of the 2015 Ford Focus doesn't generate the buzz of new models or vehicle overhauls, the subtle changes improve styling and elevate performance to new heights. Among the Ford Focus' many additions, it most notably receives an available 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine.
Wiscasset Ford, a new and used car dealership in southeastern Maine, is highlighting the advantages of the new powertrain option to inform its customers before the refreshed model arrives on the lot later this summer.
To help its customers know what to expect from the 2015 model, the dealership provides pre-release information on its website and discusses the benefits of the new EcoBoost engine. The 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine will be included in the Focus SE EcoBoost package, and although official ratings aren't yet available, Wiscasset Ford looks to the 2014 Ford Fiesta with the same engine for clues.
Despite the size and weight differences between the Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta, the Fiesta's 32 mpg city and 45 mpg highway ratings from the EPA are a reference point for those awaiting the arrival of the 2015 Focus.
The 2015 Ford Focus also receives an Aston Martin-inspired grille that is gradually becoming a staple of the Ford fleet. Other minor changes to the front and rear fascias enhance the look while new and upgraded interior equipment and tech add to the overall driving experience.
