2019 Ford Focus Sedan Spied, Will Be Imported To U.S. From China

The Ford Focus hatchback was recently spied undisguised and now we’re getting a better look at the upcoming sedan.

Caught undergoing testing in a unique comic-inspired wrap, the redesigned model has an evolutionary front fascia with a larger grille and new headlights. The model also appears to have triangular fog lights and a distinctive lower air intake.

While the styling on the outgoing Focus was a tad uninspired, the redesigned model is notably more stylish as it features a rakish windscreen, pronounced shoulder lines and a sportier greenhouse. Speaking of the latter, the third quarter windows have been eliminated and this gives the sedan a more premium appearance.

Out back, the Focus sedan has a longer trunk and bold new taillights. We can also see a wider third brake light and angular reflectors.

The Focus will be unveiled next month and it is expected to be offered with an assortment of turbocharged three- and four-cylinder engines. We can also expect a handful of performance models including an ST with around 275 hp (205 kW) and an RS which could have approximately 400 hp (298 kW). Rumors have also suggested plug-in hybrid and electric versions are in the works.

The Focus will be offered in three different body styles including a sedan, hatchback and wagon. We can also expect an assortment of different trims ranging from the crossover-inspired Active to the luxury focused Vignale.

The redesigned Focus will go into production in the second half of 2019 and most North American models will be built in China.

    I’m more interested in the wrap than the actual car.

    If by “comic-inspired” wrap you mean American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein ffs.

    very sad that after the last president gave billions to the american car companies they build cars in china and import them to the west.

    When is Ford going to give up the Aston design in front. Ok they owned them in the past but come on ford. The brand which was able to do a GT can do better job with vehicles for masses as well.

    A Chinese Focus? GTFO

    • Grumpy

      …right and i though having ford parts on my old Mazda was bad enough.

  • Grumpy

    The Camry is more american than this focus. Let that sink in.
