Five new Focus cars have been revealed for 2017.
The 2018 Focus will be the first car in the brand’s history to be made entirely out of aluminium.
While Ford has been pushing its aluminium Focus since 2012, the first one to feature it was the 2019 Ford Focus Hatchback.
“It’s the first Focus car ever to be built entirely out-of-aluminium,” said the company’s global brand manager.
Ford also revealed a new Focus hatch, a model which will be a direct competitor to the Focus Hatch.
It will feature a body that’s also aluminium, with a carbon fibre roof, the same as the 2019 Focus hatch.
That car has been confirmed to be the Focus Card, and will be made up of aluminium as well.
But, while the 2018 Focus Hatch will feature an aluminium body, the Focus Cards are built entirely of aluminium, as the brand says it’s “more than a ‘car'”.
Ford has been a firm supporter of aluminium cars for a long time.
There were two versions of the Focus hatch for 2017, with the 2019 model getting a carbon fiber roof, and the 2020 model getting an aluminium roof.
For 2017, Ford has also announced a new generation of the Ford Focus.
This will be powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, with power output topping the 4,500hp suggested by Ford.
In terms of styling, the 2019 models will feature more aerodynamic elements than previous versions.
They’ll feature a more ‘tiger’ nose with an extra nose fin and tail lights, and an aggressive grille, and rear diffuser.
Like the 2019 cars, the 2020 Focus will have a 5.0L turbocharged V8 engine, and there will be an option for a six-speed manual gearbox, although that’s not confirmed.
And the 2018 model will have four different body colours, including a “sporting grey” version with the new Focus logo on the roof.
Ford has also confirmed a new model in 2018 called the Focus G, which will have an aluminium interior, a carbon-fibre roof, aluminium wheels, a more aggressive grilles and a new centre console.
