The all-new 2021 Ford Focus will be globally released later next year. Thanks to the latest redesign, the new Focus will look very fresh and attractive. However, recent facelift is the reason why a new model won’t introduce any significant changes.
Focus will be available in hatchback, sedan, and wagon body styles. The interior will remain modern and very comfortable. Focus will act very sporty on the road and this model comes with a relatively new engine and gearbox. Speaking of sportiness, Focus ST will be available as well. Overall, we can expect another exciting year for Blue Oval’s iconic Focus model.
Ford Focus Exterior Facelift
As we already wrote, the 2020 Focus already got significant changes. For the same reason, the 2021 Ford Focus won’t introduce drastic upgrades. Generally, the model looks very fresh and it looks sharper than ever before. Some parts are looking sportier and aggressive.
Ford offers bulging fenders and a sloping roofline. The customers can still opt between hatchback, sedan and wagon versions. Front end hosts very modern headlights and an attractive grille. The rear end still sports almost new taillights and beautiful rear bumper. However, don’t expect any types of changes from the outside.
2021 Focus Dimensions
All versions will get the same 104.3 inches long wheelbase. However, the 2021 Ford Focus will offer numerous body styles. Knowing that hatchback is 171.6 long and sedan is slightly longer, 178.5 inches. Both variants are 71.8 inches wide and 58.4 inches tall.
On the other hand, wagon Focus is taller, but not drastically. Wagon model will be 59.3 inches tall. That means the 2021 Focus won’t get any sort of dimensional changes. However, the last version was slightly extended which will result in better interior legroom.
The interior of the all-new 2021 Ford Focus will be modern. Blue Oval will introduce minor updates only. That includes the update of the infotainment system and the base model will get more standard features. A 6.5-inch display is still standard while the 8-inch touchscreen remains optional. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are in the offer along with the optional Wi-Fi hotspot.
The customers can still remotely unlock the car and even the remote-start system is available. Overall, it is a modern cabin with a couple of premium amenities. The center console is relatively fresh and it looks narrower than before. Simple interior layout comes with plenty of legroom. Second-row occupants could also enjoy in generous legroom. Focus offers a new rotary shift dial too.
The forthcoming 2021 Ford Focus will retain its engine lineup. Thanks to that, we can expect a 1.5-liter EcoBoost that offers two different outputs. However, the first output is a three-cylinder and second a four-cylinder engine. Both units are offered globally. On the other hand, one of those two drivetrain options could be available in the United States.
An all-new 8-speed automatic transmission is available. This gearbox will be available on the 2020 Focus as well. For 2021, Blue Oval will deliver sportier driving manners and better handling. Overall, Focus will act smoother on the road and even the ST variant will be in the offer.
2021 Ford Focus Price and Release Date
The price of the 2021 Ford Focus will remain. This model will start slightly above $20,000. Trim levels should remain and new ST variant will arrive at the beginning of 2021. On the other hand, sedan, hatchback and wagon body styles will be released later in 2020.
