Few other cars on the market have so many great features for performance, convenience, and connectivity. Check out this guide to the Focus's features from Arlington Heights Ford today!

So Many Engines

2016 Ford Focus highway The 2016 Ford Focus features a wide choice of engines. The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that uses a twin independent variable cam shaft timing system to produce 160 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. You can also choose the 1.0L Ti-VCT EcoBoost 3-cylinder engine; the EcoBoost technology ensures lower emissions with better fuel efficiency and nimble power, getting 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque and an impressive 42 mpg highway. It uses turbocharged direct fuel injection for more speed when you need it.

Choose the ST or RS hatchbacks for performance, and you'll feel the power of the 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine that produces an incredible 252 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque or the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine that produces an amazing 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.

When you choose the electric hatch, you'll get a permanent magnet electric traction motor that produces 107 kW, which translates to 143 hp. It uses a 23 kWh Li-ion battery that's liquid cooled and heated so it won't pull energy from the drive train to make sure it performs well.


The 2016 Ford Focus has features that make your performance even greater. Standard Torque Vectoring Control provides the effect of a torque vectoring differential with braking power by applying braking to the front inside wheel and engine torque to the front outside wheel when going around corners. This combines with the rear stabilizer bar and the independent control blade rear suspension for better control over your drive.

The electric power-assisted steering or EPAS adjusts the steering input for a more precise and spirited steering response at higher speeds, and better maneuverability at lower speeds. It comes with pull-drift compensation systems, which measure your steering input can adapt to changing road situations and directional shifts to keep you on track and in control. The ST model provides aggressive torque steer compensation and good grip even when accelerating on the most uneven road surfaces.

When you get the RS trim level, you'll get even more features for sporty performance and supreme control. Driving mode controls include a Normal, Sport, Track, or special Drift mode that allow you to pull off a controlled oversteer drift just like the pros! These four modes adjust the shock tuning, engine and steering response, and stability control.

Comfort and Convenience

The Focus Electric features the next-generation SmartGauge with Eco Guide. This instrument cluster uses a MyView screen that lets you customize what you see, with an efficiency and brake coaching system that helps you drive to use less of your vehicle's energy for more power. You'll get a budget gauge for maximizing your range, as well as access to Ford Sync technology with unique EV screens.

When you get Sirius XM satellite radio, you won't just get plenty of choices for premium radio listening. You'll also get Sirius XM in-vehicle navigation, using real time GPS information for turn-by-turn directions. Sirius XM also is available with Sirius traffic and weather, which delivers updates about local traffic patterns, local weather, stock prices, movie times, sports scores, and more.


The 2016 Ford Focus is packed full of technology that makes it safer and more convenient than ever to enjoy your drive. The standard rear camera lets you see behind you car when you're backing up so you can avoid collisions, while the optional safety and driver awareness technology includes features like active park assist, blind spot information alert, and a lane-keeping system to keep you aware of what's going on around your car.

The available intelligent access system with a push-button start lets you keep your key fob in your purse or pocket, locking and unlocking your doors when you're appropriately near or far, and letting you start your car or open your trunk without having to even lay a hand on your keys.
