The Second Generation Ford Focus: 2008-2011

When the Ford Focus first came onto the market in the 2000 model year, it changed the small car game in the U.S. forever. A well-built compact car out of Detroit was now available with plenty of performance, features, and an attractive design that could easily edge out the foreign competition. In 2008, Ford released the second generation of the Focus to their American market as both a sedan and a coupe, revealing even more styling effects, more available high-tech features, and a more powerful standard powertrain.
