2012 Focus will give Ford four vehicles that produce 40 mpg or more in 2011

Article by Christian A., on November 16, 2010

Fuel consumption is currently the top priority for car manufacturers and it appears that Ford is one of them. Ford announced today that it expects the new 2011 Focus to be rated by EPA at 40 mpg, making it the fourth vehicle that delivers 40 mpg or more in 2011.

Currently, Ford has three 2011 model year vehicles capable that have 2011 EPA ratings of 40 mpg highway/41 city: the Fiesta, Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ Hybrid sedans.

The 2012 Ford Focus will make its debut early next year, and will offer a fuel-efficient 2.0-liter gasoline direct-injection mate dot a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

If this new vehicle will deliver 40 mpg, this means that Ford will be the leader in fuel-efficient cars, as no other full-line automaker offers four nameplates with ratings of 40 mpg or more.

Ford already revised all the engine across its model lineup, and a good example is the all-new F-150 and Super Duty pickups as well as the new Mustang sports car.

2011 F-150 offers a new 3.7-liter V6 capable to deliver 302 hp and 17 mpg city/23 highway, while the 2011 Super Duty comes with a 6.7-liter diesel engine delivering 400 hp and 800 pounds-feet of torque, as well as with up to 20 percent better fuel economy than the 6.4-liter engine it replaced.

2011 Mustang comes with a 3.7-liter V6 with 305 hp mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and capable to deliver 31 mpg on the highway. [via autonews - sub. required]
