The New 2017 Ford Focus In Winnipeg

Want to see where the grass is always greener on the other side of the (Stony) mountain? Take the short trip to our dealership and you’ll quickly understand why 2017 is the year you upgrade your ride. Vehicles like the game-changing aluminum F-150, sharply styled Edge, and now the reinvigorated Focus give Manitobans even more incentive to drive a new car with winning looks, fuel efficiency, and high-tech safety features.

But don’t just take our word for it. At River City Ford on 3636 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, we want you to have all the information at hand to make an informed decision for your next compact car. Check out the rest of this page and then give our friendly sales team a call at 204-837-3636 to book a test drive from our range of new and certified used Ford Focus models. Similarly to wands in Harry Potter, often the car chooses you, not the other way around.

2017 Ford Focus Engines & Fuel Economy

Go ahead, judge the 2017 Ford Focus by its cover. What lies underneath is just as exciting as the beautifully proportioned, European designed exterior. The 2017 Ford Focus can be had with one of three transmissions (5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, or 6-speed dual-clutch automatic) paired to one of these three engines:

  • 1.0L EcoBoost 3-cylinder: 123 horsepower and 125 ft-lbs of torque (fuel economy stats to come)
  • 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder: 160 horsepower and 146 ft-lbs of torque (fuel economy stats to come)
  • 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder: 252 horsepower and 270 ft-lbs of torque (fuel economy stats to come)

2017 Ford Focus Interior Design

Like removing a few piercings upon landing a more professional job, the 2017 Ford Focus has matured in its style, but still retains all that youthful enthusiasm. Ford’s vice president of design, Moray Callum, describes the new Focus as less “frenetic” than its predecessor; with smooth, premium materials, a logical control layout, and available heated steering wheel and seats, we’re inclined to agree. Are Winnipeg’s local radio stations not playing what you want to hear? The new Focus features a SYNC infotainment system that allows you to wirelessly stream your favourite songs on your phone or tablet over Bluetooth.

2017 Ford Focus Safety Features

Although the 2017 Ford Focus is too new to have been tested by the IIHS or NHTSA, it will likely receive a 5-star, Top Safety Pick designation just like its predecessor. What’s certain, though, is the wealth of active and passive safety technology available on the new Focus to make your commutes as safe and stress-free as possible. Some of this equipment includes lane keeping assist, rear view parking camera, active park assist, front and side airbags, blind spot monitoring, and stability control, and four-wheel disc brakes.
