The next generation 2012 Ford Focus has just been unveiled at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show. The 2012 Ford Focus will enter
production in both Europe and the United states late this year and will hit the global market in early 2011. The 2012 Ford
Focus is based on a new platform which will underpin up to 10 vehicles around the world and will account for two million units
of annual production by 2012.
The 2012 Focus will feature a range of Ford's EcoBoost four-cylinder turbocharged direct injection (DI) engines including
the 1.6-litre unit. The 2012 Ford Focus will also offer improved Duratorq TDCi common-rail diesel engines which promise to
offer between 10 and 20 per cent improvement in fuel consumption over the outgoing motors.
Ford to use 'Coyote' engine in Falcon range
Ford Australia has just confirmed that its recently-revealed direct-injection ‘Coyote’
5.0 litre V8 will be fitted to the Falcon range, replacing the current 5.4 litre Boss engines.Due to Euro 4 emissions compliance
requirements the Boss range is to be discontinued from July this year. Ford first used the new engine as part of the Mustang
line-up late last year.In standard naturally-aspirated form the ‘Coyote’ 5.0 litre engine develops 307kW of power
and 529Nm of torque, trumping the 290kW/520Nm of the current XR8.
