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.
