Since debuting at the 2007 North American International Auto Show, the restyled North American second generation Ford Focus has been sold by Ford as either a two-door coupe and 4-door sedan — the hatchbacks and wagon were discontinued. The interior was redesigned, including new seats, a new dashboard design with message center atop of the dashboard, ambient lighting, dashboard panels that simulate brushed aluminum, and Ford's voice-controlled Sync audio/Bluetooth system. Also included in the redesign is a support beam behind the dashboard for extra structural rigidity.

  • Since debuting at the 2007 North American International Auto Show, the restyled North American second generation Ford Focus has been sold by Ford as either a two-door coupe and 4-door sedan — the hatchbacks and wagon were discontinued. The interior was redesigned, including new seats, a new dashboard design with message center atop of the dashboard, ambient lighting, dashboard panels that simulate brushed aluminum, and Ford's voice-controlled Sync audio/Bluetooth system. Also included in the redesign is a support beam behind the dashboard for extra structural rigidity. Optional ambient lighting in the Focus uses LEDs placed in the front and rear footwells and the cup holders. Standard equipment includes a tire pressure monitoring system as mandated by the TREAD Act. The 2.3 liter Duratec engine is discontinued for the redesign, leaving only the 2.0 liter Duratec 20 engine. Power is increased in the 2.0 liter engine, up to 140 hp (104 kW) from 136 hp (101 kW), along with other changes to increase fuel efficiency. The chassis was lightened and stiffened and overall weight is decreased by 30 lb (14 kg) from the previous model. Highway mileage is rated at 35 mpg-US (6.7 L/100 km; 42 mpg-imp) using the new 2008 United States Environmental Protection Agency standards. The second generation of Ford Focus stopped production late in calendar 2010, with the switchover to that of the third generation taking until early spring 2011 due to the total refitting of the Michigan Assembly Plant, and to give dealers time for stock depletion. Despite this, some dealers ran a 50% sale on 2011 Focuses as of mid-2011, as they were forced to simultaneously offer both it and the 2012 model. (en)
