Used Ford Focus for Sale
The Ford Focus was one of the Ford Motor Company 's first global vehicles. It debuted in Europe in 1998 and came to the United States in 2000, eventually spreading to most of the globe. It's the world's best-selling vehicle model (as of 2012) and replaced several of Ford's compact car models being sold ad hoc at home and abroad, including the Ford Escort, Laser, and others.
The Ford Focus is a compact four-door sold as either a sedan or a hatchback. The company's goals with the car were to unify its compact offerings into one model globally and lower costs through massive economies of scale. The plan worked. The first-generation of the Focus proved widely popular in Europe and other markets and eventually caught on in the U.S. as consumers began looking for entry-level vehicles with high fuel economy and better versatility than most compact cars had offered up to the late 1990s.
By the time the second-generation came around, Ford had begun to wonder what to do in the American market and dropped the hatchback variants in favor of a coupe and sedan. This made the North American Focus a different car from its international counterparts and proved a bad choice when sales figures were considered. The 2011 introduction of the current-generation reversed that and returned the Ford Focus to its global roots, making it an instantly popular choice among American new car buyers.
The Ford Focus is favored for its sporty nature, low cost, and award-winning looks. The vehicle has been popular enough that special edition variants have been introduced variously as the sport-tuned ST, the battery electric Ford Focus Electric, etc. Several engine options, including fuel-efficient EcoBoost engines, were introduced to the car.
The Ford Focus has become one of the most-recognized Ford cars internationally and a best-selling model for Ford after its F-150 pickup truck in the United States.
