Ever since the Ford Cougar left Fords product line up in 2002 the company has not had a coupé on sale and certainly not one that could have kept up with the many established vehicles on sale. This is all set to change now as Ford have just announced it will be showcasing its new coupé model the Ford Focus coupé in January at the Detroit motor show.
Hoping to take the market by storm the Focus coupé is based on the Focus Mk III, which is already a great seller at forecourts including the Ford Focus Taunton dealership. The Focus coupé is set to not only become the flagship model for all new Ford models but also a replacement for its current three door hatchback.
From first glance you can tell that the Ford coupé is something special and contains a lot more than could be expected. At the front is a wonderfully stylish gaping grille and is matched at the other end with a sharp steep sloping windscreen. An interesting influence is the coupés C pillars; an obvious detail for those that remember the car manufacturer’s distinctive Capri model. Mix these fabulous stylish and urban features with its large alloy wheels, LED headlights and centred exhaust and you get a car that is worthy of taking over the coupé market for good!
Under the bonnet the coupe is based upon the Focus ST and shares the same 247bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged Eco Boost petrol engine.
Even though the vehicle is set to be unveiled early next year its production date is still in the air, many speculate that we could be seeing them for sale along side other new cars Taunton in 2012 at the earliest.
