Let’s Take a Spin in the 2013 Ford Focus
Well, we can’t actually take you for a ride in the new 2013 Ford Focus from the other side of the virtual world, but what we can do is describe to you what it would feel like to drive around in Ford’s popular sedan. So sit back, relax and see for yourself what drivers around the nation are raving about as we take a spin in the 2013 Ford Focus.
You walk up to the Focus and the sleek, Z-shaped body catches your eye. As you step inside, you comfortably take a seat, noticing everything you could possibly need is within reach. The inside is soft, lined with luxurious materials and new technologies that keep the cabin quiet. You turn the key, start the engine and get ready to roll.
As you begin to drive you feel the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine accelerate to bring you 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft. of torque. Pairing this engine with the five-speed transmission, you indulge in the smooth ride as you take on the roads. While the Focus quickly accelerates to 60 miles per hour in only 8.3 seconds, you start to think about what you can buy with all the money you will save at the pump -since the Focus returns an EPA-estimated 28 city/ 38 highway miles-per-gallon.
While you cruise down the road, SYNC with MyFord Touch keeps you in touch and entertained… but oh! It’s your sister’s birthday! What now? You simply press the voice command button on the steering wheel and say, “call sister”. Your Focus dials your phone, allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. After the birthday wishes, turn up the HD Radio and enjoy your favorite jams with confidence; the 2013 Focus has several innovative safety features that ensure protection at all times.
No worries, a smooth ride, and technology our ears (and sister) can appreciate. The all-new 2013 Ford Focus sounds pretty good, right? We thought so.
