2012 Ford Focus Gets 40 MPG

2012 Ford Focus Gets 40 MPG on the Highway

By Jim Sharifi

If you’re in the market for a car with impressive fuel economy, but don’t want to pay the premium that many hybrids command, you may want to check out the 2012 Ford Focus. “The all-new Ford Focus with the SFE (Super Fuel Economy) package delivers an EPA certified 40 mpg on the highway to go with its array of smart technologies, exceptional standards of craftsmanship and retuned suspension for a total driving experience not found anywhere else in the segment,” says Ford in a press release. “The new Focus is certified by the EPA at 40 mpg highway and 28 mpg city through its advanced six-speed automatic transmission.”

The fuel-saving option package adds about $500 to the base price, and Ford has incorporated features that reduce rolling-resistance in order to help the Focus achieve those numbers. “The SFE package also includes 16-inch steel wheels with aero wheel covers, active grille shutters, high-efficiency tires, four-wheel disc brakes, rear spoiler and a special SFE badge,” writes the Detroit Free Press. Ford notes that the new Focus beats much of the competition when equipped with an automatic transmission, including affordable small cars such as the Honda Civic and Chevrolet Cruze Eco. However, the Hyundai Elantra still manages slightly better fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 29/40 mpg city/highway.

The fuel-saving option is available on Ford Focus SE models, which cost just under $20,000 after you add the automatic transmission and SFE package. Although the 2012 Focus isn’t yet on dealer lots, expect to see it soon, as Ford indicates that it will be available in the spring of 2011.
