05 Focus..

Whats everyone think of the new style focus they're coming out with in 2005. Im not to sure about it yet. I guess it looks good and the Duratec will be a nice upgrade but it almost looks like a i hate to say it but VW jetta. The interior is almost identical so arent the headlights. But it does have some of the old focus qualities. I didnt see a zx3 version of the focus for 2005. Are they discontinueing it or something. All they showed was the sedan.


Tell me what you think

ok, finally! there is so much BS being flung around online as to what the next focus is gonna look like. nice to see the official result.

i would have to see it in person before i gave a definite answer, but i'd have to say i'm not to crazy about the front end. looks too much like the current taurus, IMO. rest of ti i like. anyone have pics other than the zx4 (formerly known as the zts)?

Mike

Hate the interior.... the Focus interior was very unique in the Ford line... but now, it looks just like everything else, from the F-150, to the Freestar, to the Taurus.

I hate the front end too. They rounded too much, it looks too much like an older Taurus (hopfing that I am thinking of the right car)

I agree, hate the front, they should have kept the distingtive traingular headlights

I do like the rear howeve, very european looking..

Yes, the Duratec is nice. Too bad there plans hasn't been announced if its going to be availible in the hatch that year. If you want it in a hatch, get it now.
