Twin Force.

Will a Focus ever get a Twin Force V6 or will I have to drive a Fusion to for that?

it's not gonna happen. they talked about doing a twin turbo on an I4. But a twin turbo isn't as effective as a single turbo on an I4.

Somethings are not to much for any Ford Focus, I say forget about Twin Force and get it with those inline 5 duratecs over to the states.

You're correct. It's a direct injection fuel delivery system, and turbocharged.

Probably not a lot of boost, but enough to get 400 HP.

Anyone know the literage?

i can see them throwing a 2.0T or 2.3T or maybe even 1.8T i definetly see a turbo motor coming. Almost every competitor offers a car with 190+ horsepower (Civic Si, Nissan SE-R V Spec, even mazdaspeed 3, WRX (not really a competitor but oh well), i just cant see them slumping on it too much longer, if they build a car that can compete witht he SRT 4 from Ford it will boost their image a ton

Ford has almost always had cars that have had less hp than their competitors. Look at the Mustang, they have always had their numbers lower than the Camaro's and that is Ford's baby. It wouldn't surprise me if they did nothing with the Focus and just offered one engine in it.
