A 2.0 turbo Ecoboost Euro Focus sounds nice.

this is what they need, which is great. also they said by 2013 that 90% of their cars will be fitted with the ecoboost, so a boosted focus maybe in our future you guys!

hold on, ford is lying about something...

this is copied EXACTLY as it says in the article..

"In addition to the power upgrade, the 2010 EcoBoost Flex boasts segment-leading fuel economy among full-size performance crossover vehicles with 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined.

The 2010 Flex has unsurpassed fuel economy in the full-size crossover segment with 24 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined, one of a number of new Ford products delivering the best or among the best fuel economy."

SO at first it gets 22 & 18mpg, THEN it gets 24 & 19mpg.... soooo the longer you own it the better mileage it gets? something doesn't seem right.

AND so I said the focus will be the 10% that isn't boosted, that could be as it is their lowest end vehicle, the have 17 consumer vehicles and they count the focus coupe and focus sedan as separate cars in their inventory, SOOO 2 of 17 > 10%

I now say :( in advance.

thats ok, I don't like the 3rd gen focus anyway
