Yes they fit for sure, as these are the rims on the Focus Titanium X spec model. 17" 15 spoke

BTW, Dearborn Engine Plant which produces the 2.0L engine for the Focus, is in the process of installing upgrades in the plant for a new engine that will be in the MY2018 MK4 Focus, and other Ford vehicles. I do not know what engine this is.

Aren't they supposed to move the MK4 (Focus & engine plant) to Mexico?

It wouldn't surprise me if they built the engine in the US, sent it to Mexico to attach to the Focus and then send the assembled cars back over the border to sell in America.

Hmm, interesting. I wonder how much a set of those would run for...

Poor bugger was doomed to fail.
Manual transmissions are getting less and less desirable by consumers, so not really surprised.

If you look at option packages, a lot of vehicles offered with a manual force you into an automatic to get some of the other options.

My previous vehicle was a 2004, and and I wanted a manual. Dealer had two in stock, and were all the way in back and had to move vehicles to get them out. Had dozens and dozens of automatics. Dealer was probably glad to unload the manual.

Just playing around on Ford.com. Is it just me or can you not add a 1.0 engine to the Focus? I don't see it offered nor an option on hatchback or sedan. Hopefully just me. Just don't see it offered any more. It was on there a week ago when I was looking. Strange.

Prob. rearranged the site so it's in there as a separate model, not an engine option.

Don't see that either anywhere on the site. Strange. By all means if you have the time, try to build one with a 1.0.

Didn't find a way to do it.

It's listed at the start page here:https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...yINZ9phsTle90w

But once you go to build your own I can't find the listed options to get it.

OK at least I now know it's not just me. Seems odd to be a Ford.com glitch. I tried this a few days ago and couldn't build one. Yet I could build one (1.0) a full week ago. Not sure when the change happened as I don't try every day. Interesting to say the least. Thanks for the effort!
