Here is the Dearborn Engine Plant (DEP) bulletin to the employees Jan/Feb 2016 newsletter regarding the new engine notice.

This year is a pivotal year for DEP as we are in the middle of launching the B515 engine for South America and beginning to install the facility upgrades for the C519 engines. In the future these engine programs have our engine
going into additional vehicles beyond the Focus that we currently support. For many reasons including low gas prices, sales of the Focus continues to drop and as MAP reduces schedule we reduce also. We have announced that we will reduce a shift of machining this spring to balance the volume. We will continue to have to adjust capacity to demand this year but are hopeful that with next year’s launches of B515/C519 we will start to regain volume.

The program code #s B515 is the EcoSport, and C519 is MK4 Focus

Surprises me that's on a publically facing site.

2019 Ford Focus Reveals Its Production-Spec Body
The front look better then the MK3.5 but not the MK3 IMHO. It look nice from the side also. It remind me of a BRZ.

I really hope they will have a plugin hybrid version !!
