do you really think oil is hear for ever. it a very depleting commodity.
and good Americans have give there lives for it. Just so you can can consume it, in the most un-productive way possible.

Even if your tirade is in any way accurate, it has nothing to do with the issue at hand. Ford does not offer any engines smaller than the 2.0GDI on the US-market Focus, the only other option being the 2.0Ecoboost on the ST, which is still more powerful, thus we in the US cannot choose any engine smaller than that, if we want a Focus.
By what standard the 2.0GDI is a gas-guzzler (38mpUSg/46mpImpg), I'm not entirely sure.
