Those Projectors also look like the ones from the ST3 or the FFE also, so I'm really not seeing any Lincoln here.

There was initially going to be a Mercury Focus but that got scrapped with the death of Mercury also.
either way, its too early to tell but your speculations sound plausible just the same as the lincoln focus at this point. Which both sound like they could be good..

While we are speculating, I could see them doing some upscale things with the focus. Add heated/cooled perforated leather seats, front/rear. Possibly pairing an auto with either the 1.6l ecoboost and 2.0 ecoboost as options. The 1.6l can put down 180hp, so i could see that being used.

Dual pane moonroofs, some wood accents, couple more safety features, wheel/suspension improvements.
