My wife's 12 Focus SEL makes 160hp/148ft-lbs and gets 32-34 mpg in the same around town driving and gets 38-39 mpg on the hiway. Then take my 13 ST it gets the same mileage as the Daytona and makes 100ho/100ft-lbs more than the Daytona.
Some say three decades later the improvements should be even greater.
