I would like my heated seats to be vented as well for the summer. But if I were to only have one change then I would add the adaptive cruise that the euro models get.

More power would definitely be awesome. If only Ford would make a turbocharged Focus...

You got it! My wife hates the radio in the Focus. I don't see the "Improvement" in making the radio easier to use.

Oh wait they already do, and are adding a second one for 2015 to the U.S. market.

2.0 L EcoBoost GTDI 252 hp / 270 lb-ft of torque and the new comer 1.0 L i3 GTDI 125 hp / 148 lb-ft of torque.

The 1.6 L EcoBoost however is not available as a midrange power plant with more power and torque than the 2.0 L n/a GDI engine.

The infotainment system wouldn't be a giant pile of Microsoft designed garbage.

Are you referring to the one that says "Sony" on it or the one made by an unknown vendor?

Hes talking about mytouch. Which I happen to like and really have no problems navigating or using it since its been released. Though it could be since i have used it basically every day since that time.

One thing I don't like is where they put the 12v socket and seat heater switches right under the front of the arm rest on my 2012 SE. Also the USB port inside the arm rest. Would rather have all those further up on the center console where I could see them/access them better.



Never could understand why they made the cup holder/12v/handbrake a different configuration between the SE and Titanium models. I would think it would have been cheaper for Ford to just make them the same. Then again, I like the cup holder placement better on my SE vs. the Titanium. Don't think I'd want my cup holders right next to the front of the armrest like that. Thinking of hardwiring another 12V and USB socket somewhere on the dash or further up on the console.

I was thinking this would be a better place to have the 12v & a USB plug.
