Redesigned 2019 Ford Focus Coming to Europe but Not USA

2018 Ford Focus

As part of its effort to revise its lineup into a collection of only crossovers, SUVs, and trucks, Ford has given the Focus a next-generation redesign. The 2019 Focus will come in multiple forms, including the Focus Active, which is a taller, crossover-like version.

Unfortunately, the new import tariff imposed on automakers has compelled Ford to exclude the Focus from its North American lineup. The Focus Active, which is built in China, would cost the automaker and buyers far too much to be worth bringing to America, so the redesigned 2019 Ford Focus sedan and hatchback will only be available in Europe and Asia.

One of the most appealing features of the 2019 Ford Focus is the expanded back seat area. The new Ford Focus will offer class-leading rear knee-room at an additional 1.97 cubic inches over previous model years. Additionally, the new Ford Focus expands rear shoulder room by adding on an additional 2.4 inches. The 2019 Focus features expanded rear windows that stretch further back, making the new Focus feel more spacious for passengers of all sizes.

While we still have plenty of new 2018 Ford Focus models and pre-owned Ford Focus models available at Friendly Ford, we will not be getting the Europe-exclusive 2019 Focus Active here at Friendly Ford. So, get your hands on one of the new 2018 Focus models we have in stock while they’re still available!
