On February 3rd, 2015, Ford warmed the hearts of Ford performance enthusiasts living in America with the announcement of the all-new Ford Focus RS. The newest redesign is Ford’s third-generation of the Focus RS and will be available in major markets around the world including, for the first time in Focus RS history, the United States! We can remember just a year ago posting the second-generation on social media with pleas that Ford bring it to America. The wait is over! The Focus RS comes after January’s announcement of the GT350R and the Ford GT supercar – all part of a new era of Ford performance that will deliver 12 new vehicles by 2020. Read More

2014 Ford Focus ST vs the Used Competition.
So you’re in the market for a car. But not just any car, you want a practical performance car. Well we here at FordAddict have the perfect option; the 2014 Focus ST. A 2.0 Liter 4 cylinder Turbo with a 6-Speed Manual, Room for 5, and in a practical hatchback body style too! Need we go any further? Well we will. The Ford Focus ST provides an amazing performance bargain with a base price of a little over $23,000. For an ST3 packaged car, the MSRP is $27,750. For this you get features such as Heated Leather Recaro Seats, HID headlights, Ford SYNC, MyFord Touch with navigation, Sirius XM, and Dual Zone Climate Controls. Features like these were only available on higher end vehicles costing upwards of $50k only just a few years ago!
Despite the Ford Focus being the top selling vehicle in the world, Ford has decided to redesign the 2015 Ford Focus compact car to be bolder, smarter, and even more fuel efficient. Taking design queues from the Fiesta and Fusion, the front fascia and front hood have all been redesigned, including the headlamps and fog lamps. The liftgate and taillamps have also been redesigned for the hatchback, as well as the trunklid on the sedan. Every model except the S will see available redesigned wheels ranging from 15″ – 18″.
Ford is gearing up to make 2014 the biggest year in its century-long history. With 5 redesigned products either on the horizon or already on the ground, this is shaping up to be a year of big changes for the company. From the aluminum-bodied F-150 to the controversial styling of the Mustang, no expense was spared in planning Ford’s new direction. The Transit Connect also saw big changes for this year and now offers two wheelbases, new trim levels and a Wagon with its crosshairs pointed directly at the family market. Ford is looking to grow from the biggest North American manufacturer to the biggest manufacturer in the world, and it has armed itself with five new models loaded with cutting edge equipment and state-of-the-art technology to accomplish its goal. Here are quick summaries of the announced models.
2014 Ford Model Changes
Ford never stops in its quest to bring the most efficient, powerful cars that offer customers the best value in the marketplace. Every year Ford Motor Company brings its best game and improves upon their existing model foundations with new standard equipment, options and exterior updates. The 2014 models are beginning to arrive, and once again Ford is packing more value into every model in the lineup. Nearly every vehicle we have available has some changes to it, including one complete redesign and one mid-cycle refresh. Even vehicles that were redesigned in 2013 are getting updates for the new model years.
