Over the last few years, the Ford Focus has become one of the most popular compact sedans on the market. Since Ford is a company that understands the power of innovation, it’s not surprising that they weren’t content to ride the existing success of this vehicle. Instead, they’ve done a lot to make the 2015 Ford Focus a great vehicle that will delight current Focus owners and catch the attention of anyone interested in reaping all the benefits that a quality compact sedan has to offer.

Plenty of Power Under the Hood

One feature that has consistently separated the Focus from other compact sedans is Ford has never been stingy about giving it plenty of power. With its latest two engine options, Ford continues its trend of providing lots of power in a compact package. The 2015 Focus comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Drivers looking for even more get up and go can upgrade to the turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder. Both engines are available with manual or automatic six-speed transmissions.

A Great Progression of Design

Of the many reasons that the Ford Focus has become such a popular car, design is at the top of the list. Since drivers around the globe love the design of this vehicle, there was no reason for Ford to dramatically overhaul it. But even though it didn’t need a complete makeover, the new Focus has some updated design touches that are very nice. Notable design features of the exterior include a trapezoidal grille, lower headlights and new taillights that are laid out in a way which creates a horizontal design for the rear.


Feels Great on the Inside

If you come by Chapman Ford Scottsdale to test drive this new vehicle, you will be very happy with how it feels when you open the door and get in the driver’s seat. One major interior design change from previous models is everything inside the vehicle is controlled by buttons. This makes it very easy to control everything from audio to the temperature. A heated steering wheel and redesigned glove box are just a few of the features you’ll enjoy inside the latest Focus.

Safe and Efficient

To help keep drivers as safe as possible on the road, the 2015 Ford Focus offers a lane-keeping system. Other components of the safety system include a rearview camera and a blind spot warning feature that uses radar technology. And in terms of efficiency, with the ability to get more than 40 miles per gallon on the highway, the new Focus is definitely very wallet friendly.

If you’re looking for a new car that’s safe, efficient, practical and much more, the 2015 Ford Focus should be at the top of your list!

If you love sports cars with lots of power, you’re going to be very excited about this announcement. RTR spokesperson Jess Albright recently let the world know that the 2015 Ford Mustang RTR will start arriving at dealerships in January. This powerful vehicle will include both visual enhancements and performance mods that are derived directly from the Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog.


Although RTR is building excitement by holding back on some of the details, the official rendering above shows what to expect from this awesome car. And if January still seems like it’s forever away, the good news is RTR will use November’s 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas to reveal pricing and “many more details and specifications will be available leading up to the official release.”

Details of the 2015 Ford Mustang RTR

While the world still has to wait a little longer to find out the full list of what the new RTR is going to bring to the table, Chapman Ford has quite a few details that we can share about this upcoming release. Vaughn Gittin Jr., who is a world champion drifter, helped to develop the RTR Spec 1 and Spec 2 packages.

Given the fact that Gittin has built a reputation for aggressive driving even by the standards of the drifting world, it’s no surprise that he wanted to take the already great 2015 Ford Mustang and turn into something that will be the envy and desire of all car enthusiasts. In an official announcement about the new Mustang and upcoming RTR launch, Gittin said that he’s “pumped to work with such an incredible platform for RTR builds,” and his enhancements will focus on suspension, styling and power plant options.


As a teaser of what to expect from the RTR line, the Spec 1 will be available for both the four-cylinder and V8 engines, while the Spec 2 will be limited to V8 Mustangs. The four-cylinder engine is a 2.3-liter EcoBoost with 300 hp, while the V8 is a 5.0 liter beast with 435 horsepower.

Not only will the RTR upgrades add even more power to the new Mustang, but they will also take its look to the next level. Signature graphics, RTR badges, dusted license-plate surrounds, front & rear spoilers, and special wheels will set these vehicles apart from anything else on the road. And once inside, drivers and passengers will be surrounded by upgraded floor mats, a specialized shift knob and much more.

If you want to have the most stylish and powerful Mustang on the road, be sure to check back soon for coverage of November’s full release and then January’s debut to the market!
