Ford is hard at work developing an all-new Focus for next year. The brand has been selling the current-gen Focus for nearly seven years, after all.

The all-new Focus will debut early next year as a 2019 model. Ford hasn’t said anything about this new model although first prototypes have been spied in Europe. The new Focus won’t cost much more than the current model but will offer more space and likely better features.

It is going to be based on a new chassis and this has been made clear from test mules spied earlier on. These were noticeably longer than the current car and also featured a longer wheelbase. Even though it doesn’t seem like it, the new car should also be slightly wider as well as lower. The larger footprint but the shorter height should allow for more space inside the cabin.

The 2019 Focus is likely to ditch all the naturally aspirated engines in favour of the EcoBoost powertrains. This means that even the base model in the US market will receive an EcoBoost. The most likely contender here is a 1-litre, 3-cylinder offering close to 140bhp. In Europe a 1.5-litre engine with anything between 150 and 200bhp should also be available. The rumoured ST Focus on the other hand would get to use a heavily updated 2-litre EcoBoost capable of up to 280 horsepower.

As for the launch, the new Focus would enter final phases of production early next year and would go on sale during the first months of 2018.
