    If you’re currently in the market for a used vehicle, there’s no better choice than a used Ford Focus. The third-generation of the iconic model has proven an excellent target for those seeking a pre-owned vehicle, with each of the applicable model years providing their own specific features and capabilities.

    Unfortunately, it isn’t as easy as heading into a dealership and asking for a used Ford Focus… especially when you consider that this specific version of the vehicle is somewhat hard to come across (this can mostly be attributed to the fact that these vehicles are still relatively new, and former owners aren’t particularly eager to look for a replacement). And, you’ll want to understand what each of these specific versions of the third-generation Focus can actually deliver, thus providing you with plenty of clarity when you’re ready to initiate the car-buying process…

    After years of having two separate versions of the model available in North America and international countries, Ford finally combined the two variants of their Focus in time for the release of the third generation. Since the brand was essentially revamping these two versions, the previous rendition of the North American Ford Focus was discontinued, making way for a revised version of the iconic sedan.

    During the design process, Ford’s group of engineers focused on the “Third Age Suit” philosophy, which saw them donning a suit that helped simulate the restrictions of certain type of drivers. With these engineers now realizing the limitations of some of their customers, they cleverly redesigned the vehicle so it could appeal to a wider range of consumers. Therefore, when the vehicle was finally introduced at the 2010 North American International Auto Show, it was greeted with much fanfare.

    The major aesthetic changes came to the cabin, which the engineers made more roomy and comfortable. The brand also added a number of clever technological features, improving the accompanying driving experience. The redesigned chassis was the main exterior revision, with the brand also adding longer headlamps and a more modern front grille.

    While the Ford Focus sedan was obviously the brand’s main focus, they also released several new variations of the model, as well. A five-door hatchback version debuted the same year as the third-generation sedan, thus providing customers with even more interior room. Also, in an effort to compete with the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt, the brand released an electric version of the car, the Ford Focus Electric.

    Another major change came under the hood, as the brand had been looking to install a more efficient engine to their popular sedan. They ultimately released their 2.0-liter Ti-VCT GDI I4 engine, which was capable of delivering an absolutely incredible 38 miles per gallon on the highway. These superb numbers could be attributed to inclusions like variable camshaft timing or direct gasoline injection, and the inclusion of either a five-speed manual or six-speed auto-shift manual transmission also played a significant role. Despite this excellent efficiency, drivers could also expect adequate power, as the unit could crank out 160 horsepower and 146 pounds-feet of torque, leading to around a 7.6 zero-to-60 mph time.

    The vehicle was also equipped with a number of reliable safety functions that are intended to keep the revamped sedan in one piece. Besides protective features like the six airbags, drivers could also rely on the electronic stability control to help keep them on their intended path.

    The main selling point for the 2013 Ford Focus was the number of trim options that customers could opt for. Whether these consumers were valuing luxury, sportiness, or performance, they were surely able to find a version of the sedan that fit their requirements.

    For instance, the Ford Focus SE added some opulence to the vehicle. The inside was highlighted by comfort amenities like power windows, front armrests, and heated front seats/exterior mirrors (on the accompanying Winter Package), while the six-speaker audio system, with an accompanying USB port, was a technological inclusion that would surely enhance entertainment.

    Meanwhile, the 2013 Ford Focus Titanium took that technology to a whole new level. The vehicle is chock full of innovative features, including a dual-zone automatic climate control system and keyless start and entry. To help improve the driver’s commute, engineers also included a Sony premium audio system, providing occupants with an unmatched listening experience.

  • 2014

    Customers were apparently seeking an even sportier version of the Ford Focus, and the brand certainly heard their demands as they were designing the 2014 version of the model. This specific version of the sedan included 16-inch paint machined aluminum wheels, which undoubtedly added some athleticism to the exterior. The interior included amenities like sport cloth seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, while the exterior included a new rear spoiler and fog lamps. While some of the features may be ordinary in 2017, they were certainly sought after back in 2014.

  • 2015

    The exterior was restyled once again for the 2015 model year, with engineers revamping several features that had seen revisions only several years prior. Ford included a brand-new grille, and also completely redesigned the vehicle’s hood and trunk. The inside of the vehicle also saw some minor changes, including the addition of a new dashboard and the installation of classier upholstery.

    Mechanically, the suspension was overhauled, providing drivers with a smoother driving experience. Owners could also rely on the upgraded safety functions, which added an array of reliable preventative functions that should keep drivers out of harm’s way. The most significant addition was the brand’s new 1.0-liter Ecoboost three-cylinder engine. This specific unit was mostly known for its incredible efficiency specs, as drivers could generally expect around 40 miles per gallon while traveling on the highway. Notably, the system could still deliver a surprising amount of power, as owners could capitalize on the 123 horsepower and 148 pounds-feet of torque.

  • 2016

    Considering the brand seemingly changed several aspects of the third-generation Ford Focus every year, it shouldn’t be all that surprising that they didn’t do much to change up the vehicle for the 2016 model year.

    The 2016 model saw the addition of the Focus RS, which boosted the accompanying performance specs considerably. This vehicle was equipped with the dynamite 2.3-liter turbocharged GDI I4 engine, which delivered unmatched performance specs (at least when compared to the brand’s other engine offerings). Drivers could ultimately expect 350 horsepower and 350 pounds-feet of torque, resulting in an impressive 4.6-second zero-to-60 mph time. Despite these power numbers, the vehicle was also capable of delivering a respectable 25 mpg efficiency on the highway.

  • 2017

    Similar to the 2016 model, the 2017 Ford Focus’ changes were rather minor. The brand did include their new SEL trim, which essentially slotted in between the SE and the top-of-the-line Titanium trim. Specifically, the exterior aesthetics were slightly revamped, with engineers including those previously-mentioned 17-inch wheels and new black-painted pockets. The car also included clever wraparound headlamps, providing unmatched visibility.
