Ford has released the first images of the 2012 Focus wagon, ahead of its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show tomorrow.
Set to account for nearly 33 percent of Focus sales in Europe, the wagon features attractive styling, integrated roof rails, and a self-closing tailgate.
According to Derrick Kuzak, Ford's group vice president of Product development, "Our next generation of C-cars shows how Ford is using its global resources to develop at least ten new models or derivatives from the same platform globally. The Focus wagon is the next model to be revealed, and is particularly significant for the European market as more than a third of our C-car customers here prefer a wagon bodystyle."
While Ford is staying mum on details, the company announced the wagon will be offered with four-cylinder EcoBoost engines. This means we can expect a 1.6-liter (with 150-180 hp / 112-134 kW) and a 2.0-liter with over 200 hp (149 kW). As Kurzak explained, "We want to reassure enthusiasts of Focus performance models that we have a plan for them as well. Our commitment is to deliver an exciting performance model of the new Focus on a global basis and using a version of our advanced new Ford EcoBoost petrol direct-injection turbo engine. We're not ready to reveal more details yet, but we recognize how important this model will be in the Focus line-up, particularly for customers in Europe."
Look for more information to be released tomorrow.
