All eyes focus on Ford

Video of the 2012 Ford Focus. The new design will be available in the U.S., European, and Asian markets.

This video of the 2012 Ford Focus popped up on YouTube yesterday. The Focus will, no doubt, be the talk of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Both the four-door sedan and five-door hatchback body styles of the next-generation Focuswill be previewed at the show.

According to an announcement today on Ford's Web site, the company is showing a "completely new 2.0-liter gasoline engine for the North American market that features DI and Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) for enhanced performance and fuel efficiency. The new 2.0-liter DI Ti-VCT engine is up to 20 horsepower more powerful than the current 2.0 Duratec I-4 unit while contributing to projected fuel economy gains of more than 10 percent."

The new models will also include MyFord, which provides drivers with controls and display screens to operate the key vehicle features.

I'm looking forward to reading blog posts from the show, but until then I'm going to watch this video and check out this slideshow.
