The 2014 Ford Focus is known for great fuel economy and top of the line technology.

The 2014 Ford Focus hits our Massillon showroom as one of the most popular vehicles on the road. When you have high fuel economy, great technology, and a trophy case full of awards, it is so easy to see why all your friends are driving Fords.

The Focus remains relatively unchanged from last year’s model, but when you test drive for yourself, you’ll understand this car didn’t need changed. The styling of the 2014 Ford Focus revolutionized the industry when it debuted. The trapezoid style grille became the face of Ford, along with those thin headlights and kinetic styling.

And when you talk about any new Ford, you start with great technology and high MPG. With EPA Estimated Highway mileage reaching up to 37 MPG, the Focus will help you avoid the pump. Then with the Focus, technology is a major high point.


Start with the Ford SYNC system powered by Microsoft. You’ve probably heard about Ford SYNC, now see it for yourself. Voice recognition puts you at command. Tell SYNC what you want — call someone, play a song, pick an app — and Ford will do whatever you say.

And of course there is a number of features associated with Ford SYNC. You’ll get Bluetooth, streaming music, MP3, USB or iPod. We’ll help you Sync these systems to car, and it’s easier than ever to use the technology on your 2014 Ford Focus. Then add the available 8-inch color LCD touch screen with SYNC and MyFord Touch. You’ll get  6-month trail to SiriusXm Satellite Radio, Navigation, and a trial of SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link. With this app, you’ll be able to check fuel price, check the weather and check traffic speed, accidents and road closings.

Taking technology and safety  hand-in-hand, check out the available Active Park Assist. You’ve probably seen it before — the Ford Focus basically parks itself with available active park assist. Show the Ford where you want to parallel park, press the button and take your hands off the wheel.  All you have to do is follow system prompts, shift gears and control the brake and accelerator pedals, and the thing parks itself!

Another innovation from the 2014 Ford Focus is the Easy Fuel capless fuel filler. The gas cap is a thing of the past, because this car doesn’t need one.

The Focus was a 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick, one of just 6 small cars to earn this rating. The Focus also earned a 5-star crash test rating from NHTSA.
