A new version of the 2015 Ford Focus ST will be shown later this year, Ford said on Wednesday.
Pricing will be announced later. The base 2014 Ford Focus sedan starts at $17,635, including an $825 destination charge.
The redesigned Focus, which competes with the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic and Mazda 3, gets a major update over the 2014 Focus.
"The redesigned Ford Focus offers a bolder exterior design, a more intuitive and upscale interior, a host of technologies uncommon for a compact car and the additional powertrain option of Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine with a new-six speed manual transmission in the U.S.-spec Focus," the company said in a statement.
The optional 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine is expected to help Focus boost its fuel efficiency.
The EPA has not posted official fuel economy numbers on the 2015 Focus.
For 2015, Focus adds an SE Sport package, which includes new body treatments, paddle shifters (on automatic transmission version only), a revised touring suspension and 17-inch black gloss aluminum wheels.
A rearview camera will be standard on all trim levels. A new heated steering wheel will be optional, along with 10 different wheels as factory options.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers should be pleased with the updates to the 2015 Focus, which comes out of the starting gate with a sophisticated look and the promise of better fuel economy.
