Ford Focus Engines 2000-Present

The popularity of the Ford Focus is probably due to its price and the fact that it is offered in a variety of trim levels (S, SE, SES and SEL for sedans and SE and SES for coupes). Since 2000, this front-wheel-drive “entry level” economy car has been popular enough not to require significant redesign for the American market, although sales have dropped off in recent years. The car has had cosmetic and changes engine changes over the years and was restyled considerably in 2005. The coupe is relatively new, having been introduced in 2008. The original Focus line actually offered a bigger variety of models than is found today, as the 2000 Focus was available as a hatchback, sedan or wagon.

The first generation of Focus models ran from 2000-07. LX and SE Focus sedans for model years 2000-4 featured 2-liter CVH (Compound Valve angle Hemispherical combustion chamber) engines, a type of engine also found in some Escorts, Sierras and Fiestas of the period. Mounting the valves at a compound angle allowed for a hemispherical combustion chamber without twin camshafts. The advantages of the CVH engine include fuel economy and easy tuning. Disadvantages are its high noise, vibration and harshness levels (levels so remarkable the acronym was said to really stand for “Considerable Vibration and Harshness”) and a tendency to quickly reduce oil to sludge if prompt oil change requirements weren’t met. The standard in LX and SE trim models was a 110-horsepower CVH engine with 125 foot-pounds of torque.

Focus sedans of trim levels ZX3, ZX5, ZTS and wagons produced from 2000-04 had 2-liter, 130-horsepower Zetec engines with 135 foot-pounds of torque. The word “Zetec” originally replaced Zeta as a name for certain 1.6-2-liter multivalve engines Ford made in the 1990s. When the Zetec name gained brand recognition, Ford applied it to other four-cylinder engines. The Zeta engines for which the word “Zetec” was coined as a replacement name were not produced after 2004. (To compound the confusion still further, Ford has named a completely unrelated Formula One engine the “Ford Zetec,” and even used the word “Zetec” to signify a particular trim level in certain markets.) The Zetec engine was also available but not standard in SE sedans until 2004. The Zetec for the SVT model was a bit more powerful, having 170 horsepower and 175 foot-pounds of torque. In 2001, the Zetec engine became standard on the SE wagon.

The 2005 facelift saw several Focus engine changes. 2005-07 Focus sedans, with the exception of the ST, had 2-liter dual-overhead cam slant-four Duratec engines with 136 horsepower and 136 foot-pounds of torque. (These replaced both the 2-liter single overhead cam CVH engine and the 2-liter Zetec engine.) In ZX4 STs, the 2.3-liter dual overhead cam slant-four Duratec was now standard and boasted performance-level exhaust.

In California-level emissions states, partial zero-emissions vehicle- or PZEV-certified engines became available in 2003. These were 2.3 liter Duratec slant-fours with 145 horsepower and 149 foot-pounds of torque. This PZEV-certified engine was standard for 2003-4 in the California-level emissions states CA, MA, NY, VT and ME. It became an option in other states in 2004. 2005-07 PZEV engines were 2-liter Duratecs with 130 horsepower and 129 foot-pounds of torque. These were standard in the California level states listed above and optional in AZ, CT, NY, NJ, NV, OR, PA, and RI.

For its second generation, Ford eliminated the hatchback and wagon models. The Focus of this generation has a 2.0 liter Duratec. The engine produced for all 2008 Foci is a140-horsepower version with 136 foot-pounds of torque (2.3-liter Duratecs were discontinued). All non-PZEV coupes with standard transmission for the 2009 model year have 2.0-liter Duratecs with 140 horsepower.

The Focus is an award-winning car that attracts a high level of repeat buyers despite a considerable number of recalls. Improvements continue, and the 2005 Focus earned a Consumer Digest Best Buy rating in 2005.
