What performance options are available on the 2018 Ford Focus? 

For a majority of drivers, the most important feature of their vehicle is its ability to take them from one place to another without any trouble. However, there are also drivers who want a vehicle that is fun and powerful whether they’re getting groceries or tearing up the track. No matter which category you fall into, the 2018 Ford Focus has a model with performance options that will fit your needs. 

On the 2018 Ford Focus, there are six different trim levels when you include the two performance options. Drivers who are looking for a more traditional drive will likely want to take a look at the 2018 Ford Focus S, SE, SEL, or Titanium. For the more performance-driven consumers, the 2018 Ford Focus ST and RS provide high-powered engines that are at home on a track or the road. With all of those trim levels, it’s no wonder that the 2018 Ford Focus has four different engine choices.
