Monday August 8th, 2011 14:06 Ford Set to Unveil Five New Models at Frankfurt Motor Show

The 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show is shaping up nicely if you are a Ford enthusiast, as the Blue Oval are readying plans to launch an impressive five new models at the show. Visitors to the Ford stand at the motor show will also be able to see some of these new models in action, as the famous car manufacturer’s stand includes a 2,800m2 track.

Amongst the new models on display in Frankfurt will be an all-new design concept car that will showcase Ford’s future styling direction. Although this concept car will not hit the road until 2014, it will apparently reveal the company’s latest family-look. According to a Ford spokesperson, this concept car is “seventy to eighty percent confirmed for production” and displaying it at the Frankfurt Motor Show will afford the company an “opportunity to take customer feedback on board before finalising the design.”

In addition to the concept car, Ford will be showcasing two new performance versions of the popular Focus and Fiesta models in Frankfurt. The Focus ST is fitted with a new fuel efficient 2.0-litre direct injection engine, and is capable of producing around 247bhp. This should enable it to reach a top speed of around 155mph, while also allowing it to reach 62mph from a standing start in under six seconds.

The Focus ST will be joined at the Frankfurt Motor Show by the Fiesta ST, the B-MAX and the Ford Ranger pick-up. The new Fiesta model will feature a 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine capable of producing around 200bhp.

The Frankfurt Motor Show runs from the 13th of September until the 25th of September, and is open to the public from the 15th.

A new and dynamic Ford Focus Coupe will arrive in 2012. This Ford Focus is modelled after the Focus MK III and will take the place of the departing three-door hatch. This automobile, released by Blue Oval, is reportedly going to debut at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.

There is a possibility that if the Ford Focus Coupe makes its way to assembly, that consumers will be able to purchase one. A source says that designers have spent much of this year exploring the concept of the Ford Focus Coupe. The Ford Focus gets its modification from the Focus ST. However, the form is stretched and widened; therefore, it is long and low. At the front of the vehicle, there is a wide grill; at the back, there is a sharp sloping screen.

This car and will sits on the expansion of the ST’s front-wheel-drive frame and will share the identical traction-boost vectoring system, yet it has a broader track to help stability. Because of a mixture of intake and exhaust tuning that offers a gentle note on small throttle openings and a noise at piercing revs, the car will emit and electrifying sound. Speculation is that the Ford Focus will use a commanding 2.0 litre Ecoboost four-cylinder engine with 247 horsepower. As a result, the car will go from 0 to 60 mph in six seconds and have a top speed of 155 mph. It will have diesel engines and lower-powered petrol. This new Ford will be a very vibrant and exhilarating vehicle.
