In this episode, we test out the fuel economy in the all new 2017 Ford Focus. As a breadwinner in the Ford line-up, the Focus compares very well to its Japanese counterparts. Its key advantage is the amount of technology it packs, including the newly updated SYNC 3 infotainment system.
Our tester was equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Our test yielded 319 miles on a tank of gas and gave a decent average fuel economy of 30.6 miles per gallon.
After using up our tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $27.76 at a fuel cost of $2.33/gallon.
