Ford has unveiled the next-generation Focus at the 2010 North American International Auto Show. The new 2012 Ford Focus is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injected four cylinder producing 155 hp and 145 lb-ft. The engine uses Ford’s Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing and will be paired with choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed dual-clutch gearboxes. Highway mileage is expected to be in the 40 mpg range.

The Focus will come in four- and five-door hatch varieties when it first hits the U.S. market. It will benefit from the tech-filled new MyFord system that debuted at 2010 CES last week.

According to AutoBlog Ford also confirmed during its press conference this morning that a Focus Electric is due to arrive in 2012, with a hybrid version arriving the next year – both of which will be built in Michigan. [Detroit News via AutoBlog]
