With the available six-speed PowerShift transmission in Focus, you get the performance of a manual from an automatic. It delivers seamless gear changes for amazing responsiveness. This new 6-speed automatic transmission cleverly selects the next appropriate gear at precisely the right moment for lightning-fast gear changes, with no disruption to the flow of power. Fuel economy is improved, compared to a conventional automatic too. It also has a manual mode that allows you to switch gears at the flick of the shifter, but without the need for a clutch pedal.
