2014 Ford Focus vs. 2014 Chevrolet Cruze
It’s not every day that you come across a sedan that delivers plenty of standard performance, offers a smooth, confident ride, and intelligent, convenient amenities, but the 2014 Ford Focus has it all. Drivers in the Plainfield and Naperville areas can find the new Ford Focus right here at River View Ford in Oswego!
While looking into other popular sedans in the same segment, you might also discover the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. It is certainly a comparable vehicle, but it doesn’t come close to what the new Ford Focus is capable of.
- More Power on Demand: Speed fans will really enjoy the 2.0L DOHC engine under the hood of the 2014 Ford Focus. It puts out 160 hp and 146 lb.-ft. of peak torque for acceleration when you need it. The 2014 Chevy Cruze’s standard 1.8L engine only received a 138 hp rating and a 125 lb.-ft. torque rating.
- Efficiency: Do you take frequent road trips? The 2014 Ford Focus makes vacations an affordable reality thanks to its impressive fuel efficiency. When the 2.0L I-4 engine is mated to the six-speed automatic transmission, the new Ford Focus gets an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The new Chevy Cruze gets an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, which means the Ford Focus will have you spending less time and money filling the tank.
- Comfortable Drive: Thanks to the fully independent front and rear suspension systems, the wheels of the 2014 Ford Focus have the best traction on the pavement without sacrificing ride comfort. The 2014 Chevy Cruze uses a rear torsion beam axle and a semi-independent rear suspension, so there is not nearly as much pavement gripping capability and drivability is somewhat compromised.
