Is there any way the competition can compete with an automotive lineup that features multiple sedan trim levels, multiple hatchback trim levels, a pair of Ford Performance models, all the fun to drive power you could ever need, and money-saving fuel economy to boot? Oh, and let’s not forget that this is all paired with a comprehensive suite of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features.
If you think a model lineup can’t possibly offer all of these things, then you’ve apparently never taken the time to check out the new Ford Focus lineup at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL.
