Customers in the Bradley area searching for a mid-size sedan have a lot of great options to choose from these days. Popular models like the 2014 Ford Focus and the 2014 Chevy Cruze have become hugely popular for good reason. However, the new Ford Focus comes out on top over the new Chevy Cruze when it comes to performance, fuel economy, handling, and convenience, not to mention that it’s conveniently available here at Terry’s Ford in Peotone!

  • Take on the Open Road: The standard powertrain offering under the hood of the 2014 Ford Focus is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. It’s capable of 160 hp and 146 lb-ft of maximum torque for fast acceleration on demand. This is a much higher output than the standard 1.8L DOHC engine that powers the 2014 Chevy Cruze, as it only puts out 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque.
  • Drive Longer For Less: With that kind of performance difference, you would think that the 2014 Ford Focus would be less fuel-efficient than the 2014 Chevy Cruze. However, when equipped with the available 6-speed automatic transmission, the new Ford Focus gets an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, beating out the Cruze’s 22 mpg city/35 mpg hwy.
  • Smooth Ride: For better control at highway speeds, the 2014 Ford Focus uses speed sensitive variable-assist power steering that delivers a tuned, responsive road feel. Coupled with the new Focus’ standard independent front and rear suspensions, overall ride comfort is at an all-time high. The 2014 Chevy Cruze does not offer speed sensitive variable-assist steering or a fully independent suspension.
