Ford released the Focus model bearing the Zetec engine in 2005 -- a move that established high standards for small vehicle handling. The car's sound control also successfully dampened the engine's operating noise.


An inline, dual-overhead-cam (DOHC) four-cylinder, 1.6-litre engine powered the Zetec, producing a respectable 100 horsepower at 6,000rpm and 107 pound-feet of torque at 4,000rpm (the amount of force required to turn a camshaft one full revolution). It had a 3.11-inch bore (the amount of space a piston has to enter an engine's combustion chamber), a 3.2 inch stroke (the distance a piston must travel each direction when entering and exiting a combustion chamber) and a displacement of 1,596 cubic cm (the amount of volume swept from an engine's pistons when completing a full cycle).


The Zetec came standard with rack-and-pinion steering. An independent, MacPherson strut-style, anti-roll-bar suspension provided stability in the front, and an independent, multi-link suspension with anti-roll bar stabilised the rear. Ventilated discs provided stopping power in the front, while the rear used a servo-assisted drum braking system.


The vehicle had an overall length of 163.5 inches, a height of 56.3 inches and a width of 66.9 inches. The Zetec had a wheelbase of 103 inches and a weight of 1077kg.
