The 2001 Ford Focus was offered in three different body styles; three-door hatchback, wagon and four door sedan. The LX and SE trim packages came standard with a 2.0-litre, 110 HP four-cylinder engine. The sportier ZX3 and ZTS models received 20 additional horsepower from the 2.0-litre power plant. No matter what trim package your 2001 Ford Focus has, you may wish to install a high-performance aftermarket stereo system or replace a defective radio with a factory replacement unit. Removing your original radio from your 2001 Ford Focus is an easy task provided you have the correct tools.
