2018 Ford Focus vs 2018 Chevrolet Cruze

2018 Ford Focus vs 2018 Chevy Cruze

While automotive companies strive to make sure their lineups offer something for everyone, it’s hard to do that with just a single model lineup, at least until the 2018 Ford Focus lineup came along. That’s because the new Ford Focus lineup offers a huge array of models and trim levels to choose from, including sedans, hatchbacks, powerful ST models, hybrids and electric vehicles. In other words, unless you’re looking for a pickup truck or a large SUV, the 2018 Focus lineup has you covered.

This lineup versatility is unprecedented in the automotive industry today. Sure, some other model lineups – such as the new Chevrolet Cruze lineup – will try to emulate it, but none come close to matching the power, efficiency and capability of the new Ford Focus lineup. To see what we mean, check out this 2018 Ford Focus versus 2018 Chevrolet Cruze head-to-head model comparison.

We spent our introduction telling you all about how versatile the 2018 Ford Focus lineup is, and now we’re going to show you just how many choices you have when picking out a new Ford Focus from us here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA. Not only do you get to choose between a sedan and a hatchback, you also get to choose from a lineup of three engines and four transmissions – including both manual and automatic transmission choices. And, in case you’re wondering, the most powerful 2018 Focus engine is a 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine capable of pumping out 252 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.

The 2018 Chevrolet Cruze lineup, on the other hand, offers only two engines and three transmissions to choose from. And as for the new Chevrolet Cruze lineup’s maximum power ratings, well there’s a bit of a caveat there. That’s because the maximum horsepower rating of 153 horsepower comes with its gas engine, while the maximum torque rating of 240 pound-feet comes with its diesel engine option.

As far as cargo space is concerned, the two models are quite evenly matched, with the 2018 Focus offering more hatchback cargo capacity and the 2018 Cruze offering slightly more sedan cargo capacity.
