Powertrains, Performance, and Efficiency
When you consider performance and efficiency, it’s easy to go by the numbers. Take a look at how these cars compare below:
- Focus Performance: The base Focus is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder engine that makes 132 hp. With automatic transmission, this powertrain earns 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway/31 mpg combined based on EPA estimates.
- Cruze Performance: The Chevy Cruze uses a 1.8L four-cylinder to generate 138 hp—obviously more than the Ford—and an EPA estimate of up 22 mpg city/35 mpg highway. You can also choose a 1.4L turbo four-cylinder good for get 138 hp and an EPA estimate of 26 mpg city/38 mpg highway, or a turbodiesel powertrain good for 151 hp, 264 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA estimated 27 mpg city/46 mpg highway.
You can see that the Cruze provides more muscle and more efficiency.
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
When you compare the warranty coverage that these two manufacturers offer, you’ll find a big difference. Chevy backs the Cruze for 100,000-miles/5-years of powertrain coverage and 100,000-miles/5-years of roadside assistance. Ford only offers 60,000-miles/5-years of powertrain coverage and 25,000-miles/2-years of roadside assistance.
Features and Options
There are some major differences when you consider the features lists on these two models. Maybe the most apparent difference is the standard OnStar telematics system in the Chevy. Ford doesn’t offer anything like this system. The Chevy also comes standard with remote keyless entry, a feature that’s missing on the Ford.
