Spy Shots: 2001 Ford Focus AWD
Europe gets a shot at all-weather economy.
by Brenda Priddy
Although Ford recently announced it was canceling all further R&D on a compact minivan based on the current Focus platform, Ford is actively testing an all-wheel-drive version. This picture, shot just one week ago in Sweden, confirm Ford's commitment to the small car-based SUV. Sources in Europe say the AWD Focus will not come to the States, but will fill the gap in other markets. Could it be they've run out of names beginning with "E"?
