Not too long ago, buying a compact car meant you got bare bones features. Now, that has changed completely. In fact, some base-level compact cars can come with better and more standard equipment than their larger and more expensive counterparts. We think that is the case with the 2017 Ford Focus. It comes packed with excellent technology features that you can see for yourself with a test drive at Bill Walsh Ford today.


Ford is making connecting with your vehicle easier than ever. The available FordPass app that you install on your smartphone helps bring the future of transportation to you. With this app, you can find and pay for parking before you even leave your house. And, you can keep track of your vehicle's service needs right from your phone. Also, when your car does need some attention, you can easily schedule a service appointment through the app.



The available SYNC 3 system gives you the next-generation of Ford connectivity. It features advanced voice-recognition software to more accurately recognize what you are saying; that lets you find your favorite music, make a call, or navigate to a new destination (if equipped) with just your voice.

With the built-in SYNC AppLink, some of your favorite apps can be used right on the SYNC 3 screen, including Pandora, Spotify, Slacker Radio, and more. In addition, SYNC 3 is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to make pairing your smartphone easier and more intuitive than ever.

Driver Assist

Modern technology gives drivers an extra set of eyes on the road. The Focus comes standard with a rearview camera that gives you a clear image of what is behind you while backing up. There are also other available features for even more security, including a Reverse Sensing System, a Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert, a Lane-Keeping System, and active park assist.
