Looks Like the 2019 Ford Focus Won’t be Available in America

If you’ve been thinking about getting a Ford Focus, now’s the time to head to your local AutoNation Ford dealer — because it sounds like its days are numbered. Our friends at Jalopnik recently spoke with a representative from Ford, and while the Focus Active was slated to remain on the menu in the U.S., it sounds like recent trade negotiations have made it tough to justify bringing over the Chinese-built compact.

Meet the Ferocious 2019 Ford Shelby GT: Video

Legendary racer and car builder Carroll Shelby starting working his magic on the Ford Mustang over half a century ago, and today, the company he founded continues that proud tradition. The latest version of the Blue Oval’s popular pony car made its public debut at Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise over the weekend, and as you’d expect, the 2019 Ford Shelby GT is a block-rocking beast as intimidating as the venomous snake it sports on its badge.
