Customers visiting Jennings Ford’s Middlesbrough, Stockton and Gateshead dealerships are taking advantage of the latest model in the expanding Ford family.

The beginning of 2012 witnessed another welcome addition to the Ford stable at the group’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership, following the arrival of the new five-door Ford Focus Zetec S.

Based on the existing Zetec model, the new Zetec S model adds a full sports styling kit including unique front and rear spoilers with lower sill extensions and 17-inch alloy wheels together with sports suspension featuring stiffened springs and dampers, aluminium style sports pedals, rear LED tail lamps and a Ford Power starter button.

The new Ford Zetec S model is available with a choice of four engines including the ‘headline’ 1.6-litre 180PS (178bhp) EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine which has a top speed of 138 mph, reaches 0-62mph in just 7.9 seconds and emits only 139g/km CO2.

Any Focus chosen with this engine or the 1.6-litre 115PS (114bhp) TDCi will carry the ECOnetic Technology badge, as they benefit from auto start-stop Ford ECO mode, gear shift indicator, active grille shutter and smart regenerative charging.

The 1.6-litre 125PS (123bhp) Ti-VCT petrol and the 2.0-litre 162PS (160bhp) TDCi are also available and can be specified with either manual or PowerShift automatic transmission.

Colin Massey, sales manager at the group's Jennings Ford dealership in Middlesbrough, said;

“The new Zetec S model is proving to be a success with customers. The model adds sharpness and sporting looks to the Focus range with the added bonus that customers can take advantage and enjoy low running costs. It certainly whets the appetite not only for the forthcoming Focus ST later this year, but also for other exciting models which are scheduled to be launched by Ford throughout the year.”

The full Ford range is on display at Jennings Ford's dealerships across the region. Everything from the funky Ford Ka, refined Fiesta, spacious Fusion and the popular Focus and Mondeo family hatchbacks to the practical and stylish C-MAX, trendy sport utility Kuga and fashionable multi-purpose Galaxy and S-MAX, is available for an immediate test drive.
