The all-new Ford Focus was revealed today, and although we were left to guess which of the five presented models will eventually land in the United States, one seems almost assured. The Ford Focus Active will feature a raised suspension and more rugged styling flourishes, including black body cladding.

Fresh puns appear on the Focus

Once again, the new Ford Focus small sedan has appeared with a thin vinyl wrap. It's a newer design than the last one, and one with more puns. It has a pop-art look with some cartoon, no pun intended, speech bubbles, one of which has the oh-so-clever phrase, "We've got to keep this under wraps!" It has the same hashtag as the last few Focuses we've seen "#TimeToFocus."
