I'm planning on purchasing (if the pricing works out right) a Focus sedan in about a month or so and had a few questions for you.
What I'm looking at:
- Titanium Sedan (Auto)
- Sterling Gray
- Premium Package, Parking Tech, Moonroof, Handling Package, Navigation
On Ford's website, that comes out to $26,525.
What's the best plan/package I should shoot for to get me the best price? I've seen things about the A/Z and X-Plans, but I'm not entirely sure how they work. For what it's worth, I'm the military so I'm entitled to those discounts as well.
Also, I saw you were saying that the build cut off is 5/17. Does that mean that if no dealerships have what I want in stock (or can't do a dealer trade), I'm out of luck? When will they start taking orders for custom models again? I'm assuming that when it does pick back up, it'll be for the 2013 MY. Are there any changes coming around?
There are only 4 in the US equipped like this. 1 in OH, 1 in NJ, 1 in NY, 1 in WA.
You can order a 13 but there could be differences. As for pricing you get the $500 no matter what for military, then there is a $1,000 incentive as well.
As for pricing if you qualify for X plan I would suggest that route as there aren't too many available. You can also order if you want vs taking one from these states.
