I had the same thing happen . . .had two dealers poised to get me one of the first Focus ST's made and then saw the 2013 Escape . . . all my wishes were answered.
3,500 Class 2 trailering
Bike rack (tried everything I could to fit a bike in the Focus)
Ordered the 2013 Escape Titanium identical to the 2012 Focus Titanium. . .with every available option. . . and expect delivery in a couple weeks.
Interesting to see that they are selling above MSRP in a couple places.
Reading the various reviews . . .it looks like Ford has another home run on their hands.
