Sold out for build your own?

Seems early, but possible?

Very possible I guess. They probably have a limit of how many 1.0's are made. But it seems early. When do the 2017 models begin production?

OK, that far ahead, I'm assuming it's a glitch on the website. Though it's several days old by now. Could be the 1.0 is just sucking dust, even with the new auto? Would be a shame to remove this option. Just can't see it.

Can't see it at all, right now we're guessing at the 1.0 & 1.5 Ecoboost engines as the next types for the '18 (17??)

Gosh I hope so! 1.5 turbo in the Focus would be awesome! As long as a manual is offered of course. Otherwise it's a Mazda 3 manual. Great car but bleh looks. Which also is supposed to come out with a turbo model in 2018 I think.

Yes the MY2018 MK4 Focus will be built in a Mexican Plant.

Here is the Dearborn Engine Plant (DEP) bulletin to the employees Jan/Feb 2016 newsletter regarding the new engine notice.

This year is a pivotal year for DEP as we are in the middle of launching the B515 engine for South America and beginning to install the facility upgrades for the C519 engines. In the future these engine programs have our engine
going into additional vehicles beyond the Focus that we currently support. For many reasons including low gas prices, sales of the Focus continues to drop and as MAP reduces schedule we reduce also. We have announced that we will reduce a shift of machining this spring to balance the volume. We will continue to have to adjust capacity to demand this year but are hopeful that with next year’s launches of B515/C519 we will start to regain volume.

The program code #s B515 is the EcoSport, and C519 is MK4 Focus

can't see a 1.0 here either but can in a fiesta , maybe ford is out of short for other models or dropping it from the focus .
post wise from the op I see euro tags on the car, snow on the ground and a jumper box on the battery, could that possibly be a euro model with a diesel engine hidden under the engine cover?
also off the subject I saw a f150 in part camo on the bed with manufacture tags that when accelerating let loose with the load sound and smoke of a diesel from the exhaust in my town heading for the ski area the last day it was open.
