If ordering starts today how can no one have posted an order guide yet??

I looked all over the internet and nothing! I asked imccrea a few days ago if there was a guide and he does not have it. Hopefully, it will pop up soon because I am (like you) curious about the changes.

Hi danyall2010,

Let me know if you have any specific questions and I'll be happy to verify information from the Order Guide for you. :)

Are there any powertrain changes? Such as a 1.5L Ecoboost or the like? 6-speed manual on the lower trim levels? Any new wheel options?

I'm also curious of the facias have been massaged as per the spy shots on the web but the order guide won't help with that.

Facelift is due for MY2015

The data I saw said MY2017, but that does seem to be a bit long (5 years vs 3 to the mid cycle refresh of an already refreshed platform).

Unfortunately a face lift would be like putting lipstick on a pig if they don't get the DCT issues fixed. I was at my dealer yesterday, they had a boat load of Focus and Fiestas on the lot that I was told are not moving too well. Salesperson said, a lot more people are mentioning the DCT and stating they read a lot of negatives about it.

I said, "you don't say"...

The sales numbers don't reflect that. In April the Focus, Corolla, Elantra and Cruze sales were all within a stones throw of each other. Only the Civic was significantly higher.

More Foci could be going to rental lots (again) but I've been at two rental lots recently and haven't seen any more Foci than the others. I had a Corolla in Pittsburgh over the last 2 days and a Cruze last week. Man I sure appreciate my Focus, flaws and all, after driving those two dogs.
