I do believe the ford rep was hinting at the loaded titanium but that was just an assumption on my part.

Lets hope your right! The direct competition is the MS3/GTI and those are 23/24. If focus can start 24-25k with base model being pretty optioned out it will be a winner. Power of the ms3 with the fuel economy (or more) of the GTI. Handling should be on spec with both and interior just as nice (or nicer) than the Vdub.

As long as I dont have a long commute (5-10 miles to work or so) the Mustang GT/2011 WRX are still really high on my list. If I end up changing to a commute the ST will probably be number one as I will need ever bit of that 30-40mpg the ecoboost can squeeze out.

Anyone have insider info on the release date? I keep hearing 2012 but wondering if its going to be a 2013 model in 2012 or if we might see it any earlier?
