Typical Ford Marketing Guy?
We hear a lot about how Europeans get this cool stuff because their cars cost so much more but a lot of that extra cost of the car is in VAT and other taxes that we in NA don't pay not from the content of the cars.
The average sticker price of a Focus over in Europe is considerably higher because there Ford doesn't have a shit reputation to deal with. They are actually known for making cars worth buying.
Tell the American to spend 30k on a Focus and they'll laugh in your face. Hell tell an American to pay that much for a FORD and they'll laugh.
