Initail dealership order data

Hey fanatics,

So I had a few minutes to kill, and decided to survey all the dealership ordered 2012 Foci within a 20 mile radius of me. Here's what I came away with:

-There were 70 2012 Foci ordered within just 20 miles of me.
-The average price of all 70 was $22,257.
-The standard deviation of the price was +/- $2,331
-The most expensive Focus was $27835
-The least expensive Focus was $18090
-The most common color ordered by dealerships was sterling grey
-The most common trim level was the Hatchback SE (I found this surprising)

I'll leave you folks to make some of your own conclusions with the two graphs I've attached below. Note about the graphs: the numbers within each pie piece = percentage of total, not total number.





If you have any questions, I'd be happy to rearrange the data and crunch the numbers for ya.

-B

So, I basically picked the Focus for the gadgets. Auto-parking, auto-wipers, auto-headlights. myFordTouch, composite video in, garage door opener, dual zone auto temp controls. BlueTooth everything, AppLink with Pandora coming. Push button start. Auto chromatic rear viewer mirror.

Did I miss anything?
flux capacitor. oh and cant forget the dick sucker for long trips. I swear they will be in the seats of the cars of tomorrow with the amount of technology being dropped in these things now

not much surprise in the trims. I flipped through the salesman's '12 foci sales guide booklet when he walked away, it said they expected to sell mostly SE's. It also said that the market for the c-segmant was largely people aged 37-43, making $73-80k a year. Of those, 30% are willing to spend the extra money on higher technology. Does this sound right?

Sounds about right to me. However I don't fit either demographic (<30, <$73k/year). What was surprising to me was that the hatch out-ordered the sedan. I think you can attribute that to a younger demographic as well.

Today my dealer emailed me and said my car has an ETA of March 28th. We'll see how accurate that ends up being.

Well I was lucky enough a few weeks ago to win a trip to California for the Focus Rally America reality show and I WON a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium!!!!

I am so anxious to get my new car!!! I got to do a driving challenge against someone else who also won the trip to Cali and we got to drive the new Titanium model (the cars that were used for the show) and I absolutely loved the way it drove and loved it inside and out!!!!!

Thank you!!! Yes I did on the Focus Rally show.. they picked me to go out to California all expenses paid and I had no idea that I was going to be competing for a car while I was out there.. it was so much fun, I had to drive the new titanium through an obstacle course at Laguna Seca in reverse with no mirrors and back window was covered and all I had was the reverse camera on the navigation to see behind me lol.

I beat a MAN doing it too!!! lol
