2003 News Article
- Anything that lasts 100 years is remarkable, if for no other reason than it lasted 100 years. Well, maybe it's not that remarkable if a redwood lives to 100, but you get the idea. The Ford Motor Company celebrates a full century of existence during 2003 and it's doing so with five "Centennial Edition" vehicles, including this Focus sedan.
All the Centennials are, like Ford's founding success, the Model T, available only in black. They all also get "Verona-grain Imola leather seating surfaces in two-tone parchment," the obligatory 100th Anniversary deck lid and side badges, a commemorative key chain, a commemorative watch, and a commemorative limited edition book called "The Ford Century." Beyond all that commemoration, the Focus also gets 16-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, fog lamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a stereo with AM and FM and CD and MP3. Otherwise, it's pretty much a standard Focus sedan.
