I really hope we get some molds for the new Focus at work. It would be cool to be a part of making it.

I was considering waiting to get the 2012 rather than the '11.

But my free 02' Taurus that was handed down from my father just keeps falling apart and I didn't want to dump anymore money into so I settled. Plus is painful to drive lol.

But also rumoured price wise its going tobe more expensive. Mine cost $19,900 on the road and they gave me $2000 for the Taurus so $17,900 total. ( Canadian Dollars)

I doubt you'll find a 2012 for that price.

No, probably not. The 2012 focus will be a much much better car. You get what you pay for.

A base 2012 Focus S should start right around $17,000 USD. I'm getting an SE 5 door hatchback w/Powershift so I'm guessing the msrp will be right around $19,500 - $20,000 USD. Of course, I've never paid msrp for a car so this doesn't really mean much and the "s" in msrp simply means "suggested". The Focus is a mass produced car.
The new Focus's are expected to be priced competitively. As stated above the new 2012 Mk3 Focus is going to be a dramatically improved compact car. It will most likely be like nothing we've experienced previously in the C-segment here in the U.S. and Canada. Our friends to the south (Mexico) already have the excellent Mk2 Focus. Heck, even China got the Mk2 Focus.

^^I will never understand the rationale for why even China got the MkII while Ford denied its home country customers.

Money. Ford said it would have cost too much to update Wayne Assembly to produce it. Michigan Truck's retool, now Michigan Assembly Plant, is being paid for by low-cost Government loans.

few images of the 5 door production Focus zero camo

UK autoweek has said to expect UK deliveries in March 2011.






translated from autoweek Dutch

"Yesterday I mocked the new Ford Focus when shopping in Eindhoven. I decided to follow the car for a while, and eventually parked the test driver in a car materials business. . I have some pictures of the car. Look, we appreciate that kind of assertiveness in the office now! For shiny and polished on a rotating plateau may look nice, a really believes you can only sheets on the streets as the car turns up.
Ford Focus unveiled in January of this year at the NAIAS in Detroit.
The public debut of the wagon followed the Geneva Motor Show (March). We must still wait until early next year we can focus on the dealers welcome. End of this year are still the first C-Max C-Max and Grand on the program.
The new Focus is just like the Fiesta a 'world car', on different continents on the market.
The base engine has a displacement of 1.6 liters, the top version is the ST with 2.0-liter turbo engine.
Which has an output of 240 hp, a concept car for the car shows off at the Paris Motor Show . The Focus has available facilities such as MyFord, Ford's version of iDrive.

Rear end and sides remind me of a Volvo. Not like thats a bad thing.

Thanks Carl for posting these excellent pics! This is the exact Focus that I want in the same color (I believe that's Kona Blue Metallic). This looks fantastic! I love it, love it, love it! This Focus has my name all over it.
