Southern Ontario... Lots and lots of Titaniums and SELs around. Even the rental cars are Titaniums :/

And yes, I'm one of those people who shelled out 30k for a loaded Ti :p

Ford has a rather interesting mix of buyer demographics when you consider who is buying the Focus. Like you, I too traded in a luxury car, Lexus RX 400h and I opted for a loaded Ti. Prior to the Lexus, I drove a Merc E500. Folks who are used to spending $40-60k+ on cars, don't even blink an eyelash at paying nearly $30k for a loaded Focus. It seems like a great deal by comparison. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you have an entirely different demographic, the young, first-time car buyer with no or limited credit or just those folks with a limited budget. It's interesting to consider such a wide margin of demographics and I'd say that this is unique to Ford and other cars similiarly priced, than the luxo-japanese and european brands. I don't think you'll find the same diversity (in terms of income) with brands like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, etc...

True. U.S. prices with nearly all the boxes checked puts a loaded Ti in the $25k range.

We got our 2013 Titanium hatchback for $23,900. Tri-coat white, 18" wheels, parking assist, moonroof, navigation, etc. Our dealer had two and the other one didn't have a moonroof and was candy blue.

Fully loaded Titaniums are not too common, that is one with all the options. The dealer I bought mine does not seem to stock any with the handling package, interior options (white or tuscany red), auto parking or moon roof. None of which I really wanted to pay for anyways. All tend to be 300A packages, with the paint options and that's it.

Another dealer I did not even bother going to due to bad reviews has the direct opposite in inventory.

Like I said previously, living in a tourist area of South Florida, I see lot's of barcoded Focuses over actually owned, I know they rent Titanium Fusions, but I have not seen a Focus Titanium rental yet.
