This article was a complete waste of time by a total douche-bag. The next Focus is designed to compete with the Golf in Europe and the US. The current Focus is designed to compete with Nissan Sentras, Toyota Carollas and base Civics. Completely different market segments. In fact, I'm quite positive that we will see LOWER volumes of new Focus sold, but Ford will be making more money on them.

I think this douche should start saying how the BMW 330 is so much nicer than the Fusion, or a Cayenne is more beautiful than an Explorer.

I just purchased my 2010 SES with full knowledge the 2012 was on it's way. I knew I wasn't going to pay over $20k on a fully loaded focus and seeing the estimated $27k is crazy. I paid $17k for my new 2010 SES with moon and tune and heated leather seats a little over a week ago and I will have no regrets and no intentions of purchasing a 2012.

Well I sure hope the new one is better. But the current one is a bad car at all. At least not as bad as he makes it out to be. Besides he's just commenting on styling which, let's face it, is very subjective.

I've never been a fan of the 05-08 styling. But the 2010 Sedan actually has a bit of appeal.

I like the 2010 SES darkout treatment, front and rear. Will keep this a few years, if nothing breaks. Will let the new 2012 "teeth" for a few years, before it is seriously looked at. If the RS does come to NA, then will look at that...a lot.

My wife really loves this car (compared to her new FIT), and prefers to drive it instead.

Got it loaded too. Some of the options are frivolous. You only live once.

Posted via FF Mobile I dont think a fully loaded focus will go north of 25k. Ill assume fully loaded out with every option and accessory will he like 24,500. I dont see the focus going north of 25k in NA forum. But the top focus dubbed the titanium ediion is going to have a ton of options including myford touch system, manual shift capable powershift transmission, heated steering wheel, heated/cooled seats, push button start, leather and leather wrapped dash...and when u include all the other usual options 25k is not that bad of a deal. The focus should be priced simiraly to the mazda3 and VWs golf and jetta. 17k is a good price for a fully loaded focus...and you probably would of got a mid range version of the 2012 focus. Which to be honest probably wouldnt of been bad at all lol.

Its going to be more expensive but people need to remeber it is going to be SIGNIFICANTLY better then the current focus.

^^ The only thing is,at the point that you're paying close to 25K for a loaded up Focus,you can get the same features in a Fusion for about the same price(or less if Ford decides to have rebates on it,which they likely will). And recently some of those have been going for $17-18K.

For $25k I would be taking a serious look at the 5.0 mustang even in basic trim.

It's going to be tough for me to hold back from buying the new 5.0, I can't wait to drive one.

Yeah. Heck even the V6 is supposed to have at least 300 HP

Also did a lot of soul-searching, with the Fusion, Fusion hybrid, and 'tang. The hybrid was crossed-out, because nearly all of my driving is highway. The 7 grand extra for it, didn't justify, in my case. My wife had a Fusion she traded for a FIT, and it was a very decent auto, but @ 26 mpg, was 9 mpg behind my first ('09) Focus. The Mustang did beckon, a lot, but the mpg would suffer, under my right foot.

I have an R1, which satisfied any craving for adrenaline. Can't ride any more, as of several weeks ago. After nearly 40 years of motorcycling, the last 25 with superbikes, it's a bitter pill.

Anyway, it would take a mondo ride, to supply the same rush as the R1.
