2012 Focus coming to showrooms soon!

Hey fanatics,

I have been continuously bugging dealerships around where I live (Southern California) and have been told by one that they are to receive a 2012 Focus on March 3rd for training. I'm sure they'll be around for test drives by the end of March. Just wanted to let everyone know!

You will be quite impressed when your dealer gets one in

Awesome! Can anyone who has driven them confirm or deny the issue of the automatic grille shutters? I know this is , but this whole thing is still buggin' me!

Thanks, and I can't wait to test drive this thing!

I did come across the following Ford document which mentions the Active Shutters without mentioning the SFE package.

My girlfriend lives right near the Focus assembly plant in Michigan here, and they have TONS of 2012 Focus out in the parking lot. If I'm out that way anytime this week I'll stop and snap some pictures.

They are corfirmed on the SFE package, its still unclear if they're installed on the Titanium model. The lesser models definitely do not get them.

Please try to snap some real-world photos of the various types of wheel options. Would also love to see some real-world photos of a black, grey, and blue hatch either in SEL or Titanium trim.

Thanks -- I'm sure everyone here would appreciate if you followed through on this. You'd be tha man.

Otherwise, we'll all just have to wait 2-3 weeks til we can see these on lots ourselves.
