Top 10 June 2011 car sales show Focus moved up to #6.
Yeah, I haven't seen a single commercial myself. Don't know if it because they can't even keep up with the ones on order or what but they made such a big deal when they announced they would be bringing this model to N. America that I am surprised they are not out there telling people.I'll bet if Ford did a little more advertising they would sell way more Focuses. I never see any commercials on the 2012 Focus. There is one for the fusion and guess what, that car is selling really well.
Agreed and well said.Here is my theory about current sales numbers.
1) The Cruze is a new name, new car. People will always check out something new.
2) Focus is an old name associated with an econo box, perhaps not a past segment leader.
Lots of people won't even give it a glance thinking it's just the 2012 version of the same ole same ole.
I only went to look because a co-worker said he read several reviews and checked it out on the lot already.
3) Ford seems to be behind keeping up with current Dealer and individual orders.
Why ask for trouble by advertising and having customers flood the dealers where there is very little inventory.
4) Once the dust settles and the factory is able to increase production, I am
100% sure that our 2012 Focus will be #3 or #4 within just a couple of months. Ahead of the Cruze![thankyou]
That, and dealers finally getting some inventory. Most around me only have 1 or 2. Ford might want to think about bringing a second plant online to keep up with demand.For sure. Cruze had a 6 month head start on the new 2012 Focus. But if current trends continnue, Focus will outsell Cruze within the next month or two. All the automotive magazines have rated the Focus ahead of the Cruze. It's just taking awhile for the American buying public to wake up to that fact.
