Ask Ford
Q.

When will the 2013 Focus Wagon be released in America ?

A.

There are no plans for the Focus Wagon in North America at this time. For more hauling space in a compact vehicle, we will be launching the all-new Ford Escape later this year. It has a similar footprint to the Focus Wagon and much of the same cargo-hauling functionality, but it has the added benefit of available four-wheel-drive capability! Check it out.

LB I am very frustrated that I can't buy a Focus wagon in the US.  I have no intention of buying a small suv such as the Escape and I don't want to have to pay for Euro parts in a Euro wagon.  The Focus hathcback doesn't have enough cargo room for me.  I would definately buy the Focus Wagon if I could but Ford is loosing my business since I can't get it.  Grrrr!!

systemBuilder America prefers a "Stupid Utility Vehicle" (like the Escape) to a Wagon (which gets 20% better gas mileage, I'm certain, with equivalent cargo space).

NL My 2007 Focus wagon is an excellent vehicle- efficient, roomy, versatile and economical. I live in snowy-slippery PA, and have never gotten stuck in my Focus- i believe 4WD is more marketing than function; I know 4WD is much more costly to buy and to operate.I WILL NOT buy an Escape or any whatever-UV type vehicle.Please bring the Focus Wagon back!

Arlene Arlene I made the huge mistake of replacing my 2007 focus wagon with a Honda Crv. Huge mistake (no punn intended). I just spent a week in Europe where the Ford Focus wagon is everywhere. I won't buy a ford till they bring it back. I loved my Wagon.

Margaret R Listen up Ford Motor Co. Your loyal market is calling you. US drivers deserve the Ford Focus Wagon. SUV's won't do it for us. We want the wagon - better gas mileage and more economical pricing. I don't want to look at other brands, but if you are not willing to listen, I will have to do so.

michele Wanting to replace my 2006 focus wagon. Have a teenager that's driving now so i plan on passing it onto him. I really want another focus wagon but you no longer offer it...I don't understand. I don't want an suv or crossover. I'm only 5 foot tall and they just don't work for me. I have many family members who work for ford so I have always been loyal to the brand and of course want to buy an american product. Unfortunately you are forcing me to consider buying a vw jetta wagon tdi or subaru which I never thought I would do. My family is going to disown me. :(

Steve Bennett I have a 2001 Focus Wagon with 156,000 miles. I have been ready to replce the Focus Wagon with another Focus wagon. I have been waiting for Ford to sell the Focus wagon in the USA. I need a sedan style wagon that is lower wieght, good fuel economy, can seat 4 and has a low profile. This description does not fit the Ford Escape nor the Ford Flex. Please Ford bring the Focus Wagon back to the USA. I have been a Ford owner since 1985 prefer to stay with Ford rather than buying the VW Jetta Wagon - which is sold in the USA!

Andrew S. I will never buy a SUV. Period. I am patiently waiting for Chevy, Ford, Honda or Toyota to name a few, to release a wagon that they already make for European consumers. Until then I will just try to keep my 2000 Ford Focus wagon limping along.

Su I am renting an escape now. It is not as comfortable for me as a car. For some of us shorter people, the dashboard to seat to floor distances lead to fatigue when driving. The focus wagon looks perfect. I was so excited. I can not believe it is not for sale here.

Jtan W^3 (WeWantWagons) - 200hp detuned 2.0 ecoboost, 1.6L ecoboost with mild hybrid or turbo diesel in stylish wagon format. This "Ford" man drives an A3 because Ford hasn't been offering what we are asking for. If you want us "car guys" to be the grass roots advertising firm you have to give us what we want. Peer influence is what moves a market, not Sunday night commercials.

Andrew An Escape is an overweight, oversized pudding with about the same packaging efficiency as using a swim ring as a plant pot. Small and mid CUVs and SUVs are not a replacement for my Escort Wagon, which actually has more behind seat and seats down cargo room than 90% of that segment, and continually embarrasses those pointless egomobiles when loading up at Home Depot.

mark I have a 2005 Focus wagon that i love. But when it needs replacing it will be a Jetta Diesel wagon that will be in my driveway. The gas prices in Canada are far more than the USA (presenlty 1.48 liter thats $5.60 a gallon !!) so you will never see me in any truck SUV or other style.
1 year(s) ago via
Eric Afraid I have to agree. The Escape is a heavy, clunky SUV, hardly in the wagon category. The Focus wagon was one of the nicest cars around. Makes no business sense to me to stop offering a car for this category. Will reluctantly have to buy elsewhere.

Budil D Yes yes yes I have seen the Focus Wagon for 2013 online I'd like to see it on the road in the USA! I have driven the small wagons for many years first Escort and then Focus. I LOVE those cars. Why did they disappear? I never understand manufacturers. My current Focus Wagon is reliable and user friendly and it FITS in my garage and small city parking spaces. It hauls instruments and lighting equipment and vacation baggage with ease. PLEASE bring the Focus Wagon back..and maybe a Hybrid version too!

John Hallfrisch I have a relative who works at Ford and states Ford believes Americans do not want small wagons or diesel engines. They need to think again because as an owner of a 2005 VW Passat TDI wagon and a 2007 Focus wagon we are looking to get new small wagons and would like to buy American. Please offer station wagons and diesel engines and they will sell in the USA, Canada and Mexico; they sell in Europe. We do not want SUVs.

Charles Ditto, don't like tall SUV's with poor fuel economy compared to cars. Currently have a 2001 ZX3 and 2009 Jetta Wagon. The Jetta wagon really suits our lifestyle and I'd like something similar to replace my 2001 ZX3. I'd buy a Focus wagon in a heartbeat, but if it's not for sale in the US I'll look at other alternatives, VW, Subaru, Acura, etc.

RDP Ford just don't get it. I don't want a stupid tall SUV - I want a real car with awd that also has cargo. It's called a sportswagon. Audi, BMW, Subaru - even Cadillac get's it. I would love to buy a Ford but Ford just doesn't offer any product that interests me. I still want to support North American so I'm looking at a Cadillac CTS 3.6 awd sportwagon.

Bob Current car-2005 Focus SES ZXW. Great car! 180,000 miles! I've only replaced the alternator, front brakes, and sway bar links. Would like another wagon, but the exhaust pipes are in the center, and I don't think you can attach a hitch. I have a small trailer that hauls a sound system so I'd have to go with the hatch. Unless they make a normally aspired wagon. My car is a great utility vehicle as well as a commuter vehicle.

John No thanks. I don't want an Escape; worse fuel economy, more expensive tires, harder to use the roof rack... Why is it so hard to find a car I actually want to buy? Sorry, but my Focus wagon is going to be replaced by something other than a Ford. It's a shame, because this is the car I'd actually like to buy.

James S Somebody asks for a Wagon and Ford suggests a four wheel drive suv? Ford you don't get it. If somebody wants to buy a Wagon that means they don't want a suv or a crossover. What you should say is if you want a Wagon take a look at the VWJetta.

wes Maybe Ford should do a focus group about a Focus Wagon. it's obvious there is a market for an American made wagon even if its falling of deaf ears in Detroit.

c My 1993 Ford Escort, purchased new and the only car I have ever owned, badly needs to be replaced. (It has run smoothly without any serious problems for nearly 20 years and 225K miles. ) I too have been considering a Subaru because I want another wagon. Just this week I saw a Focus wagon and knew that was the model i wanted. I started doing the research only to find they are not available here in the US. When will they be available here? I will not purchase an SUV. I prefer something roomy but with better gas mileage. I am willing to wait until I find something I really like, but if Subaru is the only wagon on the market, they will get my business...

I am now resigned to the fact I will have to buy a foreign car for the first time, probably the VW Sportwagon, in order to get another compact wagon. If they brought over the ST wagon from Europe I would order one next week.

Erick My father bought his first wagon in 1991, a Taurus, and over the next 17 years, went threw that car and 4 more escort wagons. I learned to drive in one of these, and liked it because it was compact, had great millage, lots of space in the interior, lots of foot room, as we are both very tall with big feet and long legs, and, as he always said, "Don't get a car without enough room to put two canoes on the roof, and all your gear in the back." Now this was in a car with more than 30 mpg, and a SMALL ENGINE, which automaticly has good millage. Its a shame that I can't get something new like that now, because there must be some consperacy in the US against efficency for little cost, for those escorts all had very little fancy technology, which made it easy to fix, and hard to break. The least I will ask Ford for is to bring back that kind of wagon, as of its nostalgic value and of its great inexpensive usefulness. SUV's are too big and hungry, and I've been driving on ice and snow with front wheel drive for nearly a decade, so 4WD isn't much use to me. Give us the Focus Wagon, and put yourself back on the path to sucess.

Larry I use a roof rack for kayaks, bicycles, and lumber. A wagon is the perfect vehicle for this, due to the long roof line, and low height. A small SUV is just too tall, too short, and too heavy to be as useful and fuel efficient as a small wagon.

Peter Guise I am the owner of a 2007 Focus Wagon. There is obviously a market for a small wagon as I have been contacted by every Ford Dealer in the area where I live about selling mine. They have all either been politely ignored or in the case of one who tried to contact me by phone repeatedly , told that the car is not for sale when they finally reached me on a Sunday evening. Ford may think that they know what the market wants but for many of us, the Escape is the automotive equivalent of New Coke. (And look how well that turned out ). The Escape and other SUV's just don't work for example if you want a fuel efficient vehicle that you can get elderly parents into easily when you need to. (Not to mention their wheel chairs) because they are too high. With an aging population, this is going to become more and more of an issue as time goes on. Ford needs to get a clue that they have a market in the states just waiting for a Focus wagon.

Jon W. Did anyone else feel a little insulted by the idea of the Escape being offered as an alternative to a wagon? "Oh, you want a fuel-efficient, stylish, and practical vehicle? Well, how about this top-heavy SUV!" We've been pretty loyal to Ford -- five Mustangs, two Focus Wagons, a Ranger and a ZX5, but honestly, it looks like the next purchase is going to have to be a BWM if Ford doesn't start listening. Folks are literally begging you, Ford.

Lou Americans wear their cars they don't drive them. That said Ford will always sell the new pants and dress that Non driving Americans want to wear. I have spent many many weeks in europe. 18 trips to Austria to stay with family, a home away from home if you will. My family are drivers and europe has always had the better cars to drive. It's just another short coming of living in the US. Ford wants to be the world manufacturer with fenced territory. Read my Ford story coming soon to you tube, I'm done with Fords better idea.

Charles J Ok, time for me to chime in. I have heard enough. I used to drive a VW Jettta sedan back in the day. I never knew how much fun and storage space I was missing until I purchased a Volvo V50 in 2005. Ok, wait, Volvo was still owned by Ford and I have FoMoCo stamped everywhere on my car to prove it. Anyway, my current wagon has 172K miles on it at 7yrs old. I am not ready to sell this car, but I would give it to my wife for the purchase of the Focus wagon. Let me tell you, it IS a fun car to drive. I am stationed in Germany and have driven the 2.0l wagon and the 1.6l turbo wagon. Guess which one is more fun to drive? Ford, are you really reading these posts or are you just directing our comments, complaints , and pleads to some random tech guy? Does Alan Mulally know what you are doing? Please, I am begging, give your customers what they ask for I want the Focus wagon in the 1.6l turbo flavor. Yes, you have this engine in the new Escape, but like others have mentioned, we want a lower center of gravity. I hate sitting up high, thus the reason why I don't want a SUV/Crossover. And please don't say that your 5-dr hatch is like a wagon when you know better, that the cubic ft of space is considerably more in a wagon compared to the hatch. I am jumping through hoops right now with NHTSA trying to do an actual export of this wagon. Only you, Ford, can make like much easier for me, and perhaps the rest of us who want to see this wagon on our own soil.

Paul M I have driven RWD cars most of my life and whether I was driving off-road or through a blizzard, I've never needed 4WD. It's all about knowing how to drive in your given conditions and having the proper tires installed, and given that the Escape will likely come with all-season passenger-car/light-truck tires, 4WD on the Escape is moot. People who want wagons have their reasons: better handling and gas mileage, low load-floors and roof-racks, family and large pet hauling, etc. So listen to your customers Ford, not your market survey data. We may be a smaller market segment, but if VW and Subaru can each sell over 20k wagons a year in the mid-$20k range, that proves there still is a market for small to mid-size wagons in the US. Remember, past performance doesn't guarantee future results.

TimS PLEASE bring the Euro Focus Wagon to the US market! My wife is going to need a family hauler that is fun to drive, and we both will never buy an SUV. Why sacrifice performance, fuel economy and fun for... what again? I love my BMW 328i Sport Wagon, and I cannot believe that American car makers have abandoned the wagon segment so completely. Make that Focus wagon a manual-shift turbo diesel and I'll put down the money today. Otherwise, we're looking at BMW, Audi & VW once again.

Darren That's great that you're launching the Escape - I just don't want one. Too big, heavy, tall and thirsty. I've owned two previous-generation Focus wagons and would love if you'd consider doing a limited release in North America. I think you'd be surprised at the number of wagons you'd be able to sell - and still make a decent profit.

richk Too add a different perspective, I have driven explorers for roughly 10 of the last 15 years and I am looking to replace my current explorer mainly because of gas prices. Also, to be honest, the explorer is more car than I need right now but I deffinitly want a vehicle than has wagon cargo space. I too would buy the focus wagon immediatly, but am probably going to splurge on a bmw 3 series wagon or tsx wagon. Despite the design which I love for both, I am disappointed with its fuel economy. The euro spec focus wagon is my dream car and will be more in line with my desired price range. Bottom line, my love affair with suvs has ended and the escape wont cut it for me.

Ben G Agreed 1000%. At what point did all the U.S. car makers suddenly decide that wagons were obsolete? It's ridiculous. Plenty of foreign car makers still sell plenty of them here (OK, mostly Subaru). With fuel prices going up and people still looking for cheaper vehicles, I have to believe the time is right for a reasonably-priced vehicle (read: not SUV/crossover/minivan) that has the utility families need. Only a wagon or MPV can provide that without breaking the bank.

dancer23 Oh, I so agree with all the previous comments about WAGONS! I would kill for a Focus wagon with the 1.6L ecoboost. I just don't understand why car manufacturers like Ford have been dropping wagons in the US, leaving us wagon people with almost no choices! I don't get the appeal of sedans (in Europe it is the opposite of here -- wagons are more popular). To me sedans are less attractive and a whole lot less functional than wagons.

Brandon D. My wife and I would buy the wagon in a heartbeat if it came to the US. We love the styling of it and the added cargo space compared to the hatch's rear. Man I would pay premium for that ST wagon. Looks like we'll have to look elsewhere...

Steven O I agree. What we need is wagons for wagon people for all the reasons stated above. I am waiting for a wagon to roll off the assembly line.

Paul M I agree with Brad. Wagon lovers want cargo space and sedan like handling characteristics, not raised ride heights and a tall roof line that makes it impossible to use the roof rack without a step stool. We also want good gas mileage, and despite the improved fuel economy of the new Escape, is is still far behind those of the 1.6L Ecoboost Focus Wagon sold in Europe. Look, we all know that SUVs and crossovers are very profitable vehicles for manufacturers, but if GM can sell a $70k CTS-V wagon, and BMW a $40k 3-series touring in the U.S., then I don't see why you can't offer the rest of us a Focus wagon in the low $20k's. Younger wagon buyers aren't cross shopping SUVs, and hatchbacks are a compromise in space that most of us aren't willing to sacrifice. Instead, we are looking at Acura TSX wagons, VW Jetta Sportwagons, and older, used wagons in our price range because that is what we want. Be proactive and be the first domestic manufacturer to release a new wagon in the U.S. You might be surprised just how many you sell.

Brad B Hey Ford ! Let's talk about wagons. First, wagon people aren't and won't ever be SUV drivers. Second, I can tell you from personal experience we don't make great mini-van customers either. We like a lowered loading floor, lowered entry/exit into the seating areas. We also have older in-laws who has mobility issues and the above works well when loading wheel chairs and the like. Now I've looked at the Transit Connect and the hi-roof line doesn't work well in alot of the parking decks we have to frequent. Which asks the question will we see a lo-roof model like they get in the UK? I really appreciate some face time with the Transit Connect brand manager to pass not to many ideas for the Transit Connect that'd make it more family/elder friendly for all.
