Roger Duchou 02/18/2011
No thanks, made in Mexico.
Zachary Davis 02/18/2011
I like the new Focus, it is a generous addition to the ford fleet. It's much better looking than previous years of the focus. I do hope they offer an All-Wheel Drive Model, or even a Turbo-Diesel model of the Focus.
Mark Hanes 02/18/2011
Been a long time since I've been this excited selling Fords in my 28th year of selling cars. Thanks Ford. This is going to be a wicked awsome ride!
Gerardo Romero 02/18/2011
Bring the RS to USA it would be good competition to the GTI and the Mazdaspeed !!
Bob Long 02/18/2011
It's a nice car with too many doors.
Bob Long 02/18/2011
I have a question for the man..why no two door? Every car I have owned since my ver first car (78 Pinto) has been an American car. I don't want to go import. However. It seems that my beloved American car companies have given up on folks like me. I love small cars. I love two doors. I would really consider a Focus or even Fiesta if you would give us a two door. The Mustang is a great car but the insurance is just way too much. Your killing the Ranger in America so that is out as an option. Ford, Dodge, and Chevy have all tossed folks like me under the bus. Are your going to make me bite the bullet go Japanese?
Don Bond 02/18/2011
Subaru is a good car... and this is also a good looking Car...
Adam M Hamby 02/18/2011
There will be a Focus ST...In the current bodystyle with a 2.0L DOHC ECOBOOST and 250bhp. I'm getting one!!!
Jake Reihl 02/18/2011
All I want to know is if there will be a focus rs offered in the us.
Adam M Hamby 02/18/2011
I think this cars pretty ugly honestly...The current Focus is a lot more attractive styling wise. This kinda looks like something that would wear Subaru badges.Yuck...Lose the HUGE UGLY PLASTIC LOWER GRILLE FORD!!!
