2012 Ford Focus Pricing Leaked
Although pricing hasn't been officially announced yet, Ford has listed the starting prices for all trim levels of the 2012 Focus on the company website.
According to the site, the 2012 Ford Focus S sedan will start at $16,270 (not including destination charge or tax and licensing fees) and come with a $500 rebate for those placing their order by February 2011.
Standard features include: four-speaker stereo CD player, integrated blind-spot mirrors, AC, five-speed manual transmission, 15-inch steel wheels, power front windows and front disc/rear drum brakes with ABS.
The other trim levels are priced out at: SE ($17,270), SEL ($20,270) and the top trim Titanium Sedan, $22,270.
The Focus five-door starts at the SE trim level and costs more ($18,065). Most features are comparable to the SE sedan, except rear spoiler, rear windshield wiper, removable cargo package tray and 60/40 split rear seats.
The other trim levels are the SEL five-door ($21,065) and the Titanium five-door ($22,765).
The Ford Focus costs slightly more than two of its competitors, the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, but it's comparable to the Chevrolet Cruze.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
