Ford Offering $3,000 Rebate on 2010 Focus

Ford FocusFord is on fire and wants to have a profitable first quarter this year. They're making it so buyers can now purchase a new 2010 Ford Focus for less than $13,300 until the end of March.

The climate in the automotive industry is that of hunger; Toyota's woes have turned into points of opportunity for other manufacturers. Add that to the draw of posting strong quarterly sales figures for shareholders, and it's easy to see why Ford is offering up to $3,000 off the 2010 Focus.

The company has also suggested that some other financing incentives, including 0 percent APR and $500 cash back, could extend until the unveiling of the 2012 next year. That model will be the first "global" model in Ford's lineup, meaning the Focus will be substantively similar throughout the world.

Waiting until near the March 31st deadline could also pay dividends for buyers as well. Dealers looking to maximize their sales figures at the end of the quarter are likely to strike a deal. Plunging gas prices have also weakened the market for smaller cars a bit, with Focus sales dropping with the price of fuel.
