We sure do love leaked information. If you need to keep a secret, don’t tell the people who work in the automotive industry. The recently unveiled 2012 Focus won’t be going on sale until late 2011, but we already have a rough idea of its pricing information.
The base S sedan will cost around $16,270, while the SE trim level will raise that price to $17,270. The SEL model, which adds Sync, ambient lighting and 16-inch alloy wheels will cost $20,270. The high-roller Titanium Focus will cost $22,270. That might seem a bit high for a Focus, but don’t forget that this model comes with MyFord Touch, a Sony audio system, sport seats and 17-inch sport alloy wheels.
The hatchback versions will cost a tad more than the sedans. The SE, SEL and Titanium models will run $18,065, $21,065 and $22,765. If you want your Focus loaded to the hill, then you need the Titanium Premium Package that adds rain-sensing wipers, leather seats, reverse sensing system and more. All that can be yours for just $1,295.
While this information isn’t official, if you look hard enough on the Ford website, you will find it. It’s clear that the price of a Focus has gone up, but so has the quality and the design. If money is tight, order before February 28, 2011 and you can save $500.
