Default 2013 Ford Focus ST

Been looking at this now and again online. The thing looks great and sounds like the performance might be respectable as well. Thinking it wouldn't be a bad daily driver. I have been trying to find the price, and all I found so far was $27k...which is absolutely ridiculous. I could get a new Subaru WRX for that.

Anyone know what the actual pricing might be like?

the 2012 is 16.5 - 22K so it should be around that price?

Those are the regular base Focus prices. The ST will be considerably more.

Pricing for the Focus ST has not been announced, but expect it to be in the neighborhood of $26,000 when it goes on sale next spring.

27k would be a tad high unless you're talking about adding a leather package of some kind, GPS, etc, etc, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if the 27k is for the loaded version. May also be taking into account 2dr vs 4 dr as well.

It's a nice little car for sure but at that price I'd take a GTI every single time...

Ford waited too long to bring the ST over here - now it's ugly on the inside and expensive.

Love the Recaro seats, but I'd get a GTI or WRX instead for that money.

Now if it was an RS, different story.

Yeah, the RS is a monster and they really should have brought that here with the AWD.

Drove an '12 Focus today. Nice car overall. Very solid feeling and quiet. But also felt very cramped inside, has poor visibility looking back out the windows and cruise control is not standard.
