Ford Focus, Acura RSX, Sedan

I was at my local Ford dealer last week and the sales manager told me that they would most likely be selling the Focus diesel in late 2006. He said that Ford is waiting for ULSD and wants to be able to sell it in all 50 states. He said the specs, based on the Euro Focus diesel, shows it getting 45 to 50 MPG. I would give almost anything for a car that got 50 MPG right about now.

pay $22,500 for a Hybrid Focus, $19,500 for a diesel Focus and $3000 under sticker for a Focus PZEV.

they get a coupe-cabriolet (at bottom of the article) later on. Why can't we get it? Along with the new Focus!

I know that the 05 4 door sedan sport model has them. Any other 05s? Is this tied to a cold weather package?

I'll take a diesel wagon please. ATX also, getting lazy and traffic jams are hard on clutches & legs. Also Neds experience reminder me of my first car 59 Karman Ghia, ran into dad's in the drive winter boots covered all three pedals. The Old marine was NOT happy! Guess I'm going to have to bone up on the Focus the 2.3 gone for 2005 and the 2.0 is back but not the old Zetec 2.0 I hope? Duratec 20?

Now that looks totally sweet! Maybe they can send that our way in a few years. You know, like every other model, we get it second. Looks like it is ready to run a FIA WRC tarmac event. I'll buy that for a dollar!

I see where the Mazda 3 is the forerunner to the next generation Focus. When will the new Focus be here? 06? Thanks.

"When will the new Focus be here? 06?"
Maybe around '08, when the facelift Focus II or the Focus III comes out.
Anyway, Volvo's 5-cyl turbo engine will be available on the Focus II.
Also, I hope the DSG transmission similar to Audi TT's will be available w/ various engine choices.
