Update: 2011 Ford Focus Review (with official pricing).
Following our scoop on Wednesday that revealed the first pricing details of the new Ford Ranger, we can again reveal similar details about the all-new Ford Focus, which goes on sale in Australia on August 1.
In another similar competition, Ford Australia is giving away a Ford Focus Titanium TDCi – the top of the range model in the new Focus line-up.
According to the competition’s terms and conditions, the Focus Titanium TDCi will be priced from “approximately $33,000” on the road (which includes GST, 12 months registration in the winner’s state or territory of residence, dealer delivery charges, 12 months compulsory third party insurance and stamp duty).
The current Focus TDCi hatch has a manufacturer’s list price of $27,790 with the six-speed manual transmission and $29,790 with the six-speed sequential gearbox. With on-road costs factored in, it seems there will be no significant price increase from the outgoing model to the new Focus.
CarAdvice understands the new Ford Focus Titanium TDCi will be powered by a 2.0-litre Duratorq diesel engine that produces 120kW of power and 340Nm of torque (up from 100kW and 320Nm).
In the UK, this engine’s combined cycle fuel consumption is rated at 5.3 litres/100km, although Ford Australia is yet to officially confirm performance details for our Focus.
The specifications of the new Titanium TDCi are also still a bit of a mystery, although it’s a safe bet that the new vehicle will be at least as well equipped as the model it replaces.
The current TDCi hatch comes standard with six airbags, eight-speaker CD player, Bluetooth phone connectivity with Voice Control, USB input for iPod/MP3 integration and 16-inch alloy wheels.
The Titanium TDCi will be fitted with Electronic Power Assisted Steering (similar to the system used in the new Territory), and is likely to feature keyless start, cruise control with speed limiter, dual-zone climate control, nine-speaker Sony DAB audio system, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers and emergency flashing brake lights.
Features like Active Park Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control are expected to be optional on the Titanium TDCi variant.
