“Sales momentum for the Focus RS has been incredible in the U.S. for the first six months,” Jessica Bishop, Focus marketing manager, Ford North America, said. “Uniquely for a performance vehicle, we haven’t seen any sales decline during the winter months, but rather customer interest has picked up thanks to AWD availability.”
It’s not really a surprise that this impressive machine is selling so well, but what might be surprise is how high customers are willing to go on a compact car’s price. As we mentioned, highly option models are quite popular, with a whopping 62 percent customers opting for the $2,785 RS2 package, which includes leather-trimmed Recaro seats with an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated exterior mirrors, a heated steering wheel, voice-activated navigation and more.
In all, the average Focus RS is selling for $42,351, which is $6,000 above the base price, showing customers not only love Ford’s hottest hatch, but they want all the toys.
