I sort of get why some people want the wagon in the US, especially having seen Wagonguy's red '00 wagon. But the new one....the back end is... Agh. I don't have any words to describe how sick to my stomach it makes me, haha. No offense to any Mk. III Eurowagonfolk.^^ this. That hideous beast was barely Mk1.5. Ford really captured the essence of what made the first Focus so striking in the late 1990s with the MkIII, though. Although I'm not a wagon kind of guy, I really wish we'd have gotten one here in the US.
Not just you. I got my 2012 late in the model year when the '13s were already arriving and I am so glad that I did. The combination of options in the '12 SE Sport was just about perfect. I don't understand why Ford got rid of it. There needs to be a sport type model for all the people who want an ST but cannot afford one. The Black Pack, while nice, isn't on target, IMO.Is it just me, or do others think the '12 SE Sport pack will become one of the more sought after secondary/used market versions of the III? The new Black Pack seems to hit the same points, but with extras people might not want (MFT, for example).
