Ford Only Has About 12,000 Focus Sedans Left In Its U.S. Inventory

We’re getting closer with each day to the moment Ford won’t have any sedans left for sale in the United States.

Ford’s shocking announcement made in April this year said that models such as the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, and Taurus would be phased out over the next few years. As it turns out, the end might be very near for some of these models. Take the Focus Sedan, for example. According to Marc LaNeve, Ford Vice President for U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service, there are only about 12,000 Focus sedans left in inventory.

Picked up by Automotive News reporter Michael Martinez and then by Jalopnik, the executive’s remarks prove that time is running out for customers who want to grab one of the last remaining Focus sedans in the United States.

12,000 units is a very small quantity given that Honda alone sold 377,286 Civic sedans, coupes, and hatchbacks in the U.S. in 2017. Basically, it’s slightly more than a month’s inventory given that Ford sold 158,385 Focus models last year (hatchbacks and sedans combined).

On Ford’s U.S. consumer website, the entry-level 2018 Focus Sedan S is listed with a starting price of $17,950 plus the $875 destination charge. However, Ford is handing out incentives of $3,250 for each car, dropping the estimated net price to $15,575.

That’s a pretty good deal for a compact sedan that features a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder gasoline engine, making 160 hp and 146 lb-ft (198 Nm) of torque.

Standard features include a five-speed manual gearbox, independent rear suspension, Torque Vectoring Control, Hill Start Assist, rearview camera, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Remote Keyless Entry, and more.

    Good job, Ford…Way to not give the new model a chance. Not even a revised electric or hybrid version? Wow.

    • Jorge Salazar

      agreed I was thinking of a focus or fusion titanium…cheap luxury

  • Mike anonymous

    I feel like the prices are going to start going up on this vehicle, the more scarce Ford Sedans become.

      You can’t be serious. At the rate the Focus is currently selling, these will be gone within 3-5 months.

      • Mike anonymous

        Yes, but what if ford did these other things as well. Maybe it would only take 3-4 months instead lol.

        On a serious note, I could see why they wouldn’t, although I wouldn’t see why not. Just an idea.

      A bland compact sedan becoming a collectible… rofl.

      • Mike anonymous

        Just add stickers to it for HorsePower and they’ll likely sell more (…jk obviously), or more seriously; simply slap a ‘Final Edition’ decal on it. It may not make much of a difference, but it could help them to get these vehicle out of the door just ever so slightly quicker.

    • Liam Paul

      lol I am going say no

  • kachuks

    Any hatchbacks? That’s the one I’d want.

  • Jørn-tommy Skjellnes

    Think if the ford F-series became a own brand like RAM, the ford would have sold not so maney cars in the US.

  • Mr. EP9

    Despite all the criticism over Ford abandoning sedans that Focus is bland and ugly. No one is going to miss that.

    • Jorge Salazar

      lets replace these with kias, hundays, mitsus, civic, corolas,…..whole lot better the the ford/gm vehicles.
      this is where they send them to be built in mexico and bring back high profit suv production to usa

  • Richard Alexander

    So there is no market for $20k gas powered sedans but endless demand for $60k electric novelty cars. Makes sense. BTW FANG is over, so there’s that….
