U.K.:Ford Focus Gets Green Light
The blue oval is going green - Ford is branching out with the introduction of its first-ever production line-built bi-fuel passenger car. But the new Focus, which gets a natty new badge, is a late-bloomer, as Vauxhall has been selling LPG Astras since 1998.
Available in 1.8-litre five-door or estate guise with LX, Zetec and Ghia trim, the new models have had £1,990 cut off their normal price, meaning they currently cost the same as petrol versions. Ford has also unveiled a TDCi Sport Focus. At £14,995, the limited-edition 115bhp oil-burner comes with 17-inch alloys, part-leather seating and traction control.
And Ford hopes first-time buyers of the car will make use of its free advanced driving course and insurance deal, which has been introduced in a bid to cut the numbers of accidents novices have. The offer is also open to buyers of the Ka Style and Coll-ection, and Fiesta LX, Zetec, Flame and Black models.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
