Wonder if Ford will start more/most models earlier in 2011cy? - - so the new modelyear is on sale for the peak(?) late-spring & summer months?
...seems to me that many models are starting later than 'usual' in 2010cy AND there have been a number of models whose Job 1 date have slipped a bit later than originally 'stated' - - the old-traditional Fall intro dates don't make much sense anymore to me - tho I could say the same for the difference between calendaryear and modelyear.

ps
ausrutherford, if we follow the pattern of past O.G. threads;
Will you be OK with your first post being used for the O.G.Index?
or would you rather re-title this one something like "Preliminary" when we actually start getting 2012my O.G.'s?

Im ok with it being the first post.


I think I know why the Edge starts so early though, its because of the 2.0EB. Instead on doing a job#2 for MY11, they probably decided it would be cheaper to just go ahead and make it be the MY12.

Re: OrderGuides: F-M-L 2012

^ not specifically about the ST
but saw a post elsewhere about 2012 Focus dates:
Per Friday's Fleet Distribution News Bulletin (FDNB) the 2012 Focus USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) will open on 11/08/2010 with scheduling starting on 12/09/2010.

The Job #1 producton date is now listed as 01/31/2011.

usually OrderGuides are released about the same time as the OrderBanks open.

Re: OrderGuides: F-M-L 2012

F O C U S !
(rather preliminary tho - no pix of wheels yet
but
the paint colors sound interesting - esp "Frosted Glass"
& THEY FINALLY DID 2-TONE SEATS MY WAY: Black inserts with lighter "Warm Steel" or "Gray Metal" surrounds )

Re: OrderGuides: F-M-L 2012

^ I saw a post speculating that it'd show up in a year or so
imho Ford is waiting to see if they need it -OR- can drop the manual alltogether (on non-sport/ST/RS trims)
&
I've GOTTA see this "Frosted Glass" paint (wingsnut??)
but it's only offered on 2 trims with just the stone interior... ...so I hope it's ugly
otherwise

&
11 (ELEVEN) wheel choices!!!!
