I was at the local Ford Dealer today and met with one of their sales specialist. His name is Mr. B. Mr. B told me that its no secrete, and said he would share the order guide with me when he got it for the 2013 Focus ST (NA South Florida market anyways).

Mr. B also said that cars that have never been released before get the ordering guide 2 months before they can place a order for the vehicle.

If things pan out with May being the month we can place deposits, then the ordering guide will be given to dealers March 1st (Or the Month of March). This is consistent with with Lisa Schoder told me in our phone interview. So, less than a month....

**I did say IF...IF things pan out from what I have heard from Mr. B and Lisa.

Further more, Mr. B said he would email and phone me to let me know when the ordering guide was in the system.

This thread will serve as the official 2013 Focus ST Ordering information. All information I learn, and you learn will go here to assist other people who come here to get information.

I will ask Mr. B when we speak again about X-Plan for the Focus ST. That should be information we can get when the ordering guide is out.

I have a feeling that the New York Auto Show will be the place we will learn ALL about the Focus ST, besides price. :D

FYI if you want a 2013 Ford Escape, a fully loaded 4x4 will cost you 33K MSRP :) Thanks Mr. B

The salesmen I spoke to at my local dealer also mentioned that he would call me when he gets the ordering guide. I would assume that all of the 2013's would come out in the same ordering guide? I'm not sure if they send out multiple guides throughout the year.

Yeah I will be calling him [my guy] the first week of March. :)

The order guide has $$ of invoice, and MSRP...Doubt he will send me invoice $$, but it would be nice :)

Soon - within a short period after this or that time or event.

LOL soon to Ford could be months..

Soon is to me, as soon as next week, or as soon as April. Although what we know about Ford Dealers and ordering guides is they get them 2 months prior to going on sale officially.

If the car goes on sale in May...meaning you can place orders only, then Next week we will see the Ford ST facebook page updated and the Ford.com site with a build a focus st page.

But of course its all speculation at this point.
