Ford Focus Runs The Gamut From Super Cheap To Relatively Costly

Three Ford vehicles, including the Ford Focus compact, have made an Autoweek list of the ten widest-price-spread vehicles available today.

According to that website, the disparity between the cheapest and costliest Ford Focus models is 2.13 times. That is to say, the most expensive variant – the Ford Focus RS ($36,775) – is more than two times the price of the least expensive: the Ford Focus S sedan ($17,225). Both prices include the destination fee, but nothing in the way of optional extras.

Surprisingly, the Ford Focus was only number eight on the list. Other Ford vehicles to make the top ten widest-price-disparity list include the F-150 full-size pickup and Mustang pony car. The F-150 runs from $26,540 for a base XL model, to $58,885 for an F-150 Limited, earning it the seventh spot on the list with a 2.22-times spread. The Mustang can be had for as little as $24,645 for a base V6 model, or as much as $63,095 for the Shelby GT350R. That’s a 2.56-times disparity – enough to place the Ford Mustang second on the list, just behind the Porsche Cayenne SUV.

Of course, the top-trim Porsche Cayenne Turbo S likely offers far more options than the aforementioned Shelby; it might be interesting to see how the list changes when the top-trim car compared is fully-loaded.
