Ford Receives More than 1,000 Reservations for New Fiesta in Less Than a Week

More than 1,000 people have placed a reservation for Ford's hotly anticipated Fiesta since the company first launched a dedicated microsite and priced the subcompact model six days ago, on Thursday, December 3.

Not to lessen Ford's bragging rights, but we must note that those that who chose (or will choose) to reserve a Fiesta through this process have no obligation to purchase or put any money down for the car.

But if they go through with the purchase, Ford said that they will receive prioritized order handling with automatic build updates, their personal Fiesta Reservations consultant, and most importantly, a SYNC system with navigation and Premium Sound package, worth $595 free of charge.
The Detroit automaker said that up until now, Fiesta reservations have come from 47 different states, with customers from California, Florida, Texas, New York and Illinois leading the way in the number of reservations.
The U.S-spec Ford Fiesta will be built in Mexico and will be offered as a five-door hatchback and a four-door saloon, both powered by a 119-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. First deliveries are expected next summer with prices starting from $13,995.
