How long is a piece of string. Volumes, Taxes and the fact we are willing to pay such prices.

SA factory price + dealer markup + tax + tax + tax = your price

Looks like the Limited is a very nice spec. Something between a Wildtrak and XLT.
I have a XLT Auto and would have loved the climate control and park distance control.

Does anyone know why our spec here is so different? The XLT in Aus has the Climate Control and PDC, and they get a Wildtrack in 4x4.

WTF Ford SA? Why the different spec?

So they can sell more cars. Its called marketing.

While they cant keep up with demand and have a waiting list for lower spec cars they will continue doing so. Once demand slacks off they will do a "face lift" and then offer us for free, all the stuff we should have got in the first place.
