Special Editions: MK-I (2000 to 2004)
Owners of vehicles want to stand out. That's why Ford introduced a series of special edition Focii to the Canadian public in its first generation of production.
The Street Edition was put into production for a limited time during the 2001 model year. Stemming from the SE Sport platform, you could obtain a sedan or wagon in three colours: Infra-Red, Fun-in-the-Sun Yellow, and Malibu Blue (the latter two being the first to offered on a sedan or wagon).
The Street Edition uses the same springs, dampers and anti-roll bars found in the European Zetec Focus.
Visual distinctions included lower black fascias, black bodyside moldings, a 6-disc, in-dash CD changer, sport bucket seats, 16-inch, six-spoke machined aluminum wheels, and a chrome exhaust tip.
In response to a demand for a Street Edition ZX3, Ford released the S2 in 2001. The S2 (also known as "Street Edition/2") featured a unique front spoiler, rocker panels and rear spoiler. Colour choices were CD Silver, Sangria Red and Liquid Grey (an S2-exclusive that later found its way into the 2002 and later model years).
