In an effort to get some replies here versus nothing from twitter, may I ask what trim level you have? Thanks.

Where or how can we verify this? I looked on the UK site and didn't see Ghia, and I think mine would be an optioned "Zetec" trim level.

I believe the Ghia trim is offered in Germany. It may also be in other places that I don't know about. Haven't had a chance to determine if Ghia there is the same as Titanium or something else, but it'd be interesting to know if other European countries have different trim designations as well. Hmm, when I get some time I'll try to look at it.

I think the UK gets the Ghia trim name level. Germany does not.???

Just marketing nonsense anyhow.

They also have the "Ghia" trim in China. I double-dog-dare Ford's marketing people to offer a Fiesta "Ghia" in America, with the little red Ghia badge and everything.:D

Last time that badge appeared was on the mid 70's Ford USA Granada!!!!!!!!...good grief that was one hella of a dog. I know cuz I used to drive one. AWFUL!!!!!

No connection with the FoE Granada which while wasn't spectacular for a ordinary sedan at the time was really very good..

The 70's- early 80s....were the darkest days at Ford Dearborn.

In Europe, Ghia meant the best design and luxury Ford had to offer. In America, Ghia meant a pretentious little car with too much gingerbread.

If they're really, really serious about this "One Ford" thing, they could make the effort to re-introduce the world to the good definition of Ghia, a car with the best of everything. But I don't expect that much of them.

I am resigned to the fact that the coming generation of Euro-based American Fords will be compromised in some regard. But I think if they stick to the Euro strategy instead of running away from it like they've done every time before they'll eventually get it right. Plus a compromised Euro-Ford is still more appealing to me than most of what the competition has to offer.

I'm starting to think that the "One Ford" mantra they keep spouting is nothing more than corporate speak marketing phooey.

While I think the new Taurus is a better car in some ways then the last one (500, Taurus) It is also heavier, thirstier, and more expensive, it is also much UGLIER than the original 500.

The new Mondeo looks much nicer.

As far as I understand, all Fiesta's brought to America are Titanium trim level.
UK discontinued Ghia trim except for Mondeo and Galaxy MPV, but on mainland EU Ghia is still alive, but each countries trim level and included features vary. But Ghia and Titanium features are very similar, with seat textures and interior trim materials being the usual differences. As Powershift posted Ghia trim is more luxury/refined, and Titanium sporty/luxury.

All Fiesta Movement cars are Titanium models. The only difference is heated seats, leather, cloth, colors, and wheel options. Cars in the northern areas were equipped with heated seats, while the southern cars have cloth. There seems to be more 17" wheel equipped cars in the south, which is good since northern roads kill big wheels. Majority of cars are Magenta, then Green, Red, Silver, and Black. Some place I have the exact break down of the percentages of the colors.

The Ghia badge also was on the Pantera, and Mustang II. I do believe some early fox Mustangs were Ghia models as well. Both of my Foci have carried the Ghia crest on the front fenders and on the center console. My Fiesta will most likely also carry the crest someplace on the car. Pictures show the crest on the Fiesta's C-pillar on the Ghia models.
