I'd love to see Ford push its One Ford campaign a bit further... Let us have the 1.6t in the Focus, 6-speed manuals in everything in every trim level, the wagon Focus and Fusion, 3-door Fiestas, the global Ranger (omfg want), and try to get some diesels here. I understand that certain markets simply don't have enough demand to support production for these things, and that US emissions standards are a diesel-killer, but it would be kind of cool if they manufactured all/most the cars such that they pass US import laws and crash testing, and were available through overseas shipping for a fee or price premium or something.

At this point though I'm pretty happy with what we're getting in the Mk3 Focus and Fiesta, so don't want to look the gift horse in the mouth

I am curious as to how the Mustang will be received in Europe when they get it!
