I would love to have that 197hp diesel model! That would be entertaining.

and by the way, i see what they are going for... see.

I love the iosis concept, and applying a lot of the styling cues to the focus would be great. i have no problem with everything on the new rendering right till it gets to the front end. redo the stupid front end!!! the rest of the car looks great from what i can tell but don't screw up the front end!!!!!!!! agh!!!!

I kind of like how the Audi rendition looks on the front, I just wish that Ford would be a little more creative and please.....do away with the three bar theme. It sucks.
