mmmoose If by "bold moves" they mean "oh my god I can't believe they just got rid one of the best and unique style line of cars in the American market", then yes... mission accomplished. Sigh... this makes me depressed. But at the same time I'm not too distressed. The coupe model has the potential to look great, but at the same time it's no different than a mini-Fusion. It's going to look like any other car on the road. Say goodbye to originality.

When the time comes that I do need to get a new car (which hopefully won't be for a very long time), I'm probably going to look into the Toyota Yaris Liftback. I think it's right there beside the ZX3 with cool hatchback design, and you don't see too many of them on the roads either. Although... I'm still hoping that by then Ford will bring in the rumored new Focus platform (in 2010?) to America. I wouldn't hold my breath though.

Sid03SVT I don't know what Ford is thinking, this "Bold Moves" program they've initiated has brought on uglier, less fuel efficient, and somehow slower cars...in the words of 'The Vapors' "I think im turning Japanese, I think im turning Japanese, I really think so"

faulkton it sort of looks like an over-inflated jetta

Caffn8d Can it sit any higher? I realize it's nothing that the aftermarket couldn't fix, but....jeeez. I don't see anything sleek about it. The new character line just makes the doors look that much bigger than they already do. Looks like a boring Toyota Corolla on steroids.

I bought my ZX3 because I wanted the hauling versatility in a small and fun commuter package without having to buy an SUV. Looks like Ford has now nixed that idea.

Base models will most likely continue with the 130-horsepower 2.0-liter Duratec while upgraded models will get the 2.3-liter four-cylinder with 151 hp.
does that mean a 2.3 in more than just the ST?

probably not ;(

oh wait, they killed the hatch, so i dont really care. :( :(

Duffman355 THe front end is scaring the shit out of me. I love my sap fofo. The coupe could be cool though. Maybe swap out the bars for some mesh.

secondechomatt I'm a hatch 4 life kinda guy, but I think the coupe has potential. Not for utility, but for a bit of style.

The grille is a 2 bar, not 3, so it will be fusion-esque, think along the lines of BMW family lineage, or benz. You know its one as soon as you see it, without even knowing exactly what it is.

How do I know? Saw one today! ;)
