This car sucks. The original was only a hatch, then they made the sedan for the US and now drop the hatch!?

The interior might look nice now, but wait until you sit in a production sample and make a decision.

you're right, my bad just woke up lol and thought i remember seeing the newer f150s with more square fogs, they were more rectangle. **goes and gets a cup of coffee**

I right with ya on this one, I'll have to give it look at. But, the odds are it will grow on me. We all need to change with the times

Wow. Its not that bad, I would probably buy one, mainly because I don't have to look at the car while I'm driving it. The side shots look good, the wheels look good, I think it might be lower than the current focus, the back is ok, but the front is the ugliest thing I've ever seen, like a saturn, but much worse.
I like what they say they've done with the chassis, suspension and weight, better handling is always good. They also say they redid the intake and exhaust which were a nightmare on the 05+.
The interior is amazing looking. That alone is enough to make me want one, since thats all you really see while your driving. The doors look like they're off the Five-Hundred though.
Edit: Forgot to mention how stupid they are for still using drum brakes in the back. So thats 2 really, really bad things, and a bunch of good ones.

I dont see why Ford wants to drastically change something that isnt bad... if they wanna change it, make more performance! [end rant]
x2
As I was reading all of the new things going on, I was thinking about the motors. Big let down for me

After looking for the third time at the coupe, I might be in! I'll need a ST/SVT type verison for me. Need to beat up on the SIs.

If I want a saturn, I'll go buy a saturn. That's just FUGLY!


And that's what it should have been named...



The all new "Ford Fugly."



Ford. Bold bowel movements.

If i need a new car before this one is gone... i'll be moving on.. and I've never had anything but Ford vehicles.
