Whats not wrong? The Fusion, Freestyle, Edge and Focus are good but not spectacular and still not best in class. My largest pet peeve by far is that the Mustang is a pile yet they spend soooo much money on it, neglecting every other project.

GM is killing them on all levels. They can both have a 260hp FWD compact AND a 400hp RWD terror.

They have more money, for now.

I would love to see nothing more than the Mustang canned, and see all the broskis' crying into their brewskis'.
I do love the old Mustangs up to the last generation but the lack of performance in this generation and the bastardization of the Cobra should seal its fate.

It all goes back to they have the Ford GT and so far GM can't mess with it. It only cost 125,000 or something like that. They need something everyone can get their hands on like a factory boosted focus for the US (but looks like we'll have to wait till 2010 and hope they don't change the body styling to match with the american focus) or a mustang that looked better and had more kahoness. just my 0.02

the ford gt was more in the 200k range, and the new vette ZR-1 pretty much murders any car on the road today.

this is pretty much they way ford has always been. but things are looking up right now with confirmed ecoboost engines across fords lineup, and with only a $700 price tag for a twin turbo on a v6 its one hell of a deal (only one turbo for I4) so things are moving in the right direction at least
