The 2006 NASCAR Ford Fusion model

Yeah, this is the same vehicle as all the rest in NASCAR. But, this one has Ford Fusion graphics. I'm kind of surprised they are promoting the Fusion, instead of the Five Hundred, since the Five Hundred is supposed to be Ford's flagship sedan.

The 500 is too big. The fusion is just right....even though I am not a Nascar fan.

I have never even heard of that car. Looks much better than the 500 (I hate the 500). They'll probably ruin it with "command" seating, AKA making you feel like you're in an SUV in you sedan. I hate it in my Focus, I hate it in the 500, and I'll hate it in the Fusion.

Too bad Ford has so little respect for us that they don't even bother to offer their best cars in the US (Typhoon, Mondeo, MkII Focus)
