confused Australian cars make me jealous...

i like the look of the Fords in Australia, why cant Ford do stuff like them here in the states? all we have are full-size trucks, larger sedans and the little econoboxes. Ford could save more money by making same vehicles that are popular in other countries here too. sorry for ranting, but to me i wish i had a lil ute or whatever they are called that are half car half truck.

Yes I'm sure the Falcon ute from Aussie would be popular in the states. Now that the price of fuel has an impact on purchasers choice, it makes having a ute with fuel economy, performance, comfort and handling of a car seem like a good idea.

Re: Australian cars make me jealous...

well... the U.S. Fords that are no longer around are down in Australia... like the Falcon and galaxy or whatever they have that was a U.S. named car. frustrates me that even in Europe, the have a better looking Focus also.
