Ford's Mercury brand has no small 4wd/SUV in it's range so how about exporting the "raptor" to the U.S and badge it a Mercury?
That sounds like a good idea. Ive heard rumours that Holden might export thier 4wd to us and rebadge it under the cadilac name. Not sure though how a falcon would so as a murcury/lincoln, it would depend on how they advertise it. A few years ago they tired to sell the Australian Capri convertible as amurcury or loncoln but they didnt do well.
