come on guys this is the car that is going to underpin all the RWD fords in 2010, & there is not one response to the news i have linked to you, get off your arses & have your say, if this is a ford forum why isn't it running like blue blood from your veins.

Re: new 2008 falcon revealed

I heard that Ford is switching our Fusion from FWD to AWD. I guess that's better. Pics of the next Ford Taurus kinda look like the Falcon. I would know if I could see a 3 quarter rear view, but they only show the front. Sweet looking though! Maybe the big secret is that it's going to be RWD...

Re: new 2008 falcon revealed

Actually, they could use the Falcon to replace the Crown Vic, Merc. Grand Marquis, and the Lincoln Town Car since those should all be RWD anyways. The Taurus/Sable should stay FWD cars - maybe a hybrid so that there's no overlap with the Fusion... The Mondeo should be the next Milan since the taillights are already similar. It would look like that was always the plan and would help seperate Fords from Mercurys.

Now these ones are the go fast FPV versions, would you like a dose of turbo inline6 with utes & classy sedans, plus a few v8's for good measure!

click on the thumbnails for a peak at the future!
