World debuts abound for N.Y.
April 14, 2003
While Ford will unveil two special-edition 2004 Mustangs, most of the attention will be on Ford Motor COO Nick Scheele. He is expected to give details about Ford Division's plans for new products. Ford will celebrate the Mustang's 40th anniversary. A limited-edition crimson 40th anniversary 2004 Mustang will debut. The package includes stripes, along with special badging and wheels.
A limited-edition 2004 SVT Mustang Cobra Mystichrome also will debut. The car's color-shifting paint changes from green to blue to purple to black as the angle of view changes.
The spotlight will be on Chris Theodore, Ford Motor Co.'s vice president of advanced product creation. He is expected to provide a vision for new products.
Until new vehicles arrive, Lincoln wants to create buzz with performance enhancements on one or two models. A high-performance Navigator concept will be unveiled, equipped with a supercharged 385-hp, 5.4-liter V-8. This is the same engine in Ford's SVT F-150 Lightning pickup, but the Lincoln version gains 5 hp.
Mercury's formula for this decade is simple: Select several Ford Motor Co. vehicles, restyle the exterior and add near-luxury interior touches. Mercury will take the wraps off its sport wagon based on the Ford Escape. It will debut next year as a 2005 model.

My next Ford.....
