Must admit I've never really been into the Rangies. The whole 4wd thing just doesn't do much for me really.. Should be interesting to see how it sells though..

Oh it will sell real good. This car my friend is the sole reason Ford now own Landrover. This will be a huge winner for Ford. In the process they nearly got BMW.
Do you reckon they'll have a crack at BMW in the future? Should be interesting to see how that all pans out in the long run!

Yeah thats where you and I differ abit. I am a true car person, actually anything with an engine from bikes to trucks and then through to cars with Ford as my main interest..
Must admit bikes do absolutlely nothing for me.. Never been keen on 'em at all.
HSE2 said:
With out a need for 4WD you aren't likely to be that interested in them.
I dunno about that though.. We got some pretty rugged bush up these parts and some of the 4wd/fishing weekends we've had up the snowies are some of the best of my life for sure.. Even more fun tryng to get a Falcon over the same terrrain!!

really would have love JAc to stay there a bit longer as I feel they may have. The rumour was the the landrover engine contract was going to be kept alive to keep the foot in the door so to speak. This doesn't look like happening now. On the other side the Quadt family have put the foot down so to speak.
Yeah me too.. I can't see Ford making a crack at BMW for at least 5 years. Not until they get themselves sorted out at home first anyway..

Really would like to understand what your point was!
Something about going fishing up the beaten tracks and taking the 4 wheelers along with us. I think that relates to the need for them or something! Can't remember to be honest mate. Was crashing into walls at this stage on Friday night!!

Ok So you aren't into 4wds so to speak but some of the best times you have had wouldn't have been possible without them.

Yes I think I can see what you are saying. A means to an end doesn't mean you have to like or share an interest in the means.

I would agree with that I see your point
That's the one.. I think? :eek:o1:
I do like 'em a bit, but not with the same gusto I like road cars. Some amazing engineering on some of the models..

well here is a shot of th interior. Now this got a number of Ford execs very excited.
That is nice.. Love the colours in it.. Fantastic job there. Is this all BMW's handy work or did J Mays have a hand in it too?

Supposedly that is the worst of the interior trims on offer????!?!??!?. Bur Walnut and aluminium are the others along with a list of leather as long as your arm
That's the worst?? Really?? Damn the top notch ones must be nice!!

One thing is for sure Ford will have to move some if they want to maintain anysort of lead on the likes of Porsche, who now have a SUV, and BMW with the X range of SUVs
Without a doubt.. Interesting article in the lastest wheels about the "premium" brands becoming the norm now. Both Ford and GM will have to lift their game to be competitive..

GM desperately wants another premium brand. If only Ford would have got BMW!
They'd busted arse broke by now for sure! But oh what a vehicle lineup it would be..

Yeah true but at least I don't think GM can get em either! If frod can't have BMW then I don't want anyone to get em
Same here!.. What chances you reckon VW have of giving them a shot?
