I jus't can't believe they haven't been producing any exciting mainstream over the last decade.
The focus is actually nice, but other than that, the contour is bland, mustang is a niche vehicle and basically Ford is all about trucks. They messed up the Taurus SHO by making it all curvy and only automatic-transmission.
Lincoln has some nice stuff.. but it's for people over 35ish i think.
Mercury is for old timers... mostly
Then ford wants to introduce the GT 40 for about $80,000, to introduce some excitement to its dealerships at an affordble price (what the Viper did for Chrysler), but now its gonna be well over $100,000. What are they thinking?
I know ford owns Mazda, Jaguar, Aston Martin and Mazda and others which all are doing well.. I just am unhappy that Ford's image as a individual car manufacturing is not looking so good.. to me anywayz.
Hope they seriously pick things up!
Let's hope the SVT models do just that !
GT, not GT40. Price around $150K. It's supposed to compete with the 360 and GT2/3. Limited production. Almost a supercar/exotic, if you can call it that. It has always been aimed at that niche.
Nothing exciting? F150 Lightning? (Gen1 or 2) 390hp supercharged Mustang Cobra? Hell the 93 Mustang Cobra? Cobra R? It's hard to make an exciting vehicle that's practical and will sell well.
