Default OT: FO MO CO Make up your mind

Now no comments on how you would never buy a ford and all that crap.

I just read that Ford has gotten rid of the FOCUS and replaced it with the moldy oldy ESCORT. My brother used to have an escort, and we called it the pimpscort.

And they are replacing the Five Hundred with the Taurus, anfthe Freestyle, with the Taurus X. Wow tey need to make up their minds!

I thought they already replaced it with the Fusion like Chevy did with the Cavalier and Cobalt?

No the fusion is simply a midrange competitor to the accord, they didnt really have a car to compete with it in the lineup, unless you count the old Mondeo from the late 90's.

I'll always be amazed by ford's marketing strategy. They said they changed the Five Hundred to the Taurus because of the "name prestige" or some bull like that. Everyone knows the Taurus is a POS, why bother changing the name back? And the focus at least was somewhat new in thinking. Escort is just a stupid marketing game.

Please, ford. Stop this. AND WIPE OUT THE AMERICAN LINE OF CARS AND BRING US THE EUROPEAN MONDEO AND FOCUS, PLEASE!!!!!!!

I feel real stupid, because I didn't look at the date Car & Driver had posted the ESCORT update. (April 1st 2007)

It was a friggin prank! i'm p***ed !

So the Focus will remain the Focus.

All is good in the atomotive world again!

Thats why I drive a Toyota. It may be an import but the Tundra is a solid vehicle that holds its value well and will run over the F-150.

Not!

The Chevy Silveradoes will crush them all in the dust.
