[Top Gear] New Ford Fusion/Ford Mondeo
Check out the sauce here.
If they made one in RWD I'd be all over it. My only gripe with a 5MT Fusion is the FWD-ness. A friend of mine has a 2007 Fusion. I've ridden in it. His only has the four, but my god does it move out. Wonderful little car, and it's never done him wrong. Comfy, too.

Now if only Ford could find the balls to bring up the Falcon. But they won't, they're too deathly afraid of hurting Mustang sales. Even though the Fusion and Taurus basically compete

Looks pretty nice. I am thinking about a new one at the moment as well and I haven't even considered a Ford in my last couple of purchases.
They really made a turnaround though and this one is definitely worth a second look. Ford has come a long way, and if you look at their sales numbers (where they had to surrender to Nissan, wow) you can only hope that the car will be as good as it looks.

Yeah, fusions are nice. I don't like the interior though. I think it feels kinda cheap. My only complaint out of the car, and I think they changed it up a bit on this model.

Do I see an Aston Martin hiding in a new Ford?
Hmm. Will have to think this one over.
