Did they do ANYTHING to the interior? It's showing its age.

I don't particularly care for the large octagonal grille either.

Hang on, when did Ford say they are getting rid of the Fusion? Does that mean the Mondeo is gone too??

Ford announced a week or so ago that the 2020 Fusion is dead and it's been reported that Mondeo production is also not long for this world. I'm really surprised they didn't just build the FusDeo in China and ship them around the world.

Love it. I like how committed Ford is to performance models, and their lineup looks nice. I still don't think I'd buy any of them...

Especially with this joke of an interior they're still pushing:


Their effort to fix their capacitive button fiasco was the LAZIEST fix I've ever seen. What a hideous and slapstick mess...

Oh my, hugely disappointing news So looking at the Australian market : no next Mondeo, Falcon is dead, Fiesta probably won't be sold here anymore, Focus may not be sold here anymore...WTF? So we will have the Mustang, Edge, EcoSport, Ranger and pointless Everest here only??

What the heck is Ford thinking? The Mondeo/Fusion is a great car, even if it doesn't sell as much as SUVs and Crossovers nowadays. Are they that short sighted? Or did they not learn from the past, that trends change all the time.

was wondering why the new grille shape/sizing etc. looked familiar.





especially when you ignore the lower weird portion of the Terrain's headlights

Oh please. First of all calm down, I was pointing out similarities (like both having a large octagonal grille with a lot of flat empty space below the headlights, which isn't that common of a combo). Secondly, the front clip is entirely new...not a microscopic update. If you don't think so, get your eyes checked. AND please show me where I said the Edge in its entirety was in no way similar. Don't put words in my mouth.

Why do you have to be so aggressive and insist on talking to people the way you do? The Edge isn't your mother. People can have opinions that are different than yours without your misdirected anger (again, should probably be directed to your mother where it belongs).
