    Kind of a shame, since the inline 6 is the best thing Ford does, but emissions killed it off.

    IMHO, it's a good move on their part, because when they let their domestic team design stuff, it usually ends up looking like ass.

    its likely the American devision will ruin it before it makes it to America.

    Aka the Holden Commodore into the Pontiac G8

    that is very true.

    I wish they would sell the Chevrolet badged model in the USA. So you had the choice, as it looks identical to the Holden variant.

    What Chevy needs to do is dump the bowtie in the front of the car. IMHO, it just symbolizes a low class bumpkin mobile.

    If Ford AU didn't get thrown this bone it would probably go under. They desperately need global export opportunities, hopefully that will include selling the Falcon as it is here.
