Take these with a grain of salt, but they are supposedly reliable. My comments in red *Mustang's chassis is called D2C. You'll see alot of that chassis within a few years. It will have IRS on all future applications. The solid axle will be a Mustang only item. *The 05 Mustang GT will be putting down around 280hp to the rear wheels (rated at 305) That's about 320 at the crank *When the Lincoln LS is redone, it will be on the D2C. It will also be called the Continental. *The Crown Victoria, the Marquis, and the Town Car will all get yet another reskining & interior. Yes, there will be another Crown Victoria. *The so called "Premium Lincoln" will be based on an improved "Panther" chassis. Ford is certainally getting it's money's worth from that structure. No expected date yet. This will be the next chassis people bitch about being ancient now that the fox is dead *SVT which will have no vehicles for 2005 (a model year that's actually only a few months long... 2006 MY begins January 2005) will have a multitude of vehicles by 2007. Mustang, Futura, Lightning, an unnamed Ford that's not the Five Hundred (Thunderbird??), a Lincoln, a Mercury, and a crossover vehicle. *The Mark X was strictly a concept. If a Mark X does see production, it will have a different look. It's still likely to be based on the current T-bird, though. *The next Thunderbird is well on it's way in the development cycle. The only thing that I can get is that it's going to be a 4 seater and based on D2C. I have no idea if it's going to be a coupe, a convertible, or what size it will be. Interesting. I'm glad it's sharing the D2C *The Futura is to be a downsized dead ringer for the 427 concept. It's supposed to be quite a performer, and will be a Ford only car (no Mercury counterpart). Merc will get a crossover based on the car though. I call BS on it being a performer unless they are talking about the SVT version *Mercury will also get a rebodied Mustang with automatic transmission and the GT's V8 engine. No word if it's going to be called Cougar or Capri (which will soon be in production in Europe on a FWD chassis). Awesome *The next Lightning will outrun the Dodge Ram SRT-10!! Everyone already knew this *The Lincoln Aviator concept is for all intents & purposes a production preview. I hope they keep the hardwood floor *What's keeping Ford from importing a high performance Ford Falcon is that the Falcon isn't made in left hand drive (unlike Holden's current V series cars) and Ford's Australian plant has far less capacity than Holden's, who does extensive exporting to other countries unlike Ford Australia (Ford simply uses the Crown Victoria in the Middle East). Ford is considering building a Falcon-like vehicle here in the US on the D2C for Mercury, but it's not likely before 2008. Damn, that sucks, but at least it's an explanation that makes sense.
