    The entire world gets the new Mondeo. We get the Fusion and "new" Taurus instead.

    Yes, it's FWD. The top Mondeo features a 220hp V6 with a choice of 6-speed manual or auto.

    I bet it'll be a continued hit in the UK too, along with the Focus we don't get :sad2:

    i see so many obvious design cues "borrowed" from other NICER cars that have been out for years now.

    thats why the car looks decent for a ford

    the reason ford fails in NA is because they dont give us the cars that Europe gets...which are better in my opinion

    Europeans engineer Euro Fords for Europe, and the rest of the world really. Even Mexicans with money will be able to buy this car new. :mamoru:

    The reason we don't get it is because the Mondeo is a 'large Family Car' in the UK, but it would only be the size of a compact here. It's simply too expensive to be so small.

    so ford lost almost 13 billion dollars last quarter, and yet they don't want to sell a car they'd know would sell well w/ the american public here in the states? :ugh:
