Job 1 for both the 2010 Taurus and MKS is 04/27/09.

I guess this is probably when the Eco Boost will launch as well.

So the Taurus will not be late in the year, as has been said lately?

I always understood it to be that new 2010 Taurus would be released in the first half of '09.

First Fusion, then Mustang, then Taurus.

...First Fusion, then Mustang, then Taurus.

Yup
...think I read speculation the Taurus was supposed to "come out" in either March or May
but perhaps that should have been (or was If I Recall INcorrectly) the Job 1 date,
so
with Ford's ultra careful launches they probably won't really hit dealers until June
but
imho that's a Good Time - like they're giving each new model just enough of the spotlight to make the real star the NEWNESS of the (nearly) entire lineup
2009 is gonna be a Heaven of a Year http://home.surfree.com/~pauld/biggrin.gif

Do you think the Taurus will be introduced at the Detroit show, or the Chicago show?

^ well, kinda think NAIAS being the main event, they'll try to keep Lincoln from getting upstaged at (nearly) all costs...
(with the exception of the production Fiestas < plural ;))
so I expect the 'new' MKZ, EcoBeast MKS, & the production or nearly-production MKT there (And maaaaaaybe even another concept - MKR-ver2?)
= sorta the ultimate Lincoln-extravaganza

Chicago has been a Mercury show to a degree in the past
& of course it's where the Taurii(&Sable) are built...
yet they'll probably have a slew of new Mustangs for people to SIT IN :D
...dunno
maybe they'll keep the Taurus for NYC - think that's the last big show/closest to intro

Do you know anything about the EB-Flex yet, range?
If it's alongside the new Taurus it'd be a way to have a semi-extravaganza for Ford then too - esp. if they also show the latest euroFocus as an 'appetizer' :drool:


...imagining a big sign by the Focus-on-the-turntable:
Ford will NEVER build this car for the U.S.
We're making the NEXT-GEN for You!

Here is how I see the 2010 Ford rollouts:

Ford

-Mustang: Has been confirmed for LA in NOV.
-Fusion: Since it is being built in Nov or Dec, it might be shown at a random date before the LA show, maybe in Sept or Oct?
-Milan: Same as Fusion
-MKZ: Same as Fusion
-Taurus: Detroit, definatly
-Sable?: Chicago...that is if there will be a new Sable
-Expedition: This update might be at Chicago or NY
-Navigator: This update might be at Chicago or NY
-MKT: Detroit, for sure
-Edge?: If the update is coming for 2010, I would say it will be shown at Detroit.
-MKX?: If the update is coming for 2010, I would say it would be shown at New York


Then we have 2011 to look forward to, including...

-Fiesta: 4 and 5dr...with maybe 3dr later
-Focus: 4 and 5dr...with a likely 3dr
-Explorer
-Mercury small car
-Possible Mountaineer
-Possible Focus C-Max
-Possible Mercury version of C-Max

Then for 2012....
-Escape
-Flex update
-Possible F-100
-Possible Fusion
-Possible Milan
-Possible MKZ
-MKS update
-Mariner
-Possible Lincoln small CUV
-Possible Edge
-Possible MKX
-Possible Expedition
-Possible Navigator
-Possible Ranger

So...we have a very, very, very busy and exciting next few years!

Any word on a base engine for the Taurus?
I'd expect the ecoboost as an upgrade, but are they considering a high MPG model?
It would be nice to see a base car with the 2.5 getting 33 highway MPG
A small V6 getting abt 30 MPG
Ecoboost getting abt 27 MPG

the Job 1 date for 2010 Sable is N/A, so there won't be a new Sable.

No date on the 2010 Flex yet.

The last day to pace an order for the Taurus X is 1/16/09. So I expect the X will fade away just before the launch of the 2010 Taurus.

I sure hope the 2010 Taurus does better.

Just saw in the Tribune that they are cutting down to one shift.

Don't think they should offer a high mileage engine. It's a large car and the 3.5 does pretty good in terms of mileage, however, I'm still glad I got an 06 Freestyle. I get almost 30 mpg on the highway.

I just got my Ford Owners Mag yesterday. They had an article about the design studio. One picture showed a designed sitting in front of a clay 2010 Taurus which was 3/4 covered.

Have any Ford employees seen the new Taurus and what do you think?

That clay model is going to make Ford a lot of happy customers and hopefully turn Ford back into the #1 Auto Company in the USA!!!
