Re: 2009 Mercury Sable X

in the first months the 500/ freestyle were on sale, i barley saw any... but the new taurus/ X seem to be sliing very well, i mean i see many new taurus but surprisingly some X's too. Its sad though that this product will be gone in a few years, any word on the product placement of the next explorer?

& the pause in their large-Cuv plans is re-thinking how to fix intro'ing the FS without more exciting looks & drivetrain.
I seem to remember reading somewhere, before production began, that the Freestyle was expected to be at least half of the volume of the two.

The nice thing about the name X, is that it can be shared, and Ford never had huge numbers expected for the Freestyle, although it did not meet them.

BUT.....tell us more about ORE, On Road Explorer. Am I reading to much in to this, or are you referring to an all new product?

Tell, tell.

Is Mercury going to get a version?

Taurus - Flex - Explorer (more different from the car versions)


So does this mean a Sable-X will happen instead of an On-the-Road-Explorer Mountaineer version?
or in addition to the Mountie? (T6?)

Imho Merc needs MORE PRODUCT. Limiting them to 5 models ain't the way to increase sales...
that's why I'm hoping for a CD3/EUCD2 people&stuff mover of some kind (Not an Edge/MKX clone)/*cough*S-Max*cough*
and
one or two (2!) or MORE (!!!!) C2 vehicles
