partly for SullyND's desire for a 'heretical' Mustang 4-door (actually 2!)
& partly for Syr's "...I think casting Mercury as a sporting, rwd brand...makes a lot of sense."
& with the Mustang-architecture frontend from the CD4-3-Fwd-Rwd-Poll
the Mustang-sourced drivetrains could be grafted ON to other rear compartments???
specifically ones that neither Ford nor LINCOLN would be tempted to use!
Focus sedan rear compartment (with dual-back)
Fusion rear compartment (ditto^)
S-Max rear compartment
the following with height-adjustable suspensions;
low = for the street/highway/loading,
high = for not-so-softroading:
Escape rear compartment
Everest rear compartment = Territory too??
^ all 5-doors
T6 pickup cabin &(or just) bed
wonder if small front-only electrics could provide AWD-like traction? ...to keep the drivetrains simple
* I'm too superstitious to use THE NAME
Capri, Mariner, MetaSpace
Puma, Bronco, Mesa
one trim: al cantara upholstery with leather bolsters + various gizmo pkgs
& instead of Sync/MFT, 'just' integration of "bring-along" tech
