Re: nextgen MKS? - Burlappcars
It will be interesting to see how they get the names back in the lineup again after 6 or so years of confusion and spending how much $$ to try to get this MK thing to work. Also, someone here mentioned in a different thread (sorry I don't remember who) that it could be easier to start with the renaming as the new models designs are introduced. This way the new design and marketing etc could introduce the new names along with the new designs.
Also an alternative would be to phase in something in the way of MKZ Zephyr or MKX Aviator where the near top line (being we will have Black Label as the top)would have the name attached initially. Then after that first model year, the MK would be dropped and the name which was there prior will stay. Of course these are just some ways of many that could be done with success.
Regarding the next MKS. There needs to be better rear seating room that the current does not offer. The Impala-based XTS offers more rear seating room than the current MKS.
Getting more excited over the thought of suicide doors on the next MKS. Go a step further and show front and rear slider doors instead of the regular swing open type.
