FoMoCo's Most significant model of 08'

Although the LR3, Mercury Sable, and Ford Focus are tech already on the road, and FoMoCo is in the process of selling Jaguar/ Land Rover, what model across the board of Ford-Lincoln-Mercury, Jag/ LR, Volvo or Mazda will be the best in terms of sales and consumer reaction in the 2008 MY?

Re: FoMoCo's Most significant model of 08'

I had to pick the Focus. It is already here, and getting good reviews. This is a step above the old Focus, and will help the Focus image as it readies for the new model. It has to improve sales and image so Verve can neatly fit under it.

The MKS would have been my pick, but it probably won't be a 2008 model, neither will the Flex.

Unlike the Flex, when it was presented to the public last spring in NYIAS 07, the MKS we will see in a few days in LA is almost production ready.

You are right though, both the KS and the Flex will be early 09 models, introduced in the summer of 08.

I voted for the MKS as it is the model that will consolidate the future of this new re-focused Lincoln-Mercury division.

Flex. Sure, the most significant car of Ford Motor Company for 2008 , and, maybe, entire decade. Flex is the "new minivan" for Ford, Flex will capture the buyers are going out Explorers and Expeditions.... And Flex is the most atractive car from Ford in a decade.

I want my Flex in red...please

By all mean Flex. Its one of the very few Fords I'd risk being seen in. Other than Modeo

The question would be, what daring Ford would risk letting you be seen in?

To be honest, I like the new Taurus, I would buy it over the Avalon, and also the Taurus X.
A Mustang Bullitt is good, but I prefer the upcoming Camaro, so if Ford put some cash on the hood, they might get my attention.
Remember, SobeSVT, I am a customer, and right now, Ford needs my money.
The Flex, is a winner.. its unlike anything in Fords showrooms now

I didn't know you were in the market. What happened to the HHR?
