Backing up is difficult for every CUV and truck owner, ever in history. Not sure I would pick on Taurus so much just for that. I have seen far worse, using style as the reasoning.....

...but a sedan with a big Kindle wedged into its console is a "cool toy"?

Put the caps back on the markers.
I would include the 400hp MKZ and Bronco and mini Bronco too.

But do keep in mind the troll source you had responded to.

Too bad...pass! No wonder Ford sales dropped so much in China and we keep seeing the down trend in NA as well.

It does feel long, but keep in mind, completely new products take many years. They did not just change Ranger sheet metal after all.

Eh...fair enough, but I don't consider the MKZ to be much of a toy. Its driving impressions have never precisely thrilled, even with the top motor.

As for the others, I can't have an opinion about vehicles that feel like they've been "around the corner" since about the time the last Bronco was axed...!!!

(Yes, I know that was 1996...and yes, the ramp-up feels that long)
