This is great news, any ideas on what they will send. Probably a Taurus and or Explorer. Fusion, Focus, Fiesta, Kuga and the Escape can be found a lot closer and from lower labor cost factories. Mustang would be cool but not really a good fit. I doubt the F150 would sell well over there and there replacing the ranger that we wont get.
