yeah i said fusion cause thats already available in the taurus SHO, i figure have the little fusion available with a nice powerful naturally aspirated engine and the bigger taurus available with the twin turbo, that way ford wouldn't be killing its sales of the SHO by having the engine available in two different cars, that and i kinda like the looks of the fusion better and in my experience turbo cars are freakin high maintenance

Makes sense. It's never a good thing for one company to have two models that compete with each other.

When I'm not traveling to Jupiter via my nuclear powered rocket, I reside in Dearborn.

Probably never.

Edit: I have a better one. When they admit that the slave cylinder on Rangers is shit and change the design. HAHA

Thay wanted to put a 302 in the ranger back in 1996 but they could no keep the wheel's on the ground so they said no go. Ford said to many young kid's would buy it and kill there self.

they drive great, but its about time that the V6 is improved... the current one is way too weak to compete on the market... I had a GT and it was awesome to drive, but they're not very comfy after about 50-75 miles down the highway...

I think this new engine will propell mustang sales and help them compete against not only GM's new Camaro but also the Japanese imports very nicely....

I don't know what (if any) tweaks to the body are coming for the '11's, but I just might hold off on getting one until then. I don't need a GT.

And they're finally going to be available with a 6-speed gearbox.
