Ranger out sells Taurus, Mustang, Fiesta, and Flex YTD. And now, its gone forever.
Madness indeeeed, but know where you are coming from
Mundane Mondeo's are still allowed to exist in Fords of Europe's line-up with 2,500 European sales last month, when our good ole RWD Cortina use to sell 33,000-55,000 just in the UK only, in a good month. It to broke and still holds the British car sales record for the most car sales in one year 1979 when it averaged 16,500 UK sales per month as it faced the axe by Ford.
Mondeo 2,500 November European sales is very worrying, as this will probably be Ford World Car just like the Escape 23,000 sales now becomes a European Kuga with 4,500 sale. By fitting power plants that are haft the cubic capacity and cutting down weight are the real good things about the new Escape it would have improved MPG massive way in a old escape as well, Ford though will put down excellent MPG its boring dull bland bullshitting aerodynamics, you might as well put big 50's wings on it just to add to the bull. Meantime in the future SUV Skoda's new boxy shaped Yeti that is more practical with more headroom and legroom in the rear seats will give first class travel and comfort, the boxy Yeti averages 61.5 MPG outguns the super slick aerodynamic Kuga's averages 47 MPG.
Come 2014 won't we looking the new US
Kuga with sales of 3,000 and wondering just how Ford managed to shift 23,000 US sales every month of the old boxy (so called outdated) Escape that everybody brought and liked in big number.

2012 FOE Big losses, GM Europe will report big huge losses the way to go - boring products & boring dull kinetic styling not giving us the products we want? Something thats small fun to drive RWD, a classic styled car a car that inspirers with soul, not never ever changing eternal boredom on 4 wheels.
Just 1 awesome RWD From Ford in Europe, will end Greeks bailouts, end lost AAA ratings, get folk buying cars again get the worlds economy movin again, put RWD fun rather than FWD monotony back on Europes roads , use classic car styling again, rather than appliance. make cars that are fun exciting & real blast to drive again
Make something just one RWD car worth buying getting out of bed in the morning to work for, aspire to own, something worth spending money on, rather than left out sitting on the sidelines doing absolutely nothing locked out of Ford of Europe's showrooms.
