Fiesta > (10 year lag, give or take) > Festiva > Aspire (10 year lag, give or take) > Fiesta
Pinto > Escort > Focus
Falcon > Maverick > Fairmont > Tempo > Contour (six year lag) > Fusion
Fairlane > Torino > Elite > Granada > LTD > Taurus > Five Hundred/Taurus
Full Size (LTD/Galaxie/XL) > Crown Victoria (discontinued)
Continental > Town Car > MKS > Continental
Versailles > Continental > LS > Zephyr/MKZ
