  1. Wow, I don’t even know what to say about that truck. One thing is for sure, they won’t confuse this model with the previous generation, although I don’t know if I would consider that a positive attribute at this point.
  2. Congrats on the new car! Looks great!

    Unfortunately the end result is awful looking.

    That’s funny because I tend to think the monochromatic appearance packages are the best looking of the Chevy packages. Although it’s very difficult to polish a turd.
  5. Exactly, I hate when Ford does this. Real styling changes are what attract people’s attention and creates desire to upgrade.
  6. The Raptor still has them. They moved from the center console to the ceiling, which is a much better location.
  7. The Fusion is still a good looking car, although the interior could use a little update. I still enjoy driving my 2016 work car. It’s a solid vehicle, and I think it has aged well. For somebody new to the vehicle it probably works, but getting somebody to upgrade from their existing Fusion to a newer model is where the problem lies as far as I’m concerned.
  8. I would argue they didn’t even try to compete. You can’t let vehicles die on the vine and expect people will want to buy them. The 2013 Fusion was a very competitive entry into the midsize market. Unfortunately today’s Fusion is essentially the same car as the 2013. Ford has a bad history of doing this, and it is hard to understand why.
  9. Hey now, I had a Probe that had 150k on it when I got rid of it. It was a good car for me.
  10. I’m not exactly sure why this topic is in this forum considering it has pretty much turned into politics, which is about as enjoyable as a root canal. I thought about engaging, but it isn’t worth it. Nobody’s convincing anyone to come to their side even though people have more in common than they realize, but aren’t willing to find that common ground. I come to this forum because I enjoy talking and learning about Ford products, so time to abandon this thread.
  11. It might be a good policy if approximately 66% of their power didn’t come from coal. I would venture to say the modern ice powered cars would pollute less than the those coal fired power plants charging those electric cars.
  12. I have a love hate relationship with California. I love the land and what it has to offer, as well as some good people, but hate its politics. Make no mistake, if California politicians had the ability to push their agendas onto the rest of the country they would. Thankfully they can’t. The exception to that would be some awful case law that has come out of the 9th circuit that has established some bad precedent for the rest of the country at the federal level. Of course the 7th circuit has done some real doozies too, so you aren’t alone.
  13. You are seriously using the PRC as example of good public policy?
  14. I guess it depends on which scientists you listen to doesn’t it.
