    Talking Lincoln Zephyr, V6 included!

    http://www.thecarconnection.com/inde...&sid=173&n=156

    I like the interior colors, but I would have to see it in person. I don't think this car will be a threat to Cadillac.

    The concept was a lot better, they butchered the rear end on the production. And it's wrong wheel drive.

    But AWD will come soon. It's as exciting to me a Lexus E300. Well actually it's more exciting to me than the Camry E300!

    But then so is a bar of soap.

    Lincoln Owner Speaks

    I love the interior - it's simply elegant!! I love the availabity of 4WD. The exterior took the "safe" route, so it's not real ExCiTiNg. I dunno if I'll buy one or not. The Mustang convert is a comin' and THAT is really temping me...

    While the Zephyr appears to be a dismal blip on the radar screen compared to the original flashy dashy concept (and ohh those tail lights, they are horrid!), the FORD FUSION is absolutely TERRIFIC. I actually WANT one of these, its very very true to the original Ford 427 concept except for of course the engine. The interior is nice, and honestly, this WILL steal sales from even the BMWs and Lexuses of the world, and unfortunately, alot of Lincoln people too...

    I liked it. Not as much as the VW in the same article, though.

    Seriously though, the Zephyr and Fusion (and whatever ghey crap bone they throw Mercury as usual) are PROPERLY proportioned to the V6, just like the CTS. The FiveHundred and Montego are very poorly proportioned for that size engine. I think were gonna have a situation where the SMALLER car eclipses the large one in sales by leaps and bounds.

    THats the point though......its supposed too..

    Its a shame that after Porsche designed that engine Ford never continued to develope it themselves......it would be around the 280hp mark by now....

    i guess your right about the 6 in the linkie ..maybe i dont like it since people are saying that the LS will be killed off and this thing will replace it...I say hang zephyr sheet metal on the ls and power it with a 4 litre V12 that revs to 13k....give it rear suicide doors and option for convertible

    Zephyr waaaay back in the day ment something very very speical (cadillac killer on every level).....but somewhere around 1978 ford decided to use it on a fairmount ...and now they hung it on a mazda ....

    for some of us there will only be one "zephyr"

    your dead on about the 500 ....theyd beatter give it a beatter engine and keep the CVT tranny

    According to Ford this car is not meant to replace anything...just add to the stable.

    This car sounds like another Cimmaron, a cheap car with a slightly more fancy interior. Besides the car is not even built in America, it is built in Mexico (using cheap labor).

    I think I prefer the understated class styling of the LS, but I do like the traditional flair styling here...
