    The interior looks pretty nice. The exterior looks like a candy assed version of the crown vic. And 3L v6 pulling 2 tons, aye carumba thats probably a high 17 - low 18 second car.

    prolly would be more attractive with the Lincoln LS 280hp V8.

    Define luxury. To me, it means fairly smooth ride, leather, and power everything. I think a lot of cars even smaller mid-size ones fit into this category today? Aren't there optional, more powerful engines available for this car? Perhaps in the future.

    Im sure luxury can be defined in a lot of ways, but when a car replaces the taurus, to me that does not qualify...as for more optional engines, there are none to my knowledge....its a camry fighter, nothing more

    Well once Ford SVT team starts getting together and start bringing out new cars/trucks in 2005 or 2006 Ford claimed that there would be an unspecified new car added to the SVT lineup. Maybe this would be the car? If so I can't wait because I think its hot looking to begin with and once SVT gets there hands on it it will be even more hot!

    "Not sure what you mean by luxury Sal....isnt this the replacement for the Taurus?"

    not exactly , replaceing the taurus is a 2 tier deal at ford , first is the 500 , which is more of a impala deal , then the futura will pick up the slack at the samller end , futura will be based off the mazda 6 .

    if you ask me id say yes 500 replaces the taurus diretly , by just going up in size , and the futura replaces the mystic/contour twins that went out of production a few years ago

    "unspecified new car added to the SVT lineup" i doubt it will be the 500 , last time around it was called a SHO and only came with a slushbox and they had a hard time moving them , well see a svt futura before a 500
