    Exactly what a baby from a Focus and a Taurus would look like...

    The exterior doesn't surprise me at all - the interior does...

    Doesn't it look like a trimmed Crown Vic? I like the interior, but when I first saw it I though CV or minature Maurader.

    I don't really see Crown Vic/Grand Marquis in it at all I think tru504187211 has it. The way the headlights and grille are look a bit like a Focus but sort of stretched bigger. The dash also has the Focus look to it.

    DOH! You would disagree!! I am looking at my 2003 Marauder brochure and with regard to the headlights, they actually look more like the current Deville IMO. The lights are compressed horozontally for this new car compared to the Marauder, but look at the rims, they are practically IDENTICAL to the big Merc's. I'm sorry, but the grille does look like the Marauders as well, complete with the appropriate Ford/Merc logo right in the center! Check again.

    Pretty artless, but that's the hallmark of Ford... barring the new Mustang concept, of course (but even that is a Mach 1/Shelby 500 rip off). It's just plain boring to look at. The exterior is generic, and the interior isn't even on par with Lincoln.

    I can see the Vic in the exterior. Interior looks pretty nice. Clean, comfortable, simple.

    The rims?? They don't even have the same amount of spokes and they aren't chrome!! But they are just about identical to Taurus ones The grille does look a little bit like a Crown Vic one but not the Marauder. Most cars have an emblem in the centre of the grille.

    I dunno Ralph, I guess I just don't got the same imagination as you

    it has alot of passat and volvo in it ( and some volvo part numbers )

    really to me it looks like there trying to do a car with more upscale looks instaed of going with the past 20 years experence with plain jane cars that look right at home at hertz or rent a heep
