I cant see the link, but I did see a frontal photo of it the other day. Looks alright. Id like to see a rear end shot as well as an interior shot.

I like the front end on the 2010 better than the current edition. That 3.5 sounds like it may be a power house family car. What is this car competing against exactly?

I think my '08 looks better. Too much chrome on that one, looks gaudy.

I don't like Ford's current "design language" at all. Fugly.

I think it looks very stylish. That 3.5 might be competition for the Nissan Altima.

I think Ford overall lacks in sharp design, but they are getting there with the fusion. I really like this car and I like the facelift. I would like to see it offered with a manual transmission as standard equipment. I am looing forward to the fiesta supposedly arriving next year.

My Fusion is a stick-shift, you can certainly get them but only with the four-cylinder motor.

Anyway, what the car really needs sorely is an interior update. The worn-basketball finish on the steering wheel and the cheap dashboard materials are not impressive.

Ford does have sharp looking cars...in Europe

You probably know that already since you mentioned the Fiesta, but a lot of people don't realize that we've been getting the scraps for years...

As far as the Fusion goes, I say just bring over the Mondeo and call it a day.
