The Ford Fusion is of a new kind of car, obviously we don't want to be classified with imports or ricers. And we can't quite be called American Muscle. So what class does the Ford Fusion fit in? PLEASE BE CREATIVE AND MAKE SOMETHING NEW UP! :smokin:

Alright, all joking aside not only do we need a discription that exemplifies the CD338 platform, but we also need a visual identification that sets the car apart.
Examples: Mustang = Running Horse - SVT - Roush - Steada
Corvette = Crossed Checkered Flags - Z-06
BMW = M Series
Focus = SVT- Steada - Roush
Dodge = Hemi - SRT

etc. etc and so on.

Maybe it's just me, or has Ford lost the ability to promote an automobile and bring excitement into the market or are we going to settle with that Spazmatic jerk from American Idol to pull Ford out of the black hole.

So, you are going to "fault" an old lady for having taste? I have seen, what must have been, 65+ individuals driving all sorts of cars that were much younger than the Crown Vics or Caddys you would expect them to be driving. The better the sales, the more likely Ford will keep the Fusion for a long time. The Five Hundred, on the other hand, is selling poorly and the Taurus is actually out-selling it even though 2006 is the Taurus' last year. Ford should have probably updated the Taurus, and made the Five Hundred with a V8 and rear wheel drive. When I get "grandpa" age, I will likely be driving a Mustang or Camaro...if they are still being made. 8)

There are very few Fusions of any description (drivers included) on the road in our town, Salisbury, MD.

The friendly local dealer, Sherwood Ford Lincoln Mercury, only had about eight Fusions in stock -- may have been seven or nine but definitely not six or 10 -- and a couple of them were 2006s. Sherwood sells a ton of pickups and Mustangs though and quite a few SUVs. I think he had like one Five Hundred, an '06. I could be wrong but I think we have the only SEL AWD in town.

It's a little bit discouraging to not see more Fusions on the road. There are lots and lots of ricers though. Boz
