I test drove the one with the 2.5l and was far from impressed. It was a lower end model but it just felt so bland to me. Im sure a fully loaded up eco boost wouldnt be too bad. I love the body lines. It just didnt feel right driving it for me.

You got to remember ford designed to db when they owned them. Plus really there are only so many original car designs. Eventually things look alike. From the side they look nothing alike.

I think a lot of companies have some explaining to do. It's almost every new car I see on the street has the Aston Martin style brake lights whether is be the Honda Odyssey to the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The new Fusion is horrendous IMO. It's also taken the same shape as the Optima.
