Ford shafts America yet again.
First..not offering a Focus Vert....then canning the plans to bring the Falcon to the US..and now this? And planning on making the version America gets, WHEN IT GETS IT, 4 door only?
I think right now they are making more money overseas than in the US. I think maybe that is why they want them to have everything first and the best.
I think they do need to pay attention to the US, but lets face it americans are turning down US cars for imports. We get the crap because of it. Its a slippery slope. At least GM has been bringing us some winners here lately though even though some could have been here sooner.
But my big example is the Euro-spec Focus. That was a hot car. Sold in Europe really well, and for a long time. We never saw it here. That's just stupid. Maybe a few years ago, when I was in the market for a small sporty autocross car, I'd have chosen that instead. I was considering an SVT Focus, but I just didn't quite like it enough. Oh well.
It's still pretty ignorant to give America the shaft.
All you need is one badass car to change things around. Look at GM with the Malibu..they didn't put it overseas first, they brought it here..and they can't keep the things on the lots.
