Decent looking update. Although I feel like the backend still leaves a little to be desired. Can't wait to see how the ST evolves.

Any word on upgraded powertrains?

I hate bubble headlights. I know they use them to direct air from hitting mirrors and causing air sound in the cabin but I honestly would rather hear wind noise than have ugly headlights.

Looks good! I really want to see the next taurus though. They need to do something about the interior space as it seems too small for how bug they are.
Back in topic lol i like the new focus and fusion. I just really wish they put some kund of v6 in em. Heck maybe even a slightly detuned version if the current 3.6 ecoboost in the taurus SHO.

The good news is the next Taurus will be on a new platform. Its supposed to be based on an enlarged Fusion platform, so it should be much more space efficient.

My guess is late 2015 for 2016MY. We haven't even seen any spy shots for it yet.

I like the early MK3 styling better. At least it gets HID lights now. My biggest complaint with the early ones is that it wasn't even an option.

The interior does look nicer, though.

They look like LED lights to me, but who knows because Ford offers the HIDs on the Fiesta and Focus in Europe, but only on the Focus ST here. Maybe they're wising up, now that the Corolla has LED headlights standard across the board.

The GTs have LED fogs, V6 and GT500 still have halogen fogs. LEDs are a lot more efficient with power, cooler, last longer and are able to be fit into smaller locations, aimed exactly where the engineers want them and they can be brighter than HIDs.

Are they adjustable by the buyer?

Haven't seen the LEDs adjustable, other than the high beams. Most the mfgs are making the high beams automatic if they use LEDs.

If you are going to get a Focus, do yourself a favor and get an ST.
