Remember the Focus in 1999? Jacques Nasser said to get the car out, with all the problems it had and all. He said make the people bring the cars back. Wrong decision. Had the Focus been handled properly, most of the issues the 1st year woudn't have happened. Needless to say Nassar isn't here anymore )thank goodness). Believe me, I want this thing out tomorrow. I sell Ford's and people are starting to ask about it. We need this car in the showrooms today, but when something is rushed, problems can arise.
I understand the need to get it right, but the engine was announced ages ago as well. I just don't want to see Ford miss opportunities they can't afford (both literally and figureatively) to miss.

I too am really looking forward to the MKX.

I also ditto the above, why must everything be "gay" Jcopin?

Don't know about the ride, but the interiors are completely different. Personally, I like the Ford/Lincoln interior better.

Actually they aren't. The upcoming CX-9 will be the sister vehicle to the Edge. The CX-7 is an independent Mazda effort not directly related to any Ford products. Here's a direct quote from this article:

If you're also of the mind that the CX-7 will give you a hint at what to expect with the upcoming 2007 Ford Edge crossover, think again.
The closest cousin to the CX-7 is the rock-solid Mazda6 midsize sedan, which also shares some of its basic underbody architecture with the Edge. But the larger, three-row CX-9 crossover will actually be closer to the Edge, according to Mazda spokesman Jeremy Barnes, because it will use the same 265-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6, six-speed automatic transmission and many of the suspension components. But the CX-9 will be longer, wider and taller than the Edge.

Right you are, Mark. I got the CX-7 and CX-9 mixed up. Thanks for the clarification!

Test mules or prototypes, whatever you wanna call em
Hey NIXTANG, I work at a Ford dealer here in PA, and I an SO EXCITED to see the Edge at my place. I too really want to see the Vista Roof as well. The whole top of the Edge and MKS is glass, with twin power sunshades. The front gets the open air, while the back gets skylights. I can't wait to see this. The Edge is going to be HUGE!!!
