HO 3.5l V6
275hp 240 tq

225 hp 200 tq

T/C 3.5l v6

You have some pretty good ideas there Matt. Some of them may come true in the near future.

I would love to see a new Lightning but I think from what I hear Ford has passed that torch to Roush and Saleen, although I am with you on seeing a new one.

I think the Ford I would love to see the most right now is an FPV Falcon GT-P or F6 Typhoon over here.

Thanks, Andy. Out of all those, I really just wanna see a Crown Victoria that can haul, and kick some major hiney instead of our current 240 hp wonder

That Lightning would be cool, but I wanna SuperCrew, not RegularCab.

If they could sell that SVT Focus for around $28k I would rock it. Especially if I had $28k to spend.

The Crown Vic idea won't work. Mercury already tried that idea and it didn't work.

-An SVT Fusion would be nice. Throw in DI from Mazda and you will gain even more power. MB add Direct injection to a N/A V6 and gained 20 crank hp.

- Instead of your Focus ideas, all Ford has to do is simply bring the Euro Focus to the US. The ST model gets great reviews in Europe.

-I don't see a AWD Mustang, especially in the "R". It will be way too HEAVY.

-I'd love to see the SVT Adrenaline instead of the Lightening. That was a really great vehicle.

-The Ranger needs to be scrapped. It's old and has been left to whither. Get rid of it!
