(Not Ford) American cars sold here as well as discussion relating to the North American automotive market.
Welcome to the imported auto discussion rooms. Whilst we’re a Ford forum, many of us are car enthusiast and share a passion for many different cars irrespective of the badge. This is where these rooms come in.
We encourage everyone to discuss anything with four wheels but remember that...
It appears that Ford have been a little lazy disguising the new Taurus since it's only a few weeks for being officially revealed. Anyway, attached are spy shots of both the interior and exterior fairly poorly covered.
For me the exterior looks alright. Fairly conservative, but that seems to be...
And no, this won't be sold in Australia as the Falcon so don't make silly comments about it being so.
It's a breath of fresh air in the effluent filled world of automotive journalism.
No reference to:
- Ford's financial situation,
- The near cancellation of the Taurus in '06,
- "For years Ford relied on trucks and SUVs"
Barely aluded to:
- The disastrous '96 cockroach redesign
Attached are photos of the new Chrysler 200C concept which was revealed at the Detroit MS a few hours ago.
It looks great and it just makes you wonder how the same company that made the Sebring and Avenger can also make something this good looking?!?!
Good to see some positive press for Ford although this car has been in the works for a while.
Seems like this reporter may have been living under the "2006 Ford will fail" rock:
Oh wait, did I mention it's based on the Suzuki Capuccino?
While I'm a massive fan of the original Cobra and I see this is as sacrilege of sorts, that thing is pretty awesome! If it was a little cheaper and available locally, I'd consider one just for the fun factor.
If you can read...
Hi can't recall seeing this posted bu thought it interesting enough to share.
If it has been posted last month whilst I was busy, I will consider myself slapped and go to the corner:p
Toyota and its Lexus luxury vehicles "don't...
GM us is in financial trouble and is trying to go green in a hurry, and they present this?
Maybe I'm harsh, but I definately want to try a lane change in it
Ford seems to be in a better position then GM or Chrysler.
Why doesn't this forum have a thread for posting videos?

Here's something you don't see everyday, pictures of the limo for whomever becomes the next U.S. president being tested by Cadillac.
In a rather interesting move, GM have revealed several new models during a press conference yesterday.
The most significant car for us is the Chevy Cruz because I believe that'll be the new Holden Viva or Epica (albeit with a better nose than this Chevy version).
Another car of interest is the...
It'll be interesting to see if GMH put's their hand up for a few....
300 Kw and 540 nm sounds good for a 5.0.
Blue II, an insider on Blueovalnews.com advises it is DOHC with VCT and PFI (not DI).
ther is another project you might be interested in:
Let Speculation and imagination run wild - 500hp engine for FPV or a Super XR8?
GM's big capacity V8s will be...
Some of the US Forums are saying this might be the 2010 Taurus.
Wasn't sure where to put this, so being an American report and on the american version, thought here was as good as any.
Seem's he is not in the usual awe of the Mighty VE. Check out the prices, again further proof that either we are being cahrged too...
Gee, we didn't see that one coming - Commodore flogs a dumb ass Detriot car.
Is this type of Front Suspension allowed in Top Doorslammer:
am in America at the moment, wide roads, lots of TV channels and poor food and I saw one of these. I guess it's like that Freestyle we thought looked like the Territory but this thing, from the back looked just...
Attached are photos of the Chevy Transverse which is Chev's new cross over to take on the Ford Edge. From a purely cosmetic point of view, I really like the interior of this car. Makes the ege seem a little plain. But the outside, on the other hand, leaves a bit to be desired. The headlamps remind...
Well, as an old-time Cadillac fan, I have to admit I am somewhat excited and will definitely be checking out the CTS, although I'm not a huge fan. Even as a kid I've dreamed of owning a Cadillac and I guess I'll have a...
Attached is what is believed to be the first photo of the upcoming Dodge Challenger's interior completely uncovered. Am I the only one blown away with how boring and characterless it is? It's got a nice retro body, yet it looks like the interior was just an afterthought and they gave it no thought...
After pics of this car uncovered leaked onto the internet a week ago, Cadillac has revealed full details. 550hp/410kWs!
Shows Ford North America can built decent cars.
A fully loaded Taurus AWD SEL (Ghia) sells for around US$30,000.
With our exchange rate, that's about AUS$35,000 for an AWD Fairlane Ghia Replacement.
Could it be sold here under $40K - you bet!
I love it how American's say that if something is the best in the USA then it's obviously the best in the world. hehe. Anyway, according to Ford, the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable are the world's only large family cars to earn both the IIHS Top Safety Pick rating and the U.S. government's highest...
I do believe that this is legit and not some joke. Shortly after the Mustang GT500KR was revealed, Shelby Automobiles and FoMoCo are hooking up to make a limited number of Super Snakes which come with either 440kWs (600hp) or 533kWs (725hp) although the latter won't come with a warranty and I...
Looks great and importantly it's more than just a bodykit. The standard 500bhp has been increased to 540bhp which in our language is around 397kWs!!! Unfortunately it still comes with a solid rear axle.
Apparently Mulally's a huge fan of the Taurus name and they're supposed to make the announcement at the Chicago Auto Show soon. Just heard that on the telly so I can't back it up with an article.
Driving down St. Kilda boulevard 2 days ago, i spotted a lime green Mustang (LHD) with a UAM registered plate, i thought it was strange (UAM plates were Holden's VE test mules and 1st production cars) So, when it got closer, and i could see the car in much more detail, i noticed little Holden...
A wagon hey? Doesn't do anything for me to be honest although that Cobra sketch with blue stripes looks nice! I'd rather see something like that make it into production even though the rear visibility would be very...
After 21 years and almost 7 million cars, the Ford Taurus is finally getting the bullet next week. Even though the Ford Fusion and Five Hundred (which were meant to replace the Taurus) have been on sale for quite some time, Ford will only be ceasing production in a few days.
In 1996 they sold...
Found this on another forum
I'm not sure if I love it or hate it. :thinking: :confused:
Road & Track magazine has recently been speculating about the Mustang facelift due in 2009 and the all-new one due in 2012. It's expected that the facelift in 09 will bring with it the new 3.5L V6 and the 4.6L V8 will probably grow in size and power. But what they say about the all new one was what...
Whoever built this should be shot:
