For years, Ford fans and industry analysts have begged the automaker to import its superior Europe-only products to the United States. Not only would consumers be left with better cars, but proponents reckon Ford would like sell more, too.
Now, U.K. trade publication Just-Auto is reporting Ford could bring many of its European offerings to the United States as soon as next year. Models currently being considered include the Euro Focus, the all-new Mondeo, and the S-Max and Galaxy people movers. Further details were not given, but the models being looked at seem like obvious choices. Ford fans have been particularly adamant that the automaker bring the European Focus (pictured) stateside.
Most previous reports have indicated Ford had no plans to directly import its Euro-spec vehicles to the 'States. However, the company's dire financial situation may be prompting some "bold moves" on the part of Ford's management.
yeah, it's about time because they desperately need to replace the ancient first gen. focus and the dreadful windstar rebadged as a freestar minivan and the dead ovalish taurus and the uneconomic econoline van, and pretty much, they could just replace the entire range.
Got it from here.
