    Meh. Maybe it's the red.... maybe it's the camera angles... maybe it's full of meh.

    Looks like a Ford Taurus and a Dodge Charger had a baby!

    I think the current model looks better (I may be biased, wife drives a '10 Fusion Sport) but this new 2013 is sharp looking. I think it most definately has a Euro flair to it. Biggest letdown for me is no more Sport w/263 hp V6...but a turbo 4cyl may be fun to drive as well.

    It actually looks like a larger version of the current Focus.

    Ford did a great job. It is definitely going to have a nice presence on the road. Makes Woman's '09 Milan look dated now...dammit...

    It looks pretty nice. Definitely does have a euro feel to it to me as well. The only thing I would change is that uggggggly ass grille and go back to the current universal Ford 3-bar design.

    I really like the grill and bottom lip. Not sure how I feel about the headlights. Just looks kinda stretched...

    They are saying 250hp out of the 2.0 ecoboost. Wonder what a little tuning could do

    Huh. My first take was 'yuck' looks like a Chrysler. Then as I looked at the pics it started to grow on me. Looking at the grille from dead in front it loses the Dodgy appearance.

    Looks WAY nicer than the current styling. Good one Ford!
