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...

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

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

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!

Think aston martin when you look at it. First time you see it, seems kinda ugly, but quickly grows on you I think.

I like how plastic truly is taking over new cars. Anyone wanna try and lug that rear bumper around a shop to put it on? I think that quarter panel is about the size of a piece of legal paper. I've always looked at my cougar and been envious of 1960's iron, with quarter panels as long as the puppies car is wide! Now....I've got the dinosaur with a [relatively] massive quarter. Ohhh yeaaauuuuuhhhhhhhh.

It's already been said, but I also think it looks like a smaller version of the current Taurus except for that Chrysler-looking grill.  It's gonna take awhile for that to grow on me.  But on the other hand, we recently upgraded to an '09 Taurus (aka Five Hundred) and I wouldn't say that grill is any better.  So who knows?
