Over at AutoBlog they have a great article about Ford designers discussing the future of Ford vehicles. And one thing bothers me, for Europe, they say that customers desire a dynamic designs, cars that look like they're moving even when standing still. Like the Iosis concept seen above. But what do they have to say about the US and Canada? Not much that's what.
So expect to see some sharp new exciting designs for Europe and the same old crap for the US. Is there any wonder why Ford is loosing market share? The old saying "I don't know if it will sell in Peoria" Doesn't apply in the 21st century, people in the heartland of America would accept the "Dynamic/ Kinetic" designs if Ford took the risk. Wasn't the origianl Taurus a risk? Didn't middle America guy it up like hot cakes?
Ford give us simple Americans some credit, and then give us something like the Iosis. The same old crap won't sell forever.
