Now throw the 3.5L in there and tweak the interior.

The square-shouldered front end design doesn't mesh well with the Audi-ripoff glasshouse. The whole thing feels warmed over.

Can't wait until Ford ships the 500 out and replaces it with something a bit more 427-inspired. (That is, if they know what the hell they're doing.)

I'd still pass and take a G-body or LX over this.

People will still think it is supposed to be a 'Taurus Replacement' and balk at the prices.

It has a full sized car price tag, but the masses think it's a mid szed, [at least that is what the media told them.]

That... doesn't look like a Ford in the front anymore...

Altezza taillights do nothing for this design. I saw my first Montego in person today (remember I live in Canada), and the taillights on that thing look ridiculously huge. The 500's aren't as noticable, even though they're exactly the same size.

FORD was stupid with the 500 all they had to do is put in an engine with some balls. The 500 was is a nice car with a great high seating position and AWD, if it could move its fat butt out of its own way it would sale better. :banghead:

To me, this car & the Avalon are the represantation

of EVERYTHING that a big car should NOT be....

fat like a pig, ugly, too tall, boring, cookie-cutter-bland

and to top it all off: FWD with a sideways motor. :puke:

At least the STS & Park Ave. had styling on their side.

The 500 & Avalon just look embarassing & awkward

to my eyes... like a down syndrome possum.

I always liked Five Hundred for its vast passenger and cargo room and the craftsmanship of the (bland) interior, and the cup holders in the doors-I hope Ficve Hundred or its replacement never lose that, but it really needs some style-its really staid as is.

I hope Ford drops both the Five Hundred and the Panthers by 2011 and replaces both of them with a Mustang derived sedan. I don't think that there is much of a market for sedans roomier than the 300 anymore; people who need the space buy SUV's or minivans.

LOW CARS ARE NOT FUNCTIONAL CARS. plus, they already have the crown vic.

the chair high driving position is great. negates a lot of bad things about the car. Ford's only problem is it takes them YEARS to fix anything.
