The Future of Ford as Told by Mulally

Ford Motor Co. will replace or significantly upgrade its entire lineup of domestic Ford, Mercury and Lincoln vehicles by 2010, CEO Alan Mulally told a group of journalists during a private dinner in the company's Dearborn design studio Wednesday night.

That's an update from previous projections that Ford would update 70% of that lineup by 2008.

"We're really excited about it," Mulally said. "There's no reason why we can't really build cars and trucks that people really do prefer."

The earnest new executive sat between two of his lieutenants -- Derrick Kuzak, the new global product development chief at Ford, and Mark Fields, Ford's president of the Americas -- during the dinner.

The event was held in advance of next week's auto show in Detroit to give an update on the state of the ailing automaker as it heads into one of the most difficult years in its history.

as far as looks go , the outside of the new escape looks good (from the article on here) but if that's "upgrading" they better try harder!

the 3.5L sounds like it'll be competitive hopefully their power-trains keep improving like some really need to.
