Respectable numbers, what I would expect for the down turn in auto sales. Over all not bad Ford.

I keep seeing Continentals around me.  Since I can't get a CT6 into my driveway, I should put a Conty on my shopping list instead.

Back seat is so tight, anyone 6' tall or taller in your household will find it hard to get into and out of.

Nope, the back seat is not spacious for a full size sedan. Head room especially is below average when I think of what they were in the past and even now.

Full of sh!t, per usual, on topics like this. 

*Doesn't like Ford

"The Continental is itty bitty and doesn't fit an adult human"

*Loves GM*

"XT4 offers plenty of interior space"

The XT4 feels small as my Encore inside.

The Continental seems to hold its value better than the CT6 for some reason.  I can't find as good of a deal on a Conti as I can on a CT6.  But that CT6 wheelbase is so long that the Caddy will high-center at the top of my driveway.

That seems odd because with low sales you'd think that means low demand as well.. I guess a lot of people just refused to pay MSRP for it. 

That's a bummer you literally can't fit the Caddy in your driveway.

My Toronado scrapes the exhaust if I don't exit the driveway at an angle.   Oh well, time for a new house. :smilewide:

With my tiny garage and the stairs of the split level, I think I'm going to be looking for a new house sooner than later...more garage space and a single story ranch...

Guess that eliminates any exhaust-dragging toyotas from your driveway.

I really like this Rambler with Mother-in-law suite.

Have to say, pretty nice for a flat rambler which is awesome to not deal with steps.

Why can't you get a CT6 in your driveway?

Oh never mind I read about the low scraping.  Probably the CT6 should have height adjustable suspension.

The driveway is so steep and the wheelbase of the car is so long that it will bottom out at the top of the driveway where it goes from angled to horizontal.  

I've tried with a loaner from Cadillac last year.

I love the genius of Ford management, the Fusion is their #3 seller and up 10% for the year while the brand overall is down.  But kill the Fusion.  Once you leave a segment it is almost impossible to go back in.  I think someone at Ford read the Rick Wagoner "cut your way to profitability" playbook and thought it was a good idea.

So an A8, 7-series or E-class or S-class which all have adjustable height suspension is the answer.

Sure, and they all have horrid enough depreciation to make it a feasible purchase.

The E-Class could probably make it without a height adjustable suspension though, the 300C and CTS do.

The Fusion is up because they are basically sire selling them. Aside from that, they were not as profit heavy as their CUVs and not in as much demand overall, hence going bye bye. Quit trying to throw out phantom criticism when the reasons for it going away were pretty obvious.

Corrected above.

That's a CUV? That looks lower and smaller like a "typical" hatchback. 

Evolution...a car-like CUV, almost a 'wagon'.   Reminds me of the Venza profile.

      The new Lincoln Aviator will be introducing an Adaptive Suspension with Road Preview that uses the forward camera to sense potholes in the road and adjusts the suspension to minimize the impact felt in the cabin.   The system uses 12 sensors to monitor vehicle conditions like vehicle motion, body movement, steering input, acceleration, and braking. The sensors read at 500 times per second and can make adjustments 100 times per second, this totals out to 23,000 inputs per second of data. The system can operate each wheel independently. Lincoln developed the entire system in-house.
      Additionally, in a nod to the air sprung Lincolns of the past, there will be an available Air Glide Suspension which replaces the coil springs with guided air springs, enabling the Aviator to ride at several ride heights.  Over 70 mph, the Aviator lowers to Aero height for the best in efficiency and performance.  
      The Lincoln Aviator arrives in dealerships summer of 2019.

      Ford is planning a dramatic change to their European lineup. Autocar reported yesterday that the automaker will be replacing the Mondeo (Fusion to us), Galaxy, and S-Max with a new "single crossover-style estate model" - think Subaru Outback.
      Not many details are known about this new model. It is expected to use Ford's C2 platform which underpins the new Fiesta and Focus. A range of gas and diesel engines will be available, along with 48V mild-hybrid system. The new wagon is expected to arrive in early 2021 in Europe. Autocar notes that this model is expected to be sold in other markets such as North America.
      While this model is quite different from three it will replace (a midsize sedan/hatchback/wagon and two vans), it is expected to outsell all of them. Last year, Ford only moved 50,000 Mondeos, 24,000 S-Maxs, and 12,000 Galaxy. Numbers according to Autocar that are too small to make any profit.
      As for the U.S., the reason is likely due to Ford to possibly keep sedan buyers in the showroom. Last July, we reported that Ford was considering doing an "Outback competitor" with the Fusion name.
