oh wow, make sure you post back what you think, i've didn't know these were out yet.

it's the same engine as the focus/mondeo but tuned for more torque i think in low gears.

they do look really smart

being a modern ford, they will be good to drive if richard parry jones had anything to do with it (although he is recently retired).

was rather nice

drives very well, despite being a bit top heavy they do go round corners quite well

plenty of go as well

gets a gus star rating of 4/5

I don't think they look that good tbh, mind you they will probably grow on me. Be interested to know what they like though

Had a shot of one at work yesterday, 2ltr diesel, was quite good, torquey, nice driving position, couldn't comment on its off road ability, but it was a nice drive for sure.
Interior is quality and personally, i think they look superb.

They are decent motors, good all rounder. Easy to drive.

Typical modern Ford. Great inside, good spec and good handling for a big 'ol car.

Would make a decent tow vehicle

I think they are £175 a year for tax too....awesome for a 4x4

Chelsea tractor for the poor, why do we need cars like this?

They should be getting smaller/lighter and more economical not the opposite!

Oh God, please don't.

It looks distinctly non-Fordish, closely resembles it's VW, Audi and Seat competitors...I wonder how much Ford is actually under the plastics?
