And Toyota is in a total tailspin, I agree. People dont realize it, but theyre in no shape to be a world leading car company.

Well being a big car company is hard. Making a major design change is a HUGE risk. I mean the amount of time and money involved is insane. If it's a flop they loose a TON of money.

They can't go crazy when something is doing okay for them. You gotta take risks to stay ahead, but at the same time you can't do anything too drastic. The gen 3 fusion was a risk that definitely has paid off.

I kinda hope the Taurus doesnt have the Aston grille. I dont think it looks good on the Fiesta.
No, not good on the Fiesta. It works for the Fusion and Focus, though.

True that the gen 5 was the flagship, but with how well the new Fusion has been selling and the accolades it's received, that could very well change.
