This is a cool sedan, in my mind, an efficient and sporty family car from Ford. I think my wife and I have narrowed it down to this for our next vehicle (we'll keep the Outback for dirty driving duty-backroads, camping, winter). Probably get a mid-level spec, but not sure about the small Ecoboost motors, probably make it more fun on the windy roads.

So, of course when I find out there is a diecast model, I HAVE to get it!

It's finished in platinum white, with chrome and silver painted accents, plastic lenses for lights, rubber tires with authentic wheels...typical Greenlight.

Greenlight made this one in 1:43 scale for the World Premiere, got it from fordcollection.com. Russ said they'll be coming out in a few other colors this summer and fall. The overall quality is rather good and it came in a basic clear case with plastic bottom, but there were a few paint chips.

Wish it was 1/64. Seriously! I like the move Ford is making towards a decidedly Aston Martin feel in the front end for the Fusion & Taurus.

Yeah, I was hoping it'd be in 1:64...hard to play with 1:43 cars. haha

They're looking good and the new cars are supposed to drive just like their European counterparts. Ford has made big strides lately and I'm a fan once again. Just hard to part with that much money.

Proficiently executed typical of Greenlight, but a thoroughly un-compelling subject imho.

Transportation modules are one thing, but I wonder if they have any real cars in the development queue. It's been a while.

You gotta produce what sells, I'm sure Ford paid a good deal for this to be produced...as they have for several other new vehicles.

I like that a US Diecast company is making realistic everyday cars, they're more "real" than anything else because it's what I could go out and pay cash for (both the 1:64, 1:43 and 1:1).

Agree!

Indeed, And this one is well done too for a 1/43 I have their Jeeps and they have turn heads at my job (Below are some sample),.... Every day cars are okay, but in the same token I would like to see more of their talent toward Nostagic and Vintage too, but Authentic looking and not Toyist......Overall, you just can't beat GL nor M2 in my book!.....:thumbsup:

Wonder if they'll do a Mondeo for the European market.

I mean, just change a few tempos...and ta-da! You got yourself a Mondeo.
