    This review really hits the mark for me. I've been attracted enough to go into Ford showrooms when I've purchased new cars twice in the past 4 years. But I've walked away from Ford dealers twice solely because of legroom (once each time for Taurus, Fusion). I'm no giant: I weigh 180lbs, 6 feet tall, not unlike many others. I find great leg room in Hyundai, BMW, Mercedes. But in Ford, Honda,etc., it's atrocious. These designs are so successfully focused on the front grille and the instrument stack, yet fail cuz the cars feel like sardine cans. I wish it had an option to increase legroom, which matters much more to me than MyFord Touch. Tech bling rapidly ages into so yesterday; solid build, fit & finish, and comfort gets my $$$'s.

    Considering that is only rated at 17 city and 25 hwy, 20 isn't too bad for something that is over 2 tons. I liked the open and roomy cabin on the 500 and have always felt claustrophobic in the Taurus. Ford squandered a lot of room in the redesign.

    You guys are all haters. This car is great. Sure it needs a few things like better colors for the interior and really nice chrome wheels for the SHO, and more room for a car that has it, but is not using it, but this car is awesome. The SHO I have gets near 29 mpg with 365 hp and AWD. The technology is great and it looks great. Looks like its on steroids. Need more colors to choose from than the current colors on the exterior. Where is Royal blue or dark blue with dark browns and beiges and tans in the interior? I drove a Limited for a rental before I bought the SHO and it was silver with tan and beige interior, which did not match for me, and ALL the interiors come with a grey dashboard. What? Need more dark brown dashes. B+

    Again, wide center consoles, front buckets. Why not have a front bench and a shifter on the column. All that other jazz just wastes space. My wife's 2012 Charger is roomier and better looking. Also, wish it had a bench/column shift option.

    ask yourself this.. how can someone be protected by setting in the center of the front bench seat? in a age of technology, where would you put your Ipod/Cell phone with no Center storage unit? How would you ajust your seat configuration without disrupting your front passengers seating position with a Benchseat?

    Anyway this car just look terible... Wheels look sooooo small for the car

    Absolutely ridiculous Ford of North America foists that hideous lump of dung on us while the Australians have their sensational Falcon.

    "20 mpg over an entire day and more than 250 miles of driving"

    Ford has no bragging rights here that's for sure. I'm beting the the 2.0 Ecoboost won't be much better because of AWD and the mass it has to hawl around. Ask those whom thought the Ecoboost Ford F150 would give them better MPG's than the 5.0 V8. In real life driving they are neck and neck in the MPG dept.
