Seems like it's going to fit in where the defunct Freestar and Windstar left off. Minivans sell, and so do crossovers, and this seems to be in between the two.
Just think...if you're in the market for a minivan, or a family vehicle. You have to choose between the Fugly chevy "sport-vans", the Dodge Caravan that'll last a whole thousand miles before breaking down, a few import minivans, and this.
making a replica of a scion or element, in an economy that is thriving for imports is not smart. even if it looked better it still would be hard to sell over the competition.
im not a ford hater just frustrated at things like this.
have ya all seen the new escape???? that looks surprisingly good, never liked it before but i do now. that design combined with some sort of flex would have been way better than what they came out with.
The more I think about it, the more I think there might actually be a market for this. I certainly see enough PT Cruisers, Mini's, and Scions around. Somebody's got to like that style enough to buy 'em. Personally I think they're all goofy little clown cars that belong in the circus, but hey, if Ford can sell some of these things, more power to 'em. More comic relief for me when I see one on the road!
