I don't think it's a concept, I think it's actually the up coming Modeo, was released at the Paris Motorshow.

after showing that to a friends old man (who works for ford in broady) He can assure you thats not what it looks like.

Theres 3 new models comin out in 2008(yes that long) one of which is the orion and another is the "Leah", but i already cant member the 3rd.

But 2008!!! it better be f**k awesome as they will have lost so much time to the VE

i love the look of that new mondeo, and im pretty sure that the new falcon would probably carry some elements of it, but i dont think thats really the look ford would be chasin for the falcon. the mondeo is a smaller car, and often what looks good on one size car doesnt transfer to a larger or smaller car.

I think we all are going to hope it will come out good or else their market will be a sham.

Ford will not want a repeat of the AU's. So I think the next falcon will surely be a good looker

and that modeo doesn't look to bad at all

is it too early for ford to have prototypes of the orion running about. the other night i drove past a heavily disguised something, only reason it caught my eye was that it had bf xr6 alloys on it.

Why cant car manufacturers make cars like they used to??

All these new models jus look plactic. My brothers got matchbox cars that look tougher than these.

Bring back the early X Series, back when cars were cars and metal.

Or am i the only one that thinks this way? lol

i was having a similar conversation with a panel beater the other day. the ba's are pretty expensive panel wise compared to the au's anyway.
he said used to be good when they were all metal, just sand them back bog them up and paint over them lol.

i work at ford mackay and our foreman was say the orion is ment to be front wheel drive V6 the same as the couirer V6. Apparently the brand Zf who make the new 6 speed autos also make suspension as well and the orion will be getting ZF suspsions apparently. If this does happen this is a sad sad day for the I6 and V8
