    What about the new 4th generation Focus range? Designed in Australia too. We had access to a ST-Line recently and it was pretty big step up from the previous generation. The wagon, in particular, seems like pretty good value for money.

    So this is fantastic. All your suggests were on my short list so that’s something.

    Greatly appreciated.

    Anything EV??

    Even an interview / podcast with a Ford guru on this subject. Being that there forecast includes it and they Just tipped USD $500m into Rivian it's definately coming.

    Other than that Endura, Ranger 2.0TT with 10 speed. Epic Coast to Coast run in a Mustang GT

    Endura is an interesting product which is let down by some key points.

    1) Price. Its about 6 - 7k too dear at RRP (which is what most people look at when browsing these days as Ford banned dealers advertising new / demo stock on carsales).
    2) Its under powered, we should have had 2 engines, the single turbo Ecoblue for the base RWD model and the bi turbo Eco Blue for the AWD ST line / Titanium.
    3) No 7 seat option.
    4) Limited future here. Given its an older product that has been dropped in the UK how long will we get it for?

    Its a lost sheep in the market. I have driven one and aside from its lack of punch it was a nice vehicle at 6 - 7k cheaper which is what demos seem to be advertised for.... Im hoping it continues to be a flop so I can pick one up mid next year for 20k under rrp and replace the cooks Mondeo Titanium.

    As for Ian's question im holding out for reviews on the 2 new baby ST's coming.

    100% agree on the comments regarding Endura. I was genuinely excited to hear it coming here but when the pricing was announced it dropped off the radar. The engine choices as well need to be revised. We will keep the Jeep a little longer and see what the market brings.
