What Has Your Week Been Like?
SEP
16

How’s your week been? And ours, you ask? Well, greetings from Germany! Yup, theFordStory.com has had an international flavor this week! We’ve been at the 64th Frankfurt Motor Show, where the big news from Ford has been new performance cars, new concepts, and a new EcoBoost™ engine. Meanwhile, back here in the U.S., you have kept us entertained in our rare moments of downtime by sharing Your Ford Stories and great Ideas. Keep them coming, because we are about to board a plane that’s homeward bound, and we look forward to new stories and ideas to read when we land!

And now, a peek at the week that was on theFordStory.com…

Drop Down Tailgate
When loading heavy stuff it’s hard with the tailgate in the way, so my idea is to be able to just drop the tailgate down instead of opening it outwards. Read more…

Ford Focus ST-R Racecar Availability to Begin in North America

Ashley I've had such a bad week! I've just found out that I'm turning in my 2009 Mercury Mariner for a 2011 Ford Escape. I can't believe I'm going a step down! and the Ford doesn't even have a navigation system. I'm so upset, I've cried all night :( Why did Mercury have to stop?

Brad Krekelberg Hey Ford. I read that 48% of Chevy Cruze Eco buyers chose the SIX speed manual. Don't you want a piece of that action? You should offer a six-speed in the Focus. And I'll bet you could match the Cruze's 42 mpg with the 1.6L EcoBoost. Oh, and one more thing. The Cruze will have a diesel soon. Kick their butts like I know you can!

Alisa We agree with the new Ford commercial. We bought two Fords, F150 and Explorer, because the company did not take bailout money.
