Why not bring the Ford Falcon over from Australia to USA? It would serve as the perfect replacement for the Ranger and the Crown Victoria. The Ute version would make a great small pickup here in America. There has been great interest from both Ranger and Ranchero lovers alike. People want small pickups in America and there has not been an update to this line of vehicle recently. Ford would dominate over this market with the Ute option and it would not be as expensive or risky as a proposition for a new Ranger line since you are building on an existing, versatile platform.
It is also no secret that you are losing to the RWD platformed Caprice and Charger in the police market. Why not use the Falcon to replace the Crown Victoria as well. Police do not wish to retrain their officers on FWD and AWD platforms and they prefer the simplicity and reliability of a RWD platform. The Falcon would fill this need. I am sure there are many out there that would want to have a performance sedan (kids, ect.) as well since the Mustang is not four door and the Taurus is not RWD. If need be, I'm sure it would not be painful to many to have the Taurus replaced or integrated with the Falcon platform.
