the Fusion took a lot from Evos concept, now a semi-unmasked test mule is showing very very similar nose on the Mustang.

think ford is going for 'corporate styling' on a car that used to look kinda unique in the lineup, or think its a fake to throw off the competition?

Re: Evos/Fusion/Mustang?

Thanks for the share. it is neat to see, but I don't feel it should be done. It DOES look like that would be close to the real thing, and not to throw people off, just based on spy images of other vehicles....

Even though I like the new styling. It is lazy on ford's part. Take one SINGLE style, have a box of constraints for each platform, and just stretch the look to fit the size. I like heritage in design, but it doesn't need to be the same across a whole brand. It is simply lazy and probably another way to save money.

It is to build brand identity. Have you noticed how close Fairlanes and Galaxies look? Same concept

Re: Evos/Fusion/Mustang?

And now that it's been introduced, it looks just like a Fusion. No thanks, Ford...
