Pretty interesting. I’d guess that the political/environmental mindset there is largely on board with clean, electric cars, but the value proposition isn’t good enough to convince people to make a change.

I own a 2015 Taurus SHO, I like it but I never really have loved it. It’s quick and when tuned a lot more of a good time to drive, but it’s just too big and heavy, bloated and cramped.

I mean, it wasn’t my cup of tea, but it is kind of a shame to see the end of the Full-size Ford line in North America.

Wait, hold up. Those Chevy commercials told me they won the JD Power Most Reliable award. You mean to tell me those awards are worthless? What about those normal people and their important opinions?
