No wonder Ford had to lay off so many workers.

I just don't get what these design engineers are thinking when they come out with something like this. It just looks out of proportion and the lines are horrible. Grandpa for days...

The interior looked nice and all, and I can understand them wanting more cargo room, longer wheelbase, etc., but those body details are just lame.

U G L Y, you don't need no alibi...

I have seen a dash like that before....on my father's '80's era Lincoln Town Car.

Perhaps Ford designers were trying to get on the retro band wagon. They should have realized, however, that some things are better left in the '80's.....

WOW!! I'm at a LOSS FOR WORDS! That is ONE....UGLY....MOTHERF$UCKER!

Looks like a cheap ass pimp my ride wannabe 94 Ford Explorer.
-Give the Q56 it's headlights back
-Give Hundai their taillights back
-Give the Range Rover it's interior back
-Give my grandma's 73 Chrysler Labaron guage cluster back
-Don't try to copy the Armada front corner bumpers and hood line....JUST STOP IT, PERIOD! :thumbdown

That **** is tired and should be put to rest asap. I feel sorry for Ford, the Q56, Lexus and even the new funky Escalade will murder them in the luxury SUV market. Only hope Ford has is to make up sales numbers with the new Range Rovers.

Somebody is going to lose their job

Unbelievable. With the problems that Ford is having they come out with this?????? Whoever signed off on this from engineers to whoever gave the final ok to build should be fired. You couldnt GIVE me one of these........

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? Maybe they thought baby boomers miss not having flash-chromed plastic trim edging? THAT is the "Aztec" of instrument panels.

Looks like Ford had many, many parts left over from the period.....

dear lord!! WHAT IS THAT!?!? :eek: how can an engineer from this decade come up with something like this?? when looking the pics i wasnt laughing, i was making faces of horror. if someone buys this SUV will be for the exterior look and not the interior thats for sure... oh my god ford what are you doing, stock is already @ $7, but with this 1970 SUV, stock sure as hell will drop. :D

Lay off people? They should just close up shop.

As mentioned previously that's one of the most horrific interior designs I've seen in a very long time. Atleast GM realized they needed to make significant changes to their interior.

Ford has a better idea...

When are they gonna use it!? They are making the same mistakes over and over. When are they going to ask folks what they want insted of building BS that they think folks want? This is worst than their "Luxury Pic-Up"! They should call it a "Now-N-Later" instead of the Navigator!

Old pics, junky truck. They went backwards, not forwards with the styling. Wonder what they were thinking. :rolleyes:
