    It won't ever happen, since Ford is currently fully committed to bringing us amazing cars like the current generation (lolz) Focus and the Taurus.

    If they do what pontiac did and Call it a Mercury old ass name to feed some sense of false idealism then no.

    If they call it a ford Falcon and dont molest ANY of it, no cosmetic changes, power/driveline changes. then yea.

    I think most people are just glad it got here.

    Edit: And that it wasn't completely neutered in the process.

    All it has is a different fascia and hood too. Not exactly earth-shattering changes and it looks terrific either way.

    It's not engineered for left-hand drive. The six cylinder engines will not pass US emissions without a big investment. Ford AU's manufacturing cannot provide a suitable volume for sale outside of AU.

    Ford US is completely broke too, no money to give Ford AU which is going broke. Things are not rosy for Ford worldwide outside of Europe.
