According to some sources inside FoMoCo, Ford is planning on launching a Subaru Outback style wagon in 2003. 2003 will see an all new Taurus, at that time the Sable will no longer be a Taurus clone and will become the SUW. This wagon will replace the Mercury Mountaineer and will give the green light to the "Baby Navigator". Thoughts?

I saw a news blurb somewhere that they were thinking of making the SUWagon the Taurus, and were probably going to change the name of the 4-door sedan to the Falcon or Fairlane! Maybe they've changed their minds...

This is great news! Give people what they want: an all wheel drive station wagon, and stop de-truckifying Dead Link Removed our trucks. I like all the luxury touches like power everything and leather seats etc. but things like plastic bumpers, soft springs and low ground clearance do not belong on a truck.

Technically Velveeta isn't REALLY cheese... it's a cheese food...
The stuff that other cheeses eat... I guess.

I'm going to be first in line when the
"Baby Navigator" comes out. From what i
have heard it will have the 4.0L DOHC.
I woder how much $$$ it will be.

"98" Sport 4.0L SOHC

I agree Paul, I think its a great idea.

Fritz, the "Baby Navigator" will be priced in the high $30,000- low $40,000 range.
