Actually I think they have a knock it out of the park home run with the MKZ. And for kicks and giggles while they were running the bases they kicked the ES350 squarely in the crotch then knocked the G35 into the dirt for good measure as well. I just wish I could show you all the pics and give you the details right now.
I got to sit in it and take a bajillion pictures of the car today. Ford made us promise to abide by an embargo until 12:01AM on 11/19 for this little sneak peak and chance to talk with the entire design and engineering team behind this car. It is an amazing car. You'll have to watch for my post going live exactly at 12:01Am, and shortly thereafter the pics will be in the 2010 MKZ on my flickrset for the MKZ page. Yes, I'm abiding by the embargo, I won't burn anyone that treats me this well.
Also...while there I confirmed that the 2010 Mustang Reveal party is taking place on 11/18 AND that car is going to be nothing short of amazing as well. I even wrangled out a ride with a pro-drifting driver in the 2010 GT. Now if I can figure out how to video it all as well as get some pics.
Oy the next week and half leading into the LA Auto Show is going to be fun! Thanks Ford.
