I just saw a Ford commercial, and it appears that Ford is bringing the Taurus back. I just caught a quick glimpse of it, but it looked just like the Fusion to me. There may be subtle differences but it pretty much looked like the Fusion w/the high roof line of the Ford 500. Are they doing away w/the Fusion or the 500? That may be the new car Ford is using in the future for the COT marque.
I do know it is going to be called the Taurus because it said on the screen at the end the all new Ford Taurus.
Interesting....

I heard they were replacing the 500 with the Taurus nameplate, same car, different name. Ford believes that slumping sales were caused by the name change to the 500 and some dumb marketing person actually believes that by renaming the 500 the Taurus sales will increase.

I kinda liked the name "500". It was like the concept car the "Forty".. Ever see it? It was really cool.
