Ford is developing a new car to battle the upcoming Chrysler Pacifica (hybrid wagon/SUV). There is a spy shot in the latest AutoWeek, 2/18/02 issue. That car will use the V70 chassis. So, I guess Ford finally saw the light and will use a Volvo platform!<P>Yannis<P>

That's interesting. That chassis is scaleable, and plays home to the 60,70,80 and now 90 series of Volvos. I wonder how different the Ford will be from the XC90.

Kind of like a bigger Ford Mondeo Estate.<P>Yannis<P><P>
