Well, after all this time, it looks like it's finally going to happen. For so long, we could only gaze longingly over to Europe, where the Ford Focus zipped about on a chassis shared with Mazda, and handling that was ... well, European. While we got an economy car that did its job, but was simply not as good as it could be.
And now the news: Ford says it is cutting truck production, increasing crossover production, building the Fiesta for worldwide sales, and finally -- finally! -- producing a version of the European Focus for sales in North America. I only hope it's not a case of too little, too late.
