Cut to giant SUV driving through something that looks like a modern Tron interpretation.  Booming voiceover begins:

When a cross-over gets 24 MPG and has room for seven, suddenly, everything looks a litte different

Two problems:

1) 24 MPG isn’t that good.

2) How does this car, that as  far as I can tell has no unique features (and is ugly as sin), change the world?  Do the guys at Ford really have an answer to that?  Or are they just saying stuff because it sounds dramatic?  

Surely there was something they could say about this SUV other than “it gets mediocre gas milage and has seven seats”.  And if that’s really all there is to say, why the heck did they spend millions of dollars to design and build these things.

Video is here in case you like watching train wrecks.
