In my opinion, the best cars Ford ever built took place in the 2000s. The 2005-2009 GTs, the remake of the Ford GT super car, best diesel trucks on the road, and with the exception of the 2013 GT500's power plant. Ever since, it's been deterioration. The cars look worse (but I like the Taurus for a sedan), many have become ridiculously overpriced (Raptor), and Ford just overall could have done a better job. Why not shoot for something new like a Corvette competitor? A very lightweight, fuel efficient, powerful, aerodynamic two seater in the 40-70k range? I see Corvettes everywhere with no competition Ford could capitalize on since GM is forever stuck in the V8 only and high price mentality with the Vettes. Why not take retro to the old GT500 Eleanor we all loved? Why make Fustang... granted the IRS and ecoboost are desirable, the body styling is NOT. I'll be sticking to my 2007 GT.
