Maybe Ford just needed the dues. Whatever the reason, Ford's decided to sell off their Arizona Proving Ground testing facility to "The New Chrsyler." The pentastar brand recently bought the facility for $34.9 million and will spend around another $10 million in upgrades to the facility, including a new 70-foot-high test grade along with other new test surfaces. The test facility is expected to open in the second quarter of 2008 as a 24-hour-a-day, seven-day a week facility. Sounds like fun, when do we get the first spy shots from nearby?
