Spy Photos: More on the 2008 Ford Five Hundred Freshening

This image was lost some time after publication.

We'd imagine if you asked Ford design chief Peter Horbury, he'd say the current Ford Five Hundred is a bit light on Dave. Dave, if you'll recall, is Horbury's mythical, open-hearted American chap, and inspiration for the toothy grillework on the Fusion and new Edge crossover. Of course, as it is now, the Five Hundred looks more of a Steve or a Jeff, with a mug that's more protective, gives less away and projects a combination of wry self-satisfaction, disinterest and a hint of malice. Then again, we may just be hanging around design guys way too much.
