Default Commercial

Watching Sunday Morning Countdown this morning before work, and a Mercury Grand Marquis commercial! Yeah never seen one for that car before, but they said it was "perfect for road trips by car & driver" yadda yadda yadda, only V8 in it'* class.... Guess they didn't get the Memo about the GXP?

Not the same class. The Grand Marquis is just a Crown Vic. It'* a rear-wheel drive FULL size car, touring/luxury.

''class'' can mean alot of things...
when a commercial says a car is in a class of its own.... then goes onto "best in class'' You might want put the 2 together...

Majority of the times as well they will have fine print going across the bottom stating in the manufacturers class it has the biggest motor.

Full size "Luxury" is not the same as Full SIze "Sport". Also FWD vs RWD

Kinda like statistics, the data can be manipulated to say what you want...

I've seen the same commercial. The price on them things is amazing!! If I needed a new car, 22K for a Grand Marquis would be looking kind of appealing. (I love full sized cars. Make them foreign jobs nervous)
