Lightbulb Ford fusion interesting grill

One day I have noticed on the road grill on ford fusion. Take a look how the grill is aerodynamically design. Ford has done pretty good job.

It looks nice, but with a drag cd of .34 it's really not too great.

i think its cuz its like window blinds, they look flat but the opening is on the bottom and it acts liek a scoop when air is comming over the car.

I noticed that too. They look great, and seem to have fairly narrow slits. It seems lately Ford has really stepped up their game!
