Good job, Ford!

This is a very nice car, inside and out. Excellent exterior styling, very close to 'perfect' interior. Trim on the console sides shouldn't be plastic. Ride quality is superb... firm but not harsh. Plenty of power, and very smooth through the gears. After 1000 miles, highway fuel economy is well below estimates (not typical for me).
Nicely defined space for the driver, very comfortable seats. Huge trunk. Beautiful front end.
Push button start location is fine if you have that option, but awkward if using a key. Move the shift paddles off the wheel, or lose them altogether on the non-SHO models. Fit/finish is good overall, but still a few minor issues that should've been caught long before I pointed them out.
