I hear it's coming out in less than 2 months. I really need a new vehicle
now, but will make do for a short while longer only if some needed features
on a mid-size "American" SUV become available.
Now that fuel prices are much higher than 4 years ago, will there be a
5-speed manual tranny available for its V-6 engine? How about a transfer
case having a low gear? Will that white background instrument cluster be
replaced with a nicer cluster? And will there be a better grade of leather
for the seats?

The changes are mostly cosmetic. The 2.0L Zetec 4-cylinder has been
replaced with a 153hp 2.3L. Same engine now used in the Focus and I think
related to the 2.3L in the Mazda6. The 4WD is now fully automatic. There
is a new dash, although the pictures still show white gauges.
