It would certainly make the argument for an Escape a lot easier than a Fusion.

What? What happened?

Amazing and even Toyota has admitted that it expects more Camry sales to transfer to RAV4

Toyota must be rubbing their hands with glee....

 

I can't wait to see GM get back to it and produce as many Equinox as possible, I think there a lot of sales depth still to be

realized with that better sized product.... I hope Ford follows suit and makes  the next Escape bigger / longer wheelbase like a CX-7

 

We've already seen next-gen Escape mules that have been stretched a few inches both in length and width.

The CX-7 doesn't even exist anymore; and hasn't for about 5 years.

I think he was just using it as a reference.

Job security was the union’s biggest demand during contract talks. Unifor had demanded the plant be named -- in writing -- the lead producer of the Equinox. That means if GM needs more of the compact crossover, CAMI would be first to get the additional work, but if sales slowed, production would be scaled back first at a pair of plants that also produce the Equinox in Mexico.

 

Unifor Local 88 President Dan Borthwick told Automotive News Canada the new deal does not include such a letter pledging jobs will be maintained at the assembly plant. The contract also lacks promises of new product or new jobs, Borthwick said.

 

Instead, there is what the union considers stronger language surrounding job security. The union said that the contract, if ratified, would make it more costly for GM Canada to close the plant -- about $290 million vs. $190 million in the previous contract.

 

“It’s more of a penalty for the employer to close the plant now. It’s going to cost them $100 million more,” Unifor Local 88 President Dan Borthwick said.

So the Union had the workers go on strike for a month and got them nothing. (100million for GM/Ford is nothing - it would be about ~1.1% of the profit from 2016)

The signing bonus is basically their lost wages.

Four factories globally. CAMI, San Luis Potosí, Ramos Arizpe, and Wuhan. The last is a GM-SAIC plant that makes Equinox for the China domestic market.

3 for this market seems ridiculous.
