    Whatever that is, it's definitely not Ford.

    2020MY Production Schedule

    In a recent conference call after the Q4 report at the Brazilian foundry Tupy the CEO is talking about the recent start of the Cummins production for RAM but then he says that a new volumeproduction will start this May of a petrolengine with a block in CGI for Pickups Is this the added production of the Nano-V6 EcoBoost engine with a displacement of 2.7 and 3 liters he is talking about or can it be some new production? We know this engine will come in the 2020 MY of several models like Explorer and Lincoln Aviator but can we consider these mentioned as Pickups? Is it migrating to the Ranger? Is it just a production for the Explorer and Aviator with JOB #1 date 05/06/19 , the MKZ with JOB #1 date 08/05/19 ? Conference call http://ri.tupy.com.br/default_en.asp?idioma=1&conta=44

    Where Is The IUAW?

    You show me any politician who cares about the working class and I'll show you some beautiful oceanfront property in Nebraska.

    Window Sticker Lookup

    Hi, I just bought a Focus ST and have been trying to get the window sticker for about a week now. Can somebody try to see if they can get the window sticker for me? It would mean a lot. 1FADP3L91EL451216 Thank you!
  9. The Board of Directors has the final say when hiring a CFO.
  10. So the real question is will it have a GT version?
  11. I think he definitely was and when Mulally left he went right back to the old ways.
  12. I agree with this, although, Fields may have been part of the 'old network'.
  13. Agree-within reason. My fear is that Hackett will stack the deck with like minded Silicon Valley cronies. We thought big Al had righted the ship but apparently he did not-for sure as Fields was his choice right? Then again, perhaps Fields had the deck stacked against him as the old network refused to change their ways once Al was gone. Opinions?
  14. You are employed at one of ~3000 Ford dealerships in the United States. What makes you think that the other ~2999 dealers aren’t selling Expeditions? Take a look at the sales numbers...

    Cadillac unveils new CT5 - the CTS replacement

    That started this whole problem-the CTS was doing "well" when it was the entry level product for Caddy (at least in the US) but with the ATS-which completely missed the mark and the CTS being pushed up market, both cars lost their shirts with their core buyers in the US.
  16. Hmmm... I'd like to know where all these Expeditions are being sold. We did well with the new Expedition up until 4-5 months ago and since then Expedition interest and sales have dropped off a cliff. We were advertising (2) 2018 Expedition Limited 4WD's at invoice less rebates and ended up selling them to other Dealers at below invoice just to get rid of them and off our floorplan. We now have (2) 2019's in stock... a Black Expedition Stealth and a Blue Platinum and we're not buying any more until we sell one of the stock units.

    Flat Rock to build BEV

    Ford is limiting production of the Escape SE claiming that they're losing money on the SE's because of all the standard equipment additions. It'll be interesting to see what the initial pricing will be when they introduce the new 2020MY Escape. Traditionally they raise prices at the end of the model year in order to minimize the price increase on the new model. Cutting production and the 3rd shift would make one speculate that they're anticipated lower industry sales and/or a recession and will try to meet their profit objective with higher prices on lower production and sales. Further adventures to follow.

    Vehicles owners keep 15+ years

    Thank you!
  19. Yesterday
  20. I think that is Mr. Hackett's strategy.
  21. Ford and RAM came out with a Good rating in the latest crash tests where they hit straight on in the fender (sorry, forget the official term). Toyota and Chevy did bad in it. Already saw it on the TV news stations this afternoon.

    Flat Rock to build BEV

    Well that affects a line here in my department, they're losing their third shift too and for whatever it's worth the local union doesn't believe it's coming back any time soon based on what the company is telling them.
  23. The headlights in my wife's 2018 Edge are hardly adequate. Makes me wonder if they are just improperly aimed.

    Flat Rock to build BEV

    But I’m sure they’re anticipating more volume with the new vehicles plus they could get overflow from Mexico.
  25. Surprising that Consumer Reports recommended 2019 Toyota Tundra in the first place! The only things going for it are excellent reliability and that it's built in Texas.

  27. All I can say is WOW!
