    Actually, one does if it’s an ecoboost.

    VW Will Share MEB Platform with Ford

    VW will have two EV platforms. MEB is for less expensive, more mainstream vehicles. The other one debuts on the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT(sedan). Perhaps Ford will use MEB for less expensive EVs and 'E1' for the Mach E, Lincoln CUV, and (presumably) fullsize sedans for both brands.

    Preordered because dealer says order bank not yet accepting Beyond Blue interiors. So our silver Reserve II with BB order waits.

    Many who think that way live in Mommy’s base-ment.

    Depends on how much is really shared between both companies.

    Also gives increased platforms to spread costs around allowing them to be more profitable. It allows Ford to have more BEVs in a market that is still in its infancy and won't be affordable for the vast majority of buyers (of that particular type of car) Ford can make $$$ on a BEV F-150 far more easier then it could a Fusion or Focus sized product, just due to the pricing of those products. The Model E is going to be over 40-50K and I'm assuming will be profitable.

    Correct, VW has an EV plant in North America where it will build EVs for itself and now presumably Ford. It’s perfect for Ford as the buy into EV development and production becomes much less, a good move while technology evolves quickly.

    Or might VW build Fords? I've read elsewhere that VW are considering building EV's at its Chattanooga plant, so perhaps adding Ford to that mix might make for a stronger business case? For Ford, it would represent added volume without added plant investment.

    And yet they continued to stuff this turd of a transmission into what I think could have been a fantastic car, for another 5 years after all the problems began to surface.

    Ford Ranger IIHS crash test

    I don't think the IIHS is useless. I might not always agree with their shifting of goalposts, but they have helped push the industry into building safer vehicles. The moderate and small overlap tests are a good test that probably have more real life relevance compared to the old just crash it into a wall test. I also like that they test roof strength because on trucks and SUVs rollover is still a concern. Anyhow it was nice to see that the Ranger has done well in these tests.
