    Full size Bronco mule?

    I believe this may be the case. I heard back from my closest guy late last night and he was just as surprised as we were. However, it appears this has gone from blue sky to steel incredibly fast. More interestingly... they are apparently comfortable investing heavily into the Bronco brand as a top-to-bottom competitor, not alternative, to Jeep. With FCA's current situation they want to be ready to pounce with any sign of trouble. Compact to Full-size with offroad chops in every model. They're investing in this "just as much as they are in Lincoln" as a "pillar of our company." If you weren't already, it's time to get excited.

    Forget any concerns you have of it looking bland. I think it looks like nothing else on the road today (not even a wrangler). It's gonna be badass. You're going to love it, both enthusiast and casual customer.

    The Japanese products have blind loyalty following even if/when they're not as good as the competition.

    Re-Aquired Vehicle Program

    When someone comes to a forum for the sole purpose of venting their frustration and declaring they'll never buy another Ford that's trolling. If you had come here and said hey I'm having real problems with this buyback and gave details and/or asked for advice you would have been received with open arms and sympathy. It's all in the presentation.

    Ford Drops 325HP Fusion Sport

    Hi all. In case it has not already been mentioned, just a hint/FYI for those looking for very particular features in a new Fusion and are not willing to settle for close enough: If you have the time to wait, why not factory order what you want? In this way, you get exactly what you want, the options you want, no equipment you don't want, in the color you want, etc, etc (within the limits of the Order Guide, of course). Your new car will arrive at the Dealership, be cleaned and prepped and you will be the first non-Ford/Dealer employee to drive it. It hasn't been sitting on the lot for 6 months or more, hasn't been test driven by god knows who, etc. Dealers were originally limited in what they could order for Dealer stock, so many Dealers never caught up with their stock. So there are often not a lot of non-Hybrid Fusion choices out there. And yes, I understand there are those who don't care to factory order for all their own reasons and I respect their choices. And I realize not everyone can wait and they want/need a car right now. However, for those who can't find exactly what they want, can wait and/or did not know they could factory order (or were not told they could, perhaps because a Dealer hoped to clear out slow moving current stock), it is perfect. I have factory ordered every one of my cars since 1981. Hope this information helps and good luck.

    Ford's fight to remain an icon

    I sort of laugh when the so-called business experts are trying to claim that a Ford-VW or Ford-GM merger will happen soon because of the whole FCA-Renault deal. Ford will likely form joint ventures like they are with VW or possibly Rivian in the future, but merge away this company? I don't see that happening anytime soon. The family seems so proud, involved and has enough control they'd almost go down with the ship before they sold it off and lost control. It truly is our last original US automaker that has never merged away or went bankrupt. You've got to give them a lot of credit for preserving Henry's legacy.

    2020 Escape starts at $25,980

    horsepower and torque are whats important....if Chevies 2.7 4 cylinder had 400 horsepower no one would be saying anything....( adnd sidebar, Fords 2.7 is so superior to that engine its embarrassing...and that's NOT because it has 6 cylinders ) Case in point...initial backlash towards Ford Eco boost 3.5 in comparison to the 8....its performance silenced the critics.

    How have times changed? The 2019 Ranger’s 2.3L four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, producing 310lb-ft of torque and 270hp, has nearly as much torque and is up 30hp on the first generation Ford Lightning pickup’s 5.8L V8.

    Ford Drops 325HP Fusion Sport

    Ford bosses were eager to boost stock price, so they said "cars are dead" to please Wall St. Meanwhile Asian makes "have no plans" to cancel cars. The late Sergio M at FCA started the domino effect when killed Dart/200 and acted like "if you are too cheap to buy a truck, we don't want your business". Sure, can say "sour grapes" to car business, but parking a 4 -door pickup [which Ford expect people to sign their life savings away] in the city, where many young adults live, is a b^^ch. Also, ride share drivers are getting business in Asian cars. I take back saying that "maybe it was a good idea" to drop cars, not anymore.

    My sources say continuing talk about Bronco delays is utter BS, no delays in project since begun in 2016, this has all been about other people’s assumptions and expectations. Handover of Bronco to Nth America is coming due and will note the final stages of the project - people will be amazed when they see it the 60s styling elements really work.

    Except they've extended it to 2023 according to a Ford zone rep. I don't understand why people think something is "doing well" just because it has good sales numbers. There is no way Ford is making money on Fusions right now. GM was #1 in sales but losing billions per year before bankruptcy. Ford was in nearly the same boat. Sales without profit is a failure unless you're Tesla.

    I don't even want to click the link. Musk: Tesla pickup truck will be better than F150 and cost less than $50,000* *The "less than 50K" model will be available 3 years after introduction only if we're forced to offer one, and it'll be priced at $49,999.99

    100% I'm not the target customer for an Escape. Boring and practical are what sells the volume in the market.
