  1. Yeah, Goose just didn’t do as well with the focus groups.....

    2019 Mustang GT

    This is a highly unusual situation with the PP2 option. It’s possible the dealership didn’t realize it could be delayed. Most are too lazy to check things like that and just assume the normal order time. Also there is no difference between a stock order and retail (sold) order except the retail order has a lower priority and should get built first (not counting parts holds or other delays).
  3. Bronco fans will be buying the real Bronco. This is a completely different vehicle made to appeal to different buyers and made to compete with Renegade, Juke and other highly stylized small utilities. You act like you’re the only one buying vehicles and Ford should only make what you like. Get over it.

    New Ford 7.0 L....?

    Probably less than those who know about the third pedal......

    2019 Mustang GT

    I don’t think they’ve said exactly which parts but that’s a good guess.

    Limited parts availability.

    2020 Jeep Gladiator Leaks

    Maybe for Renegade but certainly not for Compass or Cherokee.
  8. Am I biased or are 90% of those idiots driving RAMs?
  9. It’s not too much at all. It’s probably not enough. Tracking is done by a Ford employee in his spare time as a favor. It’s for members, not for someone who wants to just come here and get tracking and disappear.

    2020 Jeep Gladiator Leaks

    I agree Wranglers have the cool factor and so will Gladiator. I still don’t agree that young people buying Renegades and Compasses are buying them because Wranglers are cool because they don’t look anything like a Wrangler. I think they sell mostly on price. And yes I could be wrong.
  11. You’re right. They’ve never mentioned hybrid vehicles across the board, AVs and Transportation as a Service, Hybrid F150 and Mustang, Mach 1 BEV, Aviator/New Explorer/new cd6 platform. Platform consolidations with new hybrid capable platforms. Bronco and Baby Bronco. Nope. Not a peep. 🤷‍♂️

    Explorer Gear shift Release

    Hopefully that’s it but what they’re talking about is the switch to detect when the shifter is in park. That symptom doesn’t usually affect the ability to move the shifter. The service guy might be confused.
  13. Yet they made $1.6B with a 8.8% profit margin in 3Q.
  14. Go ask Apple what products they’ll be bringing out next year. They don’t even acknowledge a new iPhone is coming more than a few weeks ahead of launch, if that much. Screw these analysts who think they’re entitled to proprietary information that would benefit Ford’s competition. They were told exactly what they needed to know.

    2020 Jeep Gladiator Leaks

    Young attention seeking buyers don't typically have enough income to buy a $40K new vehicle. I think this will steal as many Wrangler sales as it does mid-sized truck sales from other mfrs.
