    Ford Q2 2020 financials

    In some ways, it seems more logical to start with a BEV skateboard chassis and modify it to HEV and PHEV.

    Ford Q2 2020 financials

    Tesla sold 367500 units out of one factory last year. From what I understand, BEVs are easier to build then regular cars and I guess you can produce more from thr same footprint? maybe that is Ford’s thinking is that it can shrink more plants, but still build the same amount of product or more.

    Whats this...?

    Five bolt wheels point to something C2 based...if it was based on Ranger chassis, it would have six....

  10. I noticed that the other day as well. Not sure why it's still there, as the vehicle isn't even in production at all anymore regardless of model year. My guess is since they still have them at dealers, they still need it on the site, and they probably just haven't flipped it to "off". Some of the web guys will chime in I'm sure, but they probably have it all built into a "2019"....."program" if you will (all 2019 things bunched together), and since it'll be removed altogether soon, maybe they just haven't bothered to update it.
  11. I was perusing the Ford web site via the Ford iPhone app a few minutes ago and noticed it is (supposedly) still possible, in August 2020, to “build and price” a 2019 Ford Flex, selecting my preferred exterior color as well as opting for roof rack side rails and all-weather floor mats, etc. Of course, I have no doubt that it is not truly possible now to do any such thing (except perhaps as a purely academic exercise), but I was surprised to see that such a thing remains on Ford’s web site (or at least the Ford app). Is there some rational reason why such a thing would have been left—intentionally—on the web site and not removed a year ago? If so, it escapes me.... I’m interested in hearing from industry insiders about this. Thanks.
  12. And now Ford is saying latest by September for build & price lol 🤦‍♂️ https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/threads/false-alarm-doh-bronco-build-and-price-configurator-live-by-september-at-the-latest.3374/

    if thats true, then its been the best kept secret at Ford, Hackett stripped the crap out of vehicle programs three years ago.

    How about a Lincoln sports car? A mid-engine monster that's a little cheaper and more affordable than a GT. That would be cool.

  18. I agree. I think that those "derivatives" won't be the Shelbys, etc. as some have surmised. I think that there will be a sedan version, and possibly a Lincoln sedan, too. To balance out CAFE, they will have some EV sedans.

    Ford Q2 2020 financials

    It's the efficiency experts running the numbers on what Ford really needs to build, that makes perfect sense if the recovery on most vehicles is poor or loss makers? OK try this, Ford does the unthinkable and closes FRAP and OAC, would the loss of either be a permanent loss in sales or just a temporary thing?
