  1. Wonder what DCT Focuses are now worth in this 2022 "sellers market"?
  2. The days of hoping, praying and wishing for a Ford "Camry/Accord killer" are over. Those who still want a true car, get imports, due to better and resale. DCT repairs and relying on "fleet sales" killed Ford car resale values forever. With all the SUV recalls, looks like they may lose that market, too.
  3. By the time it appears, it will be 2059. Given how long it took for a full sized Jeep SUV to come out. 😉 Allpar fans are still whining about the Dart/200. They still claim "a full line up" of Dodges and Chrysler cars are coming from [now] Peugeot, after years of expecting new Dodges from Alfa-Romeo. Expecting "coupes, sedans, convertibles and wagons!" If they took an old Yugo, and put a Dodge badge on it, they'd be happy, at this point.

    2022 Ford Maverick Pickup thread

    Ford lost a lot of good will with car buyers, with DCT Focus, and Fusion suffered. But also, suburbanites said "cars are out of style and too small". Can't sell a "tiny car" [even if a mid size] to a Mom/Dad who have tons of "stuff" to haul for the kids.

    2022 Ford Maverick Pickup thread

    to those complaining still about "why can't Ford still sell Fusion sedans"? Well, just go to another brand. Can still get a Malibu, for now. Or, get a Maverick, with a bed cover, and "voila!" a sedan!

    2022 Ford Maverick Pickup thread

    When 1970 Maverick was new, 1930 was closer in time, then 1970 is to 2021!

    2022 Ford Maverick Pickup thread

    Hardly anyone under 40 remembers the 1970-77 Maverick, so will be no association with 1970's cars. To Millennials, the 70's may as well be the 1930's, far far in the past.
  8. Agree, Chrysler hasn't been a "premium brand" since the K-car days. I bet name will be gone by 2028. Opel/Vauxhall are now just badges on French cars, nothing GM anymore. Don't expect "the return of Opel to US", ever. And 'FCA' is defunct. Funny how Chrysler/Mopar/Dodge fanbois love using the term, but then complain about Fiat.

    Dodge Hornet Rumor

    Oh, and how long will Mopar car guys keep using "FCA" term (since merger is done)? They complain about Fiat products, but gleefully say "FCA" as if the 'F' means "fun". LOL Hard to say Stellantis quick, though. 😉

    Dodge Hornet Rumor

    Over at Allpar, they're still expecting "a new car line up from PSA", to replace Dart, 200, etc. And, some claim "Opels will be sold as Dodges". Umm, it's been 6 years since Sergio killed off Dart/200. They are not coming back. Any new Dodge/Chrysler will be a CUV, no "new Intrepid/Concorde/Stratus/LeBaron" cars.

    2022 Ford Maverick Pickup thread

    Here is your modern day "Ford compact sedan", folks. Many will get bed covers, so that will be its 'trunk'.

    '21 May Sales

    Ford killed the Focus name in US, with poor DCT quality, thus it is same as Pinto in buyers minds. So, dream on for any 'return of Focus ST/RS' or imports from Spain. But, what about that new Fusion wagon "Outback competitor"?

    2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Revealed

    "Who cares?" Paying customers who want new product.
  14. If they do, it will be a 4 door CUV. Since that is what sells to new car buyers. Example; Mustang Mach E.
  15. "...if FCA had a do-over, they would have never launched Fiat as a standalone brand in the US..." Then, what would 'F' in FCA mean? FCA is used over and over to mean Mopar and will most likely stick around, like DSM for Mitsubishi cars. Now the company stock market name is STLA.
