  1. At least on the surface, this looks like a good idea for GM. I'd like to see Ford do the same, but perhaps Ford believes that EVs becoming a significant part of the market is still late decade 20's, therefore they aren't ready to pull the trigger yet.
  2. Excellent summary statement of what is wrong with most car companies.

    Ford Nearly Completes Car Purge

    Where do you find the word "reaction" in my post? I wrote revelation.

    Ford Nearly Completes Car Purge

    If you were around for the history, you remember what happened... the Chrysler minivan was a revelation in the marketplace at the time it was introduced. Ford and GM were offering BOF "minivans" built on their small truck chassis, and Chrysler came in with their product built on the K car chassis. And the market went nuts for the Chrysler offering. All the other manufacturers scrambled to emulate the Chrysler approach (which actually originated at Ford with Hal Sperlich and Iacocca). The SUV craze really started with the Explorer, which succeeded the Bronco II. Ford hit the product characteristics perfectly, and the market stormed to the Explorer in incredible droves. Again, a revelation in the market, despite the fact that Jeep was there first. Bottom line, in both cases, people indeed wanted to move into these products. The market literally rushed to them.

    Hackett in for Long Haul

    Mullally wanted to kill Lincoln, Fields had to convince him it was worth saving. I'm not a Fields apologist (anything but), but he's the one that defended Lincoln when everything was on the table for cuts or elimination.

    Still waiting for the quote, Spock. It's obvious you can't produce it.

    Brilliant. And where does he say that "everyone should stop driving pickup trucks, delivery trucks, vans, minivans, semis and utilities so you can see"? Still waiting for the quote.

    Where exactly did he say what you're claiming? Please provide a quote. If not, then STHU and allow him to have an opinion different from yours. You seem to be the one that can't abide a position different from your own.
  9. Vince Burlapp posted a nice video from the LA show, in particular it does a good job of giving an idea of the quality of the interior materials:
  10. It still looks under tired to me, but again these are most likely not GT's. Plus, could use more offset on the wheels.
  11. You should really open your eyes first.

    Ford vs Ferrari trailer

    Please hang around, you're missed and arguing here might keep you out of arguments at home!
  13. Well, if Dave Pericak says it, I can probably believe it: https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/a29825740/the-ford-mustang-mach-e-is-not-built-for-sustained-track-performance/

    RAV 4 Prime Announcement

    I don't like to defend Toyota, but your info is out of date. Toyota unveiled quite an ambitious plan for BEV's earlier this year. Their 'plan' calls for sales of 1 million BEV's globally by 2025. They also plan to unveil a solid state battery in 2020. More here: https://autoweek.com/article/green-cars/toyota-unveils-its-own-master-plan-electric-vehicles
