    New light & medium duty news

    You were correct about the updated Telematics system. Also announced modems that can be installed on older vehicles and some new info about E-Transit. I skimmed through parts of the video since there were some audio issues like working only on one side of my headphones for one person and then extremely loud in both sides for another person. I figured it wasn't gonna be a huge announcement/reveal or else they would have given heads up for that. Thanks for the link though. :)

    Lincoln zephyr concept car revealed

    Are there any articles regarding this Zephyr? Can't find any at the moment. I'm really liking what I see but unfortunately this would likely be china-only market.

    Ford to Launch More Sub-Brands?

    In this day of wokeness and all the complaining Karen's, they'll find a way to make Thunderbird offensive and demand Ford not use it if they plan on resurrecting it. I guarantee it. But we'll see what Farley has planned for though.
  7. And watch Blue's Clues at the hospital too. lol 😂

    Hyundai Santa Cruz Truck body leaked

    Don't see how passengers can get in and out of back seats without hunching down and squirming in because of that rear door shape. The Maverick is a big winner in that department with the squared-ish cab portion. The Santa Cruz also has weird styling all around it that doesn't quite flow together. As if few different teams put their styling on it at once. Now if Ford can go ahead and officially announce and reveal the Maverick already...

    Ford to Launch More Sub-Brands?

    Agreed however keep in mind that work on the 2019 USA Ranger was already locked in few years prior which was a completely different time then. Different CEO and there were no plans of sub-branding of Mustang and Bronco at the time too, at least not known publically. The Ranger name in itself is good but if Ford wanted to add more sub-branding, as Farley says, and thinking about doing that with Ranger, then re-naming it the F-100 Ranger would have made sense. However, it's too late due to success of 2019-2021 USA Ranger re-introduction as well as the next generation quickly coming. So the Ranger name stays that. Maverick wouldn't need to be F-50 because it's small. Ranger as it is now is quite large and almost the same size as F-150 in 1996 (note I said 'almost', NOT 'same size'). Yes, the F-Series is full-sized but with mid-sized Ranger quite large, it would have made sense for them to call it 'F-100 Ranger' to add it to F-Series umbrella... only if they had plans for sub-branding at the time. But with Ranger having done so well here with a new one coming soon, the name should just stay the same. I agree with you. We're just talking about what could be added as more sub-branding since Farley clearly has a plan of sorts to do so. Ford did recently file a trademark for Thunderbird but that could be just to preserve the name and logo. That's why I made a post about that name. Could be Falcon or Fairlane. Who knows but clearly Farley has a plan which may either be announced soon or later on when those particular vehicles get close to production... as Maverick pickup is getting close to production without even an announcement/reveal yet.

    Ford to Launch More Sub-Brands?

    I think it would have been a good idea to call it 'F-100 Ranger' in 2019 because of two reasons. First, the F-100 back in the 70s had the 'Ranger' and 'Explorer' trim lines so that name would be familiar for those old enough to remember those trucks or simply those who are aware of this. And secondly, more importantly, this would allow Ford to add this to the total F-Series sales numbers making it higher than it already is. It's too late now to do this now that the Ranger has been back in US for a few years and changing it to 'F-100 Ranger' for the next generation coming soon may be confusing. Unless they do some good marketing for it. So the 'Ranger' name is best left alone now. I agree with this. I do wonder if Thunderbird could be the next sub-branding, that is if the name won't cause issues like Cherokee has with the Native Americans. The Edge replacement as an electric 4-door crossover would be an obvious main model with styling cues of the old Fordor version of Thunderbird with suicide doors. It could be called Thunderbird Fordor or some kind of second name that would be familiar. Lincoln could have a version of this for next generation of Continental with styling of various older generations of Continental. Then an electric 2-door sporty coupe or even a 4-door sporty coupe-ish sedan-ish vehicle that resembles the styling of 80s/90s super coupe in low volume. Thunderbird Sports Coupe could be name of it. This could provide as basis for later on Mustang as well (S750??), but with Mustang's styling cues and logos, to further amortize development and production costs of these electric platforms.

    Agreed with this. But don't forget the Falcon, too, the namesake of your username.

    Genesis Concept X

    Yes I picked up on that too. The 90s BMW 850 and Z3 are some of nicest BMWs in my opinion along with the old classic 70s 2002 (02 Series). I do like this Genesis concept even with that grille. It looks nice.
  13. I didn't even think about the ManSquatches. Yeah that makes sense. Also Ford did say they're looking into possibilities of offering manual with the V6 too. Not sure if they came to the decision yet though. So there could be some holding out for that possibility too.
  14. While I'm impressed with the reservation numbers, I was thinking more manuals would have been reserved.
