  1. What sets apart the F150 from the pack is the all aluminum body, the superior 3.5 turbo V6, and now the onboard power generator. Hard to beat. I would think these 3 exclusive features alone would attract previous non Ford buyers. No wonder Ford sells so many of them. Add in the Super Duty with turbo diesel putting out over 1,000 pounds of torque. The Super Duty rules in Central FL....they are everywhere. Big contractors love them and the mom and poppers buy the used ones.

    Do those numbers factor in F150s built, but sitting in lots throughout Metro Detroit waiting for electronic parts? The Freep just ran a story with pics of thousands of F150s parked with missing modules.

    According to many semiconductor CEO's, the chip shortage will last into early 2023 at least. So new cars will be like toilet paper....stock up when available.

    Considering buying some Ford Stock

    Got my Ford annual report in the mail today. First time in memory that Ford didn't insert color photos of its new vehicles worldwide. Just an accounting report in black and white. Used to look forward to the annual report and all the new vehicles. Ford really playing it close to the vest and not revealing much anymore. Although with the Bronco they showed over a year before production and with the Maverick no reveal mere a few months before production.

    Bronco to get own showroom

    Hey, in MI you need an offroader just to climb in and out of some of the pot holes there. Especially in early spring after a bad winter. I blew out more than a few tires over the years there not seeing a deep pothole hidden by a puddle. My Bronco ll back in the 80's got me out of a lot of trouble during terrible MI winters. I had traction lock on both diffs.

    Bronco Nation is saying that retail production has already started in that dealers are being issued VIN numbers. So those Ford dealers better get started. I could see Mullinax doing a separate showroom for Bronco only.

    Yeah, check it out. Menu looks yummy and lots of choices from coronary blockage to healthier choices that look tasty. 13 in FL and closest one to me is Lakeland where Publix headquarters is located and home of Detroit Tigers in early spring.

    How long has the Jeep Wrangler been around along with the Rubicon option? I don't think the offroad craze is going anywhere. Add in Covid and years away from global herd immunity, and offroad craze will only grow. Also add in poor roads and bridges, more extreme weather and lack of political will to get it done.

    Bronco to get own showroom

    Not only Bronco showroom, but now the Ford Garage restaurant. There is one in St. Augustine, FL at the Ford dealer there and one near Ford Dearborn headquarters. 13 more planned, most in Florida. Looks like in future you can eat and buy your Bronco accessories at your local Ford dealer.

    How about showing the Maverick or at least giving a reveal date.
  11. What should win the day is Ford's superior dealer network and better fit and finish. Over the air updates are aldo becoming more common from Ford lessening that Tesla advantage. My prediction is that Musk will sell Tesla within 3-5 years or merge with a bigger auto company or huge tech company like Apple.

    I'll bite. Here in Central FL, my Ford dealership is down to 82 new Fords when 250 is typical. Mullinax is down below 1200 when over 3000 is typical. Those numbers are worsening every week. New cars are like toilet paper...in high demand coupled with low supply.

    '21 March Sales/Chart

    Well, the constant media picture of Mr. Floyd being strangled to death along side an Explorer cop car is certainly not a good image. And anyone seeing an Explorer coming up quick in one's rear view mirror will probably have a quickening heartbeat. That being said, I support Ford staying in the cop car business.

    '21 March Sales/Chart

    Seems to me the profits are in Sport sedans like a 4 dr Mustang and Lincoln sport sedan based upon the same platform. Low volume and high profit margin. Let GM do the Malibu rental special. Take on high trim Charger, BMW, and MB. The Mustang has the pedigree to run with anyone in a straight line or road course.
  15. Yep, saw the commercial on You Tube.
