    Commercial Truck Marketing

    I don't believe that Ford is pushing these small dealers out more than I believe it is larger dealer chain networks buying them up to both expand and protect their market share. In my market, a "local chain" bought the Ford/Lincoln dealer in one market even though they had a big Ford Store in the next town over but they wanted the Lincoln marque to add to their portfolio...then Lincoln goes through their change up several years back and discontinues the franchise at the Ford/Lincoln store...so the local chain decides to just fold the remaining Ford store into their "big" Ford Store and sold the property to another local chain that turned it into a Mitsubishi store.....

    Bumping thread for an update Sales code: F13215 Order Code: 3005  Type: retail Priority Code: 15
  5. Ford has previous (and current) experience building unibody trucks and selling them quite well. I am not worried about a unibody truck from Ford from a sales standpoint.
  6. ...I guess the embargo of TFL is over at Ford.
  7. Hasn't been used in North America that is....the name Courier is, however, used as a small van in the Transit/Tourneo range...aka, Transit/Tourneo Courier built on the Ford Global B chassis...built by Ford Otosan in Turkey for sale in the EU.

  8. I could see Ford giving TC an update and including an XL / Hybrid / FWD model for fleet sales. Better beef up that SK connection....Ford will need a lot more batteries.
  9. Here in America, you can earn and/or make as much as humanly possible, what defines you as a good citizen is how you live your life as your earnings explode...latest thing Bezos is doing is going for a joy ride on a rocket ship with his brother into space. I get the implications for the success of Blue Origin, but seriously? This smacks of a publicity stunt that just shows how vapid Mr. Bezos is....I hope I am wrong on this. Lets look back in our history on some of America's most famous rich people and compare them to today's crop of self-serving Richie Rich wannabes.... Here is the first Forbes "richest persons list", you will see some famous names on it, some were a**holes, some were philanthropists and most all were remembered for what they "gave back" to ensure their legacy. Andrew Carnegie was quoted and said it best, "He who dies thus rich, dies in disgrace." https://www.forbes.com/sites/chasewithorn/2017/09/19/the-first-forbes-list-see-who-the-richest-americans-were-in-1918/?sh=f6831824c0d2
  10. Who will manufacture a cap/camper shell for it?? Please, for the love of God...not Webasto.....
  11. It will be a hit here in NA and I can see this little beastie getting exported/built overseas too.
  12. Also ironic that Ford and VW are now, approx. 60 years later, collaborating to build vans together and yet, the "chicken tax" is still in place.
