  1. Ford Motor Co.’s hot-selling Mustang Mach-E electric SUV and other plug-in models are being rendered unprofitable by rising raw material costs. “We actually had a positive bottom line profit when we launched the Mach-E, commodity costs have wiped that out,” Chief Financial Officer John Lawler said Wednesday at the Deutsche Bank Global Automotive Conference, referring to 2020, when the vehicle went on sale. “You’re going to see pressure on the bottom line when we launch our EVs, they’re not going to be positive.” link: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ford-mustang-mach-e-profit-170117652.html
  2. Git r done! I need these used F-150 prices to come down.
  3. Looks like my next pickup in 2040+ will be a Tundra instead of a F-150.
  4. Six Major Automakers Agree to End Gas Car Sales Globally by 2040 "However, the governments of three of the most significant car markets—the United States, China, and Japan—refrained from joining the pledge, as did major automakers such as Toyota, Volkswagen, and Nissan-Renault." https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a38213848/automakers-pledge-end-gas-sales-2040/
  5. Another error by Roman at TFL... Tanner Sterling2 days ago Just a FYI that this truck was never at Hastings Ford Lincoln in Nebraska. You should ask your selling dealer to recheck where they actually got that truck from. I can tell you that is was never in Hastings, NE and it originated in a completely different state. A simple Google search of the VIN shows that it was also at another dealership, also in that state, not Nebraska. Please stop referencing the Ford store in Hastings, NE as your video is creating an injustice to the wonderful people that work at that dealership. ----------- The Fast Lane Truck 1 week ago (edited) Correction: The Ford Dealership in Hastings, Nebraska contacted us and said they never had this truck in their possession but that it came from a dealership in Kansas. The dealership we purchased the truck from fixed the Raptor and now the mirror switch works.
  6. James Phieffer1 day ago There's a lot of whining in this video. Roman didn't do his homework, and now is paying for it. He bought a truck that was likely driven by various sales people, hence the mileage. And the mirror switch was broken, which he would have noticed if he did something as basic as adjust his mirrors before he drove off the lot. And then he makes this huge fuss over "I was told it was a 2020", as if he'd somehow been lied to - and shows us the door sticker, that tells us it's a 2020, built in November '19. And if this dealership is right next door, and they're great, then why didn't he talk to them first? This is why I tend to ignore TFL posts with Roman. He's just gotten really whiny. I'll stick with the rest of the crew.
  7. Roman and his guys mess up again, don't do their homework and Roman takes no responsibility. I'm just saying.

  9. About 150 General Motor Co. dealers are parting ways with Cadillac instead of investing in costly upgrades required to sell electric cars, according to FOX Business. GM recently gave the dealers the choice: accept a buyout ranging from $300,000 to more than $1 million to exit the brand or spend about $200,000 to upgrade their dealerships for the sale of electric vehicles. About 17% of Cadillac’s 880 US dealerships agreed to take the offer to end their franchise agreements for the luxury brand, because many of them own other GM brands like Chevrolet and Buick and don’t sell many Cadillacs. That decision illustrates that even as the value of electric vehicles rises, many car industry insiders remain skeptical about selling and investing in the products. Dealers are weighing costly facility investments like electrical-system upgrades against uncertainty about demand for the vehicles, which now account for about 2% of U.S. vehicle sales. Some retailers say they are putting off orders of electric models, worried they will sit too long on their lots. Even in markets where electric vehicles are more popular, like San Francisco, dealers say the lack of commuting during the pandemic has led to a drop off in demand for cars like GM’s Chevrolet Bolt. https://nypost.com/2020/12/06/unplugged-cadillac-dealers-ditch-brand/
  10. 1. 2020: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/steelworkers-union-hails-victory-in-aluminum-dumping-case-811682301.html Steelworkers Union Hails Victory in Aluminum Dumping Case NEWS PROVIDED BY United Steelworkers (USW) Jan 16, 2020, 06:00 ET "OTTAWA, Jan. 16, 2020 /CNW/ - The United Steelworkers (USW) union is hailing a ruling by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) to prevent the dumping of Chinese extruded aluminum products into the Canadian market. In its ruling released this week, the CITT renewed a previous order that unfair dumping of subsidized Chinese exports of aluminum extrusion products threatens the viability of Canadian producers and the jobs of their workers." 2. This is the Chinese plan. Send aluminum to Canada to become Canadian ‘aluminum’ to be shipped to the US. But it hurts Canadian companies, too. 3. But Canada said it was tariffing China? China can send it to a third country like Britain and then it becomes British steel. 4. Also China could pay the Canadian tariffs and use other unfair practices such as massive subsidies, currency manipulation, or sell it below cost and flood the market to drive everyone out of business. 5. This also doesn't address that Canada promised not flood the market WHEREVER it came from before they signed the deal in the first place. And the fact that the deal included steps to monitor for and avoid import surges. 6. No evidence? In May 2020 aluminum from Canada surged 87% when compared to the 12 months prior. In June it was the highest since they have been trying to get it down. 7. But Trump is mean and going back on the deal? Wash Post reports: "Trump’s reimposition of tariffs doesn’t violate the new trade deal — known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement — because the ability to impose tariffs is covered in a side deal. 8. I know some people like to put blame on the US for everything and excuse socialist Canada and take the side of Communist China, but it is more complicated than just one side is being unfair, orange man mean. 9. As for Ford F150s, Ford address this on the 2015 F150. Cost goes up only a little for alum. They sell one extra gizmo and it pays for it and they make even more profit than before without the added cost of aluminum.
  11. It's Canada going back on the deal. Chinese aluminum is being routed through Canada to evade import tariffs.
