    Bryan1 got a reaction from rperez817 in Ford’s Mustang Mach-E Profit Wiped Out by Commodity Costs   
    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.”

    Bryan1 got a reaction from NLPRacing in TFL: We Just Bought A Brand New Ford F-150 Raptor, And It Was A PAINFUL Experience: Here's What Happened!   
    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.

    Bryan1 got a reaction from twintornados in Unplugged Cadillac dealers ditch brand   
    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.

    Bryan1 got a reaction from Len_A in 2021 Ford F-150 Looks Like A Huge Winner   
    I found the exterior design extremely compelling, essentially flawless. Ford avoided any mistakes, and the “nose” of the car looks elegant and fresh.
     
    The main objective of the interior was to catch up to the RAM 1500 and add various nifty features. It looks like Ford succeeded.
     
    Exterior design: Flawless
    This is often the first and most important step to a redesign of an existing product such as the Ford F-150. In this case, really the only thing people will notice is the face of the car - straight from the front and in profile -- and that "little thing" is of crucial importance. In my opinion, Ford hit a home run with the new face of the F-150: It looks flawless. If the 2021 F-150 story stopped right there, it may be enough to declare the whole operation a victory.
    Interior design: Catching up to RAM 1500
    This is the area where Ford had its greatest challenge with the 2021 F-150, and we all know why: RAM 1500. The RAM came out in March 2018 and is universally considered the leader in interior design, by a wide margin.
      Everyone expected Ford to close the gap with the 2021 F-150, for all the obvious and necessary reasons. So, the bar was high.
    How did it do? The answer is slightly inconclusive for the simple reason that I have not yet had the opportunity to examine the F-150 interior in person. We have to rely on photos here, as well as this seemingly exclusive in-person video, from Kelley Blue Book (was supposed to be Roman 😉): 2021 Ford F-150 | First Look

    You need to learn how this works. All Politicians make boasting statements in ads and speeches all the time, but with Trump they are now counting these as lies. When Trump says something like this is the greatest economy in history, and he says that 1000 times in ads, the WAPO counts this as 1,000 lies. That is where the 15,000 lies come from. It is all fake news. Politicians do this all the time. It is nothing new. Biden and all politicians do the same thing. But Biden or Obama makes a huge lie like if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor they don't count that. They only count Trump . Educate yourself.

    This is what Ford considers a Fleet Buyer.
     
    "Registered or leased for use in operation 5 or more new vehicles (any make or model) during the current or preceding calendar year
    OR
    Currently operate a fleet of 15 or more vehicles (any make or model)"

    How is Ford's conduct childish here? TFL was invited to the product reveal and got greedy or wasn't thinking and posted the pics before the reveal. TFL should be ashamed of themselves instead of trying to shame Ford. It is unfair to Ford and unfair to all the other sites who waited. If Ford in response made a bratty video mocking TFL and posted a tweet with black tape over the TFL logo and then banned them for life and said no more TFL then that would be childish, pathetic and obnoxious. Writing them a letter univiting them was what they had to do. Roman and Andre should rethink what they are doing. They don't always have to be first on everything.

    "F-150 introduces an all-new 12-inch center screen – standard on XLT high series and above – that allows customers to split the screen and control multiple functions simultaneously, including navigation, music or truck features. The landscape design strikes a balance between demands for technology accessibility and the greater convenience of physical buttons. An 8-inch touch screen, standard on XL and XLT standard and mid-series trucks, means every customer gets touch screen functionality and better rearview camera vision. Both screens feature access to the new digital owner’s manual, which can help all customers find the information they need more easily, including how-to videos for additional explanation."
