    Mercedes-Benz Vans are the fastest growing brand.  Could be a sign that crossovers are done and commercial vans will take over the landscape.  People like boxy vehicles that haul things to suit their "active lifestyle"

    Mercedes vans was the fastest SINKING brand- they conceeded HUGE majority percentages of the segment to the competition from nissan, Ford, Chevrolet, RAM, etc. The rest of the market simply passed them right by and they are lingering in the cellar.

     M-B vans are up 16% year to date over last year, and up 71% in Oct 18 compared to Oct 17.

    MARKET SHARE. They owned the Euro van market in the USDM outright but have conceded the majority to their competition since they've come online.

    Just like Jeep can't... 

    I would upvote this by at least a thousand if I could.  If Ford can keep up the corporate attitude I see in these videos and focus on what they do well they will win me back.

    In any relationship the key is to define what will make you happy if you are unhappy. In the case of Ford...build what you are passionate about. 

    Jeep analogy is very well placed. I could see myself loving a Ford motor company that was passionate about Trucks...Mustangs...and SUVs...maybe Edge and one other.

    If they can stop trying to be all things to all people...they will win me back.

    Love...love...and love the new videos by Ford!

    I like this commercial especially, but Ford cannot afford to be a BOF Truck/SUV firm only.  Mustang aside, Ford needs more and better products in the unibody side of things.

    I disagree. Trying to be everything to everybody is what has held them back IMHO. I really like the idea of a strong lean and Focused (pun not intended) Ford motor company.

    • This is good stuff, I am glad Ford is expanding and helping the push to eV, the faster we go all EV and EV costs come down the better.  Also it is good they are investing the education side, because this country as a whole needs more people in Manufacturing, auto repair, auto body repair and trades in general.  We kind of got away from making things here and a lot of the people doing trade jobs are older, once they retire we are screwed if there aren't young people doing it too. 2 million EV's by 2026, Tesla is already there.  GM and Ford will probably have a good battle for #2 EV maker, what I don't see from Ford is the volume vehicles outside of F150, which the Lightning as it now is far outsold by the ICE version.  Mach-E isn't a volume product, Ford needs the $30k Escape EV that can sell huge numbers.  Lincoln is a dead brand, you aren't getting volume there.  Ford could do well with pickups and vans for the commercial market.
    • @surreal1272 Common Man, your popping his conspiracy bubble of false narrative about pricing on items that are not Tesla or Mercedes AMG Fan boy crazy prices cause an American Company has built auto's that are collectors items. 🤣 Here is just a portion of what I found in my neck of the woods and I see no price reduction like SMK is saying.
    • Good lord. Did you miss the limited production part of the Demon or do you somehow think there will be millions of them 20 years from now? It should be noted that the other cars you mentioned are all less than 20 years old too so maybe (skipping the fact that I routinely see CTS-V Wagons going for right at their original sticker with low miles), pick a spot and sitka with it because you can't have it both ways. A low mile limited production Demon will fetch above original price 20 years from now. They start at $69K and the Redeye starts at $76K so...go ahead and explain this...   And this...
    • Ouch another FORD Recall. They forgot to put in the proper circuit to allow Trailer Towing. Recall Alert: The 2023 Ford Maverick Can’t Tow (msn.com)
    • Used Hellcats right now are $50-85k for the most part, nothing is going to make those go up in value.  So I don’t see the last call demon selling for like $200k 20 years from now when there will be a ton of cheap hellcats and prior demons out there All the prior CTS-V’s, Camaros, Shelby Mustangs all depreciated.
