Respectable numbers, what I would expect for the down turn in auto sales. Over all not bad Ford.

I keep seeing Continentals around me.  Since I can't get a CT6 into my driveway, I should put a Conty on my shopping list instead.

Back seat is so tight, anyone 6' tall or taller in your household will find it hard to get into and out of.

Nope, the back seat is not spacious for a full size sedan. Head room especially is below average when I think of what they were in the past and even now.

Full of sh!t, per usual, on topics like this. 

*Doesn't like Ford

"The Continental is itty bitty and doesn't fit an adult human"

*Loves GM*

"XT4 offers plenty of interior space"

The XT4 feels small as my Encore inside.

The Continental seems to hold its value better than the CT6 for some reason.  I can't find as good of a deal on a Conti as I can on a CT6.  But that CT6 wheelbase is so long that the Caddy will high-center at the top of my driveway.

That seems odd because with low sales you'd think that means low demand as well.. I guess a lot of people just refused to pay MSRP for it. 

That's a bummer you literally can't fit the Caddy in your driveway.

My Toronado scrapes the exhaust if I don't exit the driveway at an angle.   Oh well, time for a new house. :smilewide:

With my tiny garage and the stairs of the split level, I think I'm going to be looking for a new house sooner than later...more garage space and a single story ranch...

Guess that eliminates any exhaust-dragging toyotas from your driveway.

I really like this Rambler with Mother-in-law suite.

Have to say, pretty nice for a flat rambler which is awesome to not deal with steps.

Why can't you get a CT6 in your driveway?

Oh never mind I read about the low scraping.  Probably the CT6 should have height adjustable suspension.

The driveway is so steep and the wheelbase of the car is so long that it will bottom out at the top of the driveway where it goes from angled to horizontal.  

I've tried with a loaner from Cadillac last year.

I love the genius of Ford management, the Fusion is their #3 seller and up 10% for the year while the brand overall is down.  But kill the Fusion.  Once you leave a segment it is almost impossible to go back in.  I think someone at Ford read the Rick Wagoner "cut your way to profitability" playbook and thought it was a good idea.

So an A8, 7-series or E-class or S-class which all have adjustable height suspension is the answer.

Sure, and they all have horrid enough depreciation to make it a feasible purchase.

The E-Class could probably make it without a height adjustable suspension though, the 300C and CTS do.

The Fusion is up because they are basically sire selling them. Aside from that, they were not as profit heavy as their CUVs and not in as much demand overall, hence going bye bye. Quit trying to throw out phantom criticism when the reasons for it going away were pretty obvious.

Corrected above.

That's a CUV? That looks lower and smaller like a "typical" hatchback. 

Evolution...a car-like CUV, almost a 'wagon'.   Reminds me of the Venza profile.

      Ford is preparing to launch a pair of mid-size crossover electric vehicles according to sources. One Ford and one Lincoln are code named CDX746 and CDX747 are similar in size to the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus and both will be 2023 models.  The vehicles were originally destined for Ford's plant in Cuautitlan, Mexico but have been moved to Flatrock Assembly in Michigan just south of Detroit.   Flatrock Assembly is where the Ford Mustang and Lincoln Continental are currently built. 
      These two EVs are slated for about 65,000 units annually and because of the move to Flatrock, essentially spell the end for the slow selling Lincoln Continental.... at least in the US.  It is possible that Lincoln could continue building the Continental in China and import it to the U.S., however tariff concerns which killed the Ford Focus Active from being imported from China could also filter over onto the Continental.

      Ford is acknowledging the trouble prone Ford Powershift transmission and is extending the warranties on them.  The 6-speed transmission is a dual clutch setup meant to increase fuel economy in Ford's smallest cars.  While a solid idea on paper, customers reported a number of problems with them including slippage, hesitations while accelerating, jerkiness through the gears, difficulty downshifting, and premature wear on the clutch packs. 
      The extended warranty will cover 2014 - 2016 model year Ford Focus, and 2014 - 2015 model year Ford Fiesta and will increase the warranty coverage of the clutch from five years/60,000 miles to seven years/100,000 miles.  Ford will also reimburse customers in this group who have already paid for clutch repairs out of pockets.  The transmission control module will also be warrantied to 10 years/150,000 miles. 
      In addition to that, there is a small group of customers (16%) who need a software update which Ford will provide for free. 
      Affected customers will receive a letter from Ford with instructions on how to proceed.

      Ford and GM, the U.S.'s top two auto manufacturers are bracing themselves for the worst.  They have been running economic modeling to determin the steps they would take given a medium or severe recession in the US and across global markets.  General Motors has a stockpile of $18 billion in cash while Ford has $20 billion saved up.
      GM is relying on deferring non-essential capital expenditures and a shift in production to lower cost vehicles as part of its plan to save costs in the event of a a strong downturn.  Ford says is is evaluating its future moves. 
      Fears of a recession have plagued Wall St. most of 2019 while a trade war with China rages on.  Higher costs of materials due to tariffs is adding to the pain of weak product demand in the U.S., China, and Europe.  In Germany, Europe's biggest economy, growth shrank by 0.1 percent in Q2 2019 as trade conflicts and auto industry troubles weighed heavily on the economy.  Both exports and lagging demand at home have put a strain on German automakers already looking to slash costs. 
      Today, a strong signal that a recession is looming appeared as the 10-year treasury yield dropped below the 2-year treasury yield while do Dow Jones Industrial Average sank over 450 points.
