    Ford News: Ford Hopes To Sooth Dealers This Week

    In a rising truck/SUV market: SELL MOAR TRUCKS! If Ford applies it's 'F-Series' template to the other truck lines, IE: more variants than any other line in the USDM, sales will naturally increase.

    Sure! Just make out the bank check to 'Jagooarr US' for $694,000.

    Where are you getting that Ford is saying/expecting to shift their car customers to CUVs/SUVs?
  4. The question is; is it ever?
  5. Guess she must be over-compensating for... something.

    ^ Good points. Recently I saw segment numbers from the '09-ish oil spike and 'trucks' saw a 17% higher contraction than 'cars' (don't know where CUVs were slotted) - obviously considerable, but I would think far less than many people might have guessed. I read plenty of assurances that 'trucks are dead' back then.

    On the other hand, Ford still knows how to build SUVs, CUVs and trucks, and toyoyo/honda has their collective heads up their arses with their car obsessions. When the car market eventually comes crashing dow— whooops!!

    ^ If the business case for going forward with a model / line is ONLY being #1 in sales or 'gettng buried'... MAN is consumer choice going to tighten up!!

    OCTOBER CAR SPOTTERS!

    ^ I agree in principal; would be a nice change of pace. However, the majority of modern stuff has little in the way of a 'natural divider' for 2-tones. The Lincoln looks a bit off above/below the headlight.
  11. Depends which year- started with the 383, then the 440, then the 360.

    Other that reading the badging, only a MB tech can tell. CLA/S-Coupe :
  14. IMO the new grille is giant downgrade. So is the lower fascia- car looks to be a whole price tier lower than in '18. EDIT :: Wow, now seeing them on the same page, I really think the '19 is a huge U-turn; I'd own an '18, but never a '19. Not looking like a Cadillac to me in '19. Not looking forward to the lower trim '19's...
  15. No prob- just expressing my POV. SOMETIMES odd & funky is cool- that's true. But in my book, 'odd & funky' struggles to be 'cool' and almost never achieves being 'a thing of beauty'. Unless smk was calling the A7 'odd & funky', then I'll go away. ;)
