Get it up Ford! You're about 1 year and 6 months late to the party. If I was a Nebraska wheat farmer, tending my fields out in the "middle of nowhere", and my Chevy Silverado was picking-up my favorite country station, or giving me "commodities future prices", via a factory installed XM radio... ....and if I was his neighbor, out in an adjoinging field, in my new Ford-F150, listening the the "snap-crackle-pop" of my AM/FM fading in and out, I'd be "right damn Pissed-off". Get it Ford? We want this, now, not last year! Sat-Rad is real, and it's "here to stay", and growing! Just ask all the GM truck owners!
Actually the Sirius satelite radio service comes out to an even $10 per month if you prepay for the year, or 12.95 if you pay month to month--I should know, I have it. Further more if you get two radios (the second for your wife, son/daughter or anyone else) the second one comes out to only $6.95--now that's a deal you can't beat.
I love my Sirius radio, I would never go back to regular radio again.
Disclaimer: "I'm not an investor in Ford, but my brother is". I did post Strong Buy sentiment when Ford was trading in the $7.00 range, just b/c it was such an obvious "strong buy" at that price. I still see Ford a "stong buy" at $14.00-15.00, if they do a "few key things". One would be to shed the "Good old Ford-boy image", and "get-with-the-21Century", as they have with the likes of the new Ford Escape Hybrid. I think that's "daring invention", and it will pay-off big with Ford. Imagine being able to drive 500 miles on one tank of gas! Also, estimated fuel consumption of 30-40 MPG! That's strong! Especially in today's $2.50-3.00 gas! Well, that you will be able to do with the new Ford Escape Hybrid. That means you can drive from my home town of Memphis, all the way to California, on 4 tanks of gas! Simply amazing! Now, if I could just listen to my "factory installed" Sirius Radio, as I was driving across the country, I'd be real, real happy! NFL/NBA/NHL/Commercial-Free Music/CNBC/NPR etc.etc...all for about $10.00 a month...coast-to-coast coverage, no static; even on the "lonliest highway in America", highway 50, out in the middle of nowhere, I'd would be able to have crystal clear reception in my Ford, if they ever "get-with-it"! Siriusly!
