- Ford owns the EPA -
LOL! Yeah, I'm sure that Ford told the EPA to raise fuel economy requirements to 54.5mpg by 2025 so they could unnecessarily spend billions of dollars on R&D!
- Ford bragged that their C-Max was a Prius Killer -
Care to tell us when Ford said that - and provide us a link?
- It is actually impressive that the error was found so quickly in a totally enclosed component. -
I agree. While we would rather see no such problems, this one was quickly identified and taken care of. I wonder if the supplier found the problem and informed Ford of it.
I suppose some people would rather see Ford build a couple hundred thousand units and THEN issue a recall to fix the problem ...
Ford has stated on more than one occasion that the new F-150 will be on dealer lots in the fourth quarter, i.e. not until October at the earliest.
Hi greatday! How are you doing? Great to see you here again! :-)
I think we'll see a RWD Lincoln in the not-too-distant future. One rumor I've seen has the new MKS sitting on the Mustang platform, while another one says a new nameplate altogether(Continental, maybe? Hopefully? Please?). I think something will come of it, just not sure what.
F-150 supplies will not "dry up." The Kansas City plant is still buiding F-150s even as the Dearborn plant transitions over to the new truck. Once the Dearborn plant is building the new trucks, the KC plant will begin its transition.
Or do you think management isn't smart enough to do that?
Spam ... can't even spell "Hyundai" right, and Daewoo no longer exists.
Ford released pricing for the 2015 F-150 this morning. Summary:
XL and XLT will see a price increase of $395 over the 2014 model, while Lariat will see a price increase of $895 over the 2014 model.
XL, XLT, and Lariat are expected to comprise 85% of F-150 sales. XL, XLT, and Lariat starting prices are $26,615, $31,890, and $39,880, respectively, and all prices include the $1,195 shipping fee. For comparison, the base Chevy Silverado starts at $27,670, $1,000 more than the XL.
King Ranch will see a price increase of $3,515 over the 2014 model. The starting price is $49,460.
Platinum will see a price increase of $3,015 over the 2014 model. The starting price is $52,155.
FX4, Harley-Davidson, and Limited have been canned for 2015. I think there's an FX4 option (not a separate trim level) for 2015, but I'm not entirely sure.
For all of the people bemoaning the price increases they expected, I think that the increases are reasonable - especially with the XL, XLT, and Lariat models. I would surmise that the King Ranch and Platinum models incorporate features and options from the departed FX4, H-D, and Limited models, which may partly explain the price increase for those trucks.
Can't be marketed? Really? The diabetics I know HATE needles. One of them, the only thing he hates more than needles is the insulin pump he's forced to use.
If you really think that Dreamboat is comparable to Exubera's bong, you're smoking something ...
If you were smart like some of us, you'd have bought when Ford was in the single digits. Now THAT is long-term investing.
