WASHINGTON/OTTAWA (Reuters) - The United States struck deals on Friday to lift tariffs on steel and aluminium imports from Canada and Mexico, the three governments said, removing a major obstacle to legislative approval of a new North American trade pact. The separate agreements, which will not impose U.S. quotas on Canadian and Mexican metals shipments, will also eliminate Mexican and Canadian retaliatory tariffs on a broad range of U.S. products, including pork, beef and bourbon. The United States and Canada said their agreement will be implemented by Sunday afternoon, and includes new curbs aimed at preventing dumped steel and aluminium from China and other countries from entering the U.S. market via Canada.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Bogged down in a sprawling trade dispute with U.S. rival China, President Donald Trump took steps Friday to ease tensions with America's allies — lifting import taxes on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum and delaying auto tariffs that would have hurt Japan and Europe.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday declared that some imported vehicles and parts pose a national security threat but delayed a decision for as long as six months on whether to impose tariffs to allow for more time for trade talks with the European Union and Japan. The unprecedented designation of foreign vehicles imported to the United States from some of its closest allies sparked anger from automakers, dealers and foreign governments after a White House document hinted it would seek voluntary export quotas on autos from U.S. trading partners.
GM, Ford and auto other stocks fell despite trade war headwinds easing. President Trump officially postponed auto tariffs by up to six months.

Adaptive cruise control system allows trucks to automatically adjust speed to maintain a set distance behind the vehicle ahead. It features a single high-mounted camera behind the rear view mirror and can bring the Sierra to a complete stop. The battle for share in the high-paying large-pickup truck market is intensifying and already a few General Motors' rivals offer this type of system.
If you like Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) stock or the shares of other American-automotive icons like General Motors (NYSE:GM) or Fiat Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU), you should avoid buying them anyway. In fact, I urge you to do so. I'm going to unleash hell on Ford stock, and American cars in general. If you get emotional, that's your responsibility.Source: Barbara Eckstein via FlickrLet's talk about why F stock has garnered significant interest lately. Since the start of this year, Ford stock has gained 32%, which is remarkable. * 6 Chinese Stocks That Could Pop On a Trade Deal But auto sales have flatlined for the last four years. Additionally, ride-share services like Uber (NYSE:UBER) and Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) have transformed personal transportation.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIt also doesn't help that millennials just don't care for buying cars as previous generations did when they were young. Millennials are growing up at a time when multiple, private transportation options exist. However, it's also true that young Americans are comparatively financially strapped.If they're going to buy a car, they need a reliable one. That hurts Ford because it's not the most reliable automaker. That leads me to the first of my many unpleasant points: American Cars Stink, and So Will Ford StockI just have to say it: American cars are terrible. Over the past several years, Detroit has promised it would compete effectively against the Japanese and Germans. I still remember Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit" tagline. It was a clever, catchy piece of marketing genius.Unfortunately, it was also pure nonsense. Part of the appeal of owning an American car is that, well, it's American. Back in my high school days, our principal said that it's important to buy American cars to support our economy. But it's equally critical for domestic manufacturers to compete overseas.I'm sure my principal's sentiment was repeated across the nation. The fact that people have to resort to patriotism to tout American automakers , though, indicates that American cars can't compete on quality, reliability or attributes. Americans Reject Their Own CarsF stock and American cars in general are emblematic of this great nation's many problems. They appeal to folks on a superficial basis, but are very weak when it comes to fundamentals.Look at the politicians who supposedly "serve" their constituents. How many of them personally drive American cars when the cameras aren't looking? Probably very few.Exhibit A is President Donald J. Trump. As a tall, rich, (arguably) good-looking white man with a sharp tongue, he obviously appeals to the patriotic crowd. Today, he "drives" an American car because he has to.But when he was just "The Donald," he didn't seem to care too much for domestic rides. Remember that episode of The Apprentice when he showed up in an exotic Mercedes-Benz sports car? How quickly we forget that, at one point, Trump's most-prized automotive possessions were a Rolls-Royce and a Lamborghini Diablo!Why, then, should I buy an American car when my own President doesn't even exclusively buy American cars? Hard Numbers Condemn F StockIf you got through all that without cursing, congratulations! You probably dismissed my arguments against Ford stock as subjective reasoning. But now, we're going to get into the numbers.Honestly, they just don't look good for F stock. The last time its quarterly revenue hit a peak was in June 2007. At that time, sales slightly exceeded $44.2 billion. Since then, the automaker has failed to equal that haul, despite our supposedly robust economic recovery.Compare the malaise of Ford Motor Company stock to its fierce rival, Toyota (NYSE:TM). From an automotive perspective, I'm not a big fan of TM, either. I find their cars intractably boring. But as a business and an investment, it's doing pretty well, despite the shortcomings of its products.Toyota's quarterly revenue peaked in March 2012, with a haul of just under $72 billion.Its top line has been declining ever since. The difference, though, is that TM is climbing back. Toyotas have broad appeal in Japan, the U.S., and Latin America. With its Lexus luxury brand, it's also capturing some snobby Europeans.Ford is doing what it does best: give up. With that kind of loser's mentality, I just can't trust Ford stock for the long haul. Even a Tailwind for Ford Motor Company Stock Is Dying!Don't think that I'm completely biased against Ford stock. The one area where it excels is big, heavy trucks. In that area, Detroit is currently untouchable.Sadly, though, this market is fading. Sales of heavyweight trucks last peaked in 2006, shortly before the housing and banking crises.I'm not sure if the segment will ever regain its prior peak. The entire automotive landscape is changing. What hurts Ford stock, though, is that its Japanese and German rivals have adapted to the changes. Detroit hasn't, which is why I don't trust the rally of Ford stock at any price.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

AEV and Chevrolet collaborated on the hardcore Colorado ZR2 Bison, and AEV appears ready to continue to build on the platform. This truck is a fully-capable off-roader, but AEV is so far making no promises to build it for consumers.
