Speaking of wishy washy idiots... :bash: 40k trucks is hardly the 90k number that it has been...but I bet you would rather Ford keep building trucks just to sit on dealers lots...then have to throw money on them to sell...but that's a stupid idea too. Or it's better to shut down a plant for 2 months because the vehicles they make don't sell...good idea too eh? Industry analysts have said for a couple years that $4 a gallon of gas would be the "breaking point" for many consumers. At that price, many consumers would really start abandoning the idea of driving a big impractical (for the typical buyer) truck that gets mid-teen fuel economy at best for gas economical vehicles....whether hybrids, Fusions, or even small SUV's (Escapes for example). The folks that need trucks will buy them, but gone are the days of people buying $50k King Ranch F350's w/ Diesels or V10's just because they can look cool. Ford is only making the changes they need to be competitive with the rest of the world. If axing a big truck engine will do the trick, I'm all for it. Lets keep in mind that Ford will build what the market demands. If nobody wants trucks, Ford will scale back truck production and build cars. See the other news about the new cars coming that are the TOP sellers in Europe. Lets also keep in mind that Ford has been building cars/trucks since before any of us were around. I bet they have a good chance of making the necessary changes to turn the company around.
