Typo on misspelling braking is my part . But again I don't need to hear from Ford's peanut gallery. Meanwhile you can continue with your delusion that any Ford based Lincoln is comparable in performance to Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Acura, Cadillac, Lexus, Infiniti , Buick, Chevrolet Impala and yet to be introduced rwd Caprice SS, and Hyundai's premium models. In fact, I read in Motor Trend today that the 2013 Fusion's ... Read More
http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/10/farley-coy-about-re-naming-lincoln/ I doubt that they will be conjuring up a completely new name for the brand. Continental was once a separate brand, but that seems unlikely. Seems I was reading a suggestion somewhere (but I don't remember where) that they were considering Lincoln Motors or Lincoln Motor Company. Along with the brand name modification, I bet they will re-do the MK names as well.
Allen said: Cadillac tried that with the CTS and the new ATS and so far all it got them was bankruptcy. We all know you hate GM and treat it like a rival football team, rather than a rival company that has had its ups and downs like Ford. GM did go bankrupt. However, since then, there have been many quarters of profits, just as with Ford and Chrysler. So, your ... Read More

On the heels of Ford's reported profitability for 2011 comes this article: http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/27/ford-tops-in-non-retail-sales-45-of-focus-sol- d-to-fleets/ That sounds a bit like bad old habits. As for Lincoln, light a fire under that new Lincoln team. While they are struggling to get the MKZ to market by November, Cadillac will have both the ATS (completely new rear drive model), and the XTS (roomier, more luxurious and better looking than its MKS rival) on sale ...

True, Allen, the CTS is the best Cadillac. It comes in sedan, coupe and wagon versions, and one can get a V version (550 hp) if one wishes, in any one of them. The SRX, however, should not be dismissed. They got it right this time, and in 2012, they now have a competitive engine for it as well. It is selling neck and neck with the Lexus. The MKX did ...

Now the news is that the MKT, like the Ford Flex, will be going away in 2013. No second iteration for either one of these relatively new efforts. Ford has had no luck lately with these people movers/minivans/CUV-like wagons. Neither the Freestar or Freestyle caught on. The Taurus X was no better sales-wise. The Flex has largely been a sales flop too. Not that any of these were/are not good vehicles, ... Read More
The Jag platform, just like dew98, is expensive. It can't use any of Ford's corporate V8s - they don't fit, which requires expensive engines no larger than 4.2L which are also owned by Jag. Nothing would be shared with other Ford brands. Where did you get 2015 for GRWD? I think it's 2012 worst case and more likely 3 years (2011). The MKS cost far less than the LS - 90% ... Read More
The MKS has less room than the Sable and less trunk space, even though it is a longer car. The Sable was already arguably too long for its 112.9" wheelbase. I don't understand why they didn't lengthen the MKS wheelbase at least a couple inches. That is no engineering feat, and would have differentiated it a bit more from the Taurus/Sable. Heck, they could have used the wheelbase from the Flex, ... Read More
Bold, well thought out plan, douglas. Unfortunately you aren't running Ford. Even if you were, it'd be 2012 or so before Ford could bring anything like that to market if they started today. Neither am I of course (probably a good thing) but I want to add my 2cents. Having been part of a focus group a year and a half or more ago, I saw what I'm 90% sure was ... Read More
