Ford Could Have Made A Better Effort To Sell Smaller Cars

The Ford Motor Company announced major cutbacks today. Many people are going to be laid off. A big reason Ford gives for the terminations is the seemingly permanent high price of gas. Yet it was Ford that was at the forefront of pushing huge gas-guzzling SUV’s and huge gas-guzzling trucks. These vehicles have never been ecologically, or, as is now apparent, commercially sustainable.   

Ford pursued a rotten strategy. Regretfully, many Americans bought into that strategy.

  2. Also, Ford cars leave a bit to be desired. I owned a Taurus a couple of years ago and it was a nightmare. I owned a Ranger about 10 years ago and it gave me no problems.

  3. Neil,

    Glad to see you finally have a blog. I’d been thinking for a while that you should.

    Just wanted to say “Hi” and show my support. Keep writing, and fighting the good fight.

    Hope you are well.

    Oh, yeah, and SUVs suck!

    Mike
