Man this sucks.

Ford further cuts truck production, warns of losses

Bryce G. Hoffman / The Detroit News

Ford Motor Co. said today that it will again cut truck production and is delaying the launch of its new F-150 pickup as consumer demand shifts to more fuel-efficient cars and crossovers.

In addition, the Dearborn automaker warned that this year's financial results will be worse than last year's when the automaker lost $2.7 billion and said its consumer finance arm, Ford Credit, will swing to an unprecedented loss because of the weak market for used trucks and sport utility vehicles.

CEO Alan Mulally told The Detroit News that the U.S. automobile market "continues to deteriorate," even as the shift from pickups and SUVs to cars and crossovers accelerates.

They are also running some Raptors through the system, there was one driving around in final yesterday and I know there is one in paint.

I will have to pull back the covers on it  Lips Sealed



Same at OHAP, the E-Series is also going through a 1/2 model year already. I think it is a multi-purpose launch for the company.
  • 1. They can correct some engineering problems associated with the overhauled new model
  • 2. they can extend the term of our rebalance (120 day clock) to cut more jobs.

liqudspine, be aware that this is the section of the forum that is open for the public to view. You may want to keep a lid on how much you divulge here!
