About exports IMO, i'm not too sure if GM and Ford in the US are in the same boat. A big part of GM in the US are having disasterious sales, so an introduction of the Commodore for export, could generate revenue.
The Chevy Lumina is the export statesman to the US.
But for Ford they are making record sales in all divisions from their Fseries Trucks to the Luxo sedans. There was a report sometime ago that Lincoln has officially taken over Cadillac as America's Luxury car maker.
Good news for them but not so for Falcon, the falcon will almost certainly cut into their market of taurus and Crown Victoria and their sister cars sable and continental.
