No Cuts In Ford Product Programs

Ford product development chief Richard Parry-Jones promised to "battle back" any effort to cut into his future product budget. "That would jeopardize the turnaround plan," he told TheCarConnection. If anything, the company needs to add even more products than previously scheduled, Parry-Jones suggested. His position has strong support at the top: Ford Chief Operating Officer Nick Scheele has promised to increase spending on product. He knows how effective that can be - in Europe, where another turnaround plan was crafted by Scheele, the automaker is in the midst of a product offensive, launching 45 new vehicles during a five-year blitz. The result has been a noticeable increase in share, and a sharp improvement in the bottom line. After losing $1 billion in 2000, Ford of Europe broke even last year and expects to report a profit in 2000.

Ford's Future Plans for Taurus

http://auto.com/industry/taurus10_20020110.htm

It appears that Ford will have 4 mid size sedans:

1. Taurus- remarketed as budget mid size sedan.
2. D219 wagon - crossover similar to Toyota Highland and Honda
Pilot.
3. D219 sedan - new upscale large FWD sedan
4. Ford version of Mazda 6 - similar in size to Mondeo.

I wonder what that is going to look like. Has Ford come up with a name for this new car ?

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
