its true, but again its about the sales, if they offer it as a derivative of f50 sure, the sales stay in the same bucket, but to make a new model and divert from the franchise and the glory, no buecnoooooo

its not cost cutting its consolodation. Toyota is the model for modular production. Its the CapEx that kills, when you need to retool a factory for the new model year or redesign or whatever. Toyota has these assembly lines now that are so basic and simple they can pick them up and go home at will if they really wanted.

I like the way you think here.

Fiat-Chrysler is running the Wrangler factory in Toledo, Ohio at triple shifts because they can't build enough Wranglers. Ford could really clean up if they offered an F-150 based Wrangler competitor named the Bronco. Bring it Ford!

Diversifying the F-150 is what i'd like to see, make a strong product stronger.
