I haven't heard anything to change the C489 MKC Job1 from Q4'13

it was said a short time ago that the X would have been shown by this time next year but not out yet
& the MKS comes out after the X
So, if you're right about the Navigator, we'll see two summer debuts! And maybe the MKX shown in LA? And then MKS in Detroit. And then things will get really juicy.

well, I don't want to see anything shown more than 3ish months before it goes on sale
so the showing needs to be close to the Job1 date imho

re: the C
like I've said, haven't heard anything to change the Q3 Job1
so
I hope Job1 is early October & wouldn't mind waiting until LAIAS to show it
AND
make the dang thing a 2015my
I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER Xmas/NEW YEAR'S BOTCH to be even worst-case possible!

I don't think we'll see anymore botched launches. I'm sure they're making sure it won't happen again.

MKS did not drop far month to month. Last month was 924, so that is only a 196 vehicle drop. Not shocking, given the MKZ is all new.

I actually expected a bigger MKZ month.

Does anyone know when the MKC (or is it the MKE) is coming out? I would say the RX350 needs a good competitor and I hope Lincoln can do it with that new MK?.

Re: Ford US April 2013 Sales Up 18 Percent

Ford is certainly concerned about bad launches, and is trying hard, but lets face it, who else is launching as much new product and powertrains. Fusion alone had how many engines and transmissions, including hybrid. Try as you might, sometimes things happen. Hard to prepare for everything, when so much is all new.

MKX competes with RX350, right?

Re: Ford US April 2013 Sales Up 18 Percent

The RX350 sold in the 1st three months of the year 21404 up 20% over the first three months of 2012. In the same time frame the MKX sold 6066 down 6%. The MKX is not competing very well. Ford can crack that RX350 stranglehold once they launch that Escape derivative MK?
