I think Ford needs this truck badly. The Tacoma is just eating their lunch man.

Phil LeBeau of CNBC was on tv just a few minutes ago saying what we already know about the F-100 coming

think I need to find a map showing the locations of all Ford's assembly plants
I know Wayne is "next door" to Dearborn-Truck from web posts...
it'd make the most sense to have the F-100 & other F's built in the same plants so they can adjust model percentages without having to idle a plant
...tho I'm wondering it that will be enuf

I think the Dearborn plant will keep pumping out only F150s but what they could do is merge the Michigan truck where the Expy and Navi are build with Louisville because considering that the SUV sales are going down they could use only one factory and then take one of those factories and retooled for C1 products and that means from Volvo C30, Focus Cmax or the B3 platform used on the fiesta unless they plan on importing them from Brazil or from Mexico but I see more potential at having a plant that can produce Volvos at the same plant as Fords
