2018 Genčve International Motor Show

Focus confirmed for Geneva.

http://www.carscoops.com/2017/12/fir...-new-ford.html

Though they may show it to us? If not now, then in New York.

So what will they show here? Edge, Explorer? Will they surprise us with a large sedan? (Maybe the Taurus will become fully autonomous or an EV?)

Re: 2018 Genčve International Motor Show

Did you read the report carefully?

Ford is still deciding launch details for its fourth-generation Focus.
it's not mean CONFIRM.

Focus is not important for Hackett’s Ford. Not for USA... maybe the Focus will not debut there

Hackett’s Ford count on the SUVs and Crossovers when the sedans will be killed. But the growth of Ford crossovers and SUVs are not as higher as the other automakers line of SUVs and Crossovers. The future of Ford looks bad

Re: 2018 Genčve International Motor Show

We're getting the Focus, but from China. When the US Spec model will debut is unknown. I think this will be the last sedan we get. Making too drastic of a shift to SUVs will only hurt them.

I hope they understand it's a shift to SUVs. Jumping will make you fall.

Re: 2018 Genčve International Motor Show

If I wanted to take people off of sedans, here is how I would do it.:

On the dealer's side:

! Important !
Never force people to buy anything. Don't force buyers to get an SUV, but warn them regular cars are declining.


Ex:
"More people these days are buying crossovers and SUVs. Do you still want a regular car?"

(Yes or No Response)

"Okay."

On Ford Motor Company's end:

Start off by reducing options. Not key safety features or necessities. Lavish items many could do without.

Then reduce trims. Take away the least selling or unpopular variants.

NOW (for Christ's sake, Ford!) is where you can discontinue full models.

I didn’t like the concept but hopefully cars like it allow cars like the F-Type to survive.

All-New Peugeot 508 Coming To Geneva Motor Show Next Month
New platform, interior and engines are hiding under a fresh new design
Motor 1 . com
- Anthony Karr, Editor - FEB 10, 2018
just a rendering
Peugeot is almost entirely focused on its SUV lineup, which currently consists of the 2008, 3008, and 5008, but might be soon joined by another derivative, the 4008 coupe-SUV. However, the French company is not neglecting its 508 sedan, which will receive a brand new generation during the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in early March.

While the information is not officially confirmed at the moment, Automotive News quotes “source close to the automaker,” who claims the revamped vehicle will land in Geneva. Based on the new EMP2 platform, which also underpins the brand’s SUV range, the new 508 will gain a drastically new design, inspired by the Instinct and Exalt concepts. By giving the sedan a more attractive design, Peugeot hopes, the 508 should be able to better compete against its rivals in the European D-segment.

Designed from the ground up, the midsize vehicle will also gain an all-new interior, which will be dominated by the company’s i-Cockpit digital dashboard, already available for the 3008 and 5008 duo. Higher quality materials and better build quality are also planned.

As far as the engines are concerned, given the shared underpinnings with the 3008 and 5008, expect to see a lineup of familiar gasoline and diesel turbo motors. These include the 1.2 turbo gas, as well as the 1.6 and 2.0 turbodiesels. Eventually, a plug-in hybrid version will also join the range, but the once revolutionary diesel-electric hybrid will stay in the past.

Compared to the model that's still on sale today, Peugeot hopes the redesigned 508 will be a much stronger alternative to the Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo, and Skoda Super trio in the midsize segment on the Old continent. Last year, the French company delivered 22,724 examples of the model, 39 percent down compared to the previous year.

PSA will likely continue to assemble the 508 in Rennes, France, and in Wuhan, China.
