...If things at Ford and GM back then were different, Lexus probably would be in the same shape as Acura and Infiniti are today...
I hafta just SAVOUR that for a moment
...The luxury field is just so saturated right now. It's hard to justify such a gigantic investment when the demand is little. The world does not really need another luxury car brand. I suppose Lincoln will always be on standby just in case something happens to the established marques.
borrowing from the MercuryFan(atic)s'Creed
Never forget, Never forgive, and
Never EVER Give UP!
...You passionately want Ford to elevate Lincoln to the level of a real luxury brand...
like the Over $200k crowd??
- I've ranted a number times about keeping Lincoln LESS than 6-digits
- really just want Lincoln to get the ****-outta Mercury's way
I doubt Lincoln will have its own platform...
...Maybe the smaller cars (Fiesta, B-Max, Ka-Figo) will keep its own platform for a while... but not much. Ford is going to the "one-flexible-platform-for all" VW model.
just-imhO, D6/CD6 will replace larger & lux-er vehicles: Z-Conti(/"T" if it survives)-Explorer/Aviator
and A.M.P will go down from SOME midsizers to U.S B-class
& A-class(?) on whatever's cheapest)
D6/CD6 and A.M.P might end up as close 'cousins'

Variants of D6/CD6
D6rwd ...could there also be
& if there's any relation between D6 and T6 trucks?
