Re: BRONCO ...thread continued
If I am trolling then answer me this:
I walked a few months ago into a Ford dealer with the intent to replace my leased 17 Escape...I wanted a PHEV with AWD but was open to a well priced gas or hybrid as well.
Did Ford have something to sell me?! Nope they only had the same Escape....no changes....same Explorer (which Iíve had 2)...a Edge that looked slightly different but had the same interior I had in my 2011 Ford Taurus!!!
So yeah...your fresher product isnít here right now, itís still coming....
So hereís the question...if I went to the dealer today to buy a PHEV Escape, could I? Or even a hybrid Escape or Explorer? Or EVEN a gas one?
The only competition that is going down the same hole as Ford is Nissan....
So your complaint is Ford doesn't have what you want at that time - which you know/knew the products weren't out yet - when the new products you do want are to arrive within a month or two of your visit?
So wait...then I CANT!!! And will still have to wait 2 months?!
See BOOM! Ford sales is down because of people like me, we shopped Ford, we wanted to stay but there was nothing to see beyond the F150 (which I bought one) and went right into the competition to find a replacement.
I am not trashing Ford...where did you read that? In fact I still have 2 in my garage, so I am helping pay for you salary.
I am stating facts and looking at whatís happening....sales are significantly down, I donít see enough movement to help save any of that....all I hear is vapourware...I suspect my C-Max will get replaced with a Prius Prime or RAV4 hybrid because the Escape PHEV is AGAIN not here soon enough.
I'm just not understanding. The product you want is coming soon - and you know it's coming soon - yet you absolutely cannot wait a few months?
I understand the "regular" consumer having no idea and walking into a dealer and it being the same models (upon which, dealership personnel could inform them a new model will be there in a few weeks).
But you follow things on the forums here, and know when the new vehicles are arriving (Ford itself said some new Explorers were sold in June, so it's arriving as we speak), yet are still arguing that new product is nowhere to be found and never coming?
