re: Lincoln MKZ Gets the Axe ...or a cD6-scalpel + name change?
Fomoco has said they're getting away from the use of rigidly-defined 'platforms'.
Is this just rhetoric&spin or meaningful?
If there's a significant mechanical difference with a vehicle's new "structure" (cop-out term), I expect some changes in the factory - - like for the Focus - - tho not heard about for the Cuvlets, yet
like I've been beaten-up-repeatedly, for my T7-Ranger-etc idea of: "not all factories switching around the world simultaneously";
I see No reason that an existing vehicle & its supplychain cannot continue while a related vehicle, BUILT ELSEWHERE, switches to new "structure" (or other changes)
not bothering to post in the Explorer thread:
if the Explorer and Aviator get built (for a while?) in different factories, there's no reason they can't be (for a while?) of different generations: ie Explorer still D3/4, Aviator on cD6
if they're built in the SAME factory, then I expect the same generation-structure
