Re: Changan Ford Opens Fifth Factory in China
sounds like my favorite reason for RotW Rangers NOT going to the new T7 architecture Simultaneously with MAP = separate supply chains!
in addition to separate factories (4 per BON) that need to spread their upgrade costs over fiscal years
Don't you think delaying the launch of the Ranger for the rest of the world (its most important markets which includes Asia-Pacific), is like saying Ford will delay the new Fiesta's launch in Europe?
Things to remember, the Ranger is one of the models responsible for Ford's growth in Asia-Pacific and I believe several other markets. In these markets the Ranger is Ford's only pickup, it's basically what the F150 is to the US market (where mid-size pickups have a much smaller market share). Ford Australia is the one developing the US-spec Ranger.
