I didn't say it has something to do (the auto show) as you have said, they have been doing that for years (NAIAs for Ford and NYIAS for Lincoln). I was referring to other stuff but nevermind

Yeah, that would make sense....but it is Ford we are talking about, they don't allow Lincoln to steal the show (that much)

I am going to take your word, I will be waiting for you to join the "dark side"


Yeah, I remember that! that was pathetic.

yeah, kinda....but the problem is that the clients that Lincoln is after seem to be more difficult to please than I am.

yes, it is good.....good for Lincoln.....but I don't know if it is enough for today's "luxury" market.

yes, if Mercedes show 4 new vehicles in a month, shouldn't Lincoln be faster? Yes I know they have fewer models, but maybe that is a problem too, only 2 cars and 4 SUV/CUVs is not helping them in terms of sales.
I tell you this because I studied business management (focused on product development and innovation).....nowadays is very important to be fast (aside from other things)

Jose,
you must know you are difficult to please. I mean, two new potentially high volume Lincoln's in 2019 is pretty good, and yet you want more and faster. Did you forget their 10 year rebuild plan? Granted, it may have changed under new leadership, but time is still needed.
