It was part of the a petrol scam, where in addition to massive subsidies and regular petrol bailouts (unnecessary preemptive wars) that the so called big 3 especially Ford tried to move people to pick up which are less aerodynamic and heavier to help evade fuel economy standards by forcing people (coercive focus of value and marketing- other products and revenue internally subsidizing trucks) to buy more pick ups to move the fuel consumption curve back toward inefficiency to protect useless petrol fuel energy. Ford was all about this more than other members of the Big 3 and curiously while always "structurally bankrupt" it was on the only former Big 3 member not to have gone bankrupt although its stock price currently reflects failure and defacto bankruptcy. Remember GM got bailed out, and Chrysler got bailout out again (it was bailed out under Iacocca) even though it had become a foreign firm (for a moment prior) and now it looks like as a member of FCA its about to become part of Hyundai. But lets put this in context now when Ford which is about the biggest electric vehicle laggard on the planet tries to troll Tesla for moving forward on electric production. There sure as heck should be no 25% tariff protecting these petrol hog trucks in the US, quite the opposite and I hope other countries introduce a huge tariff on any petrol vehicle especially trucks. The total ignorance and stupidity of Ford execs who don't see what time it is or the real position they are in is astounding. Their future includes bankruptcy/liquidation or acquisition for pennies on the dollar which will still include a lot of liquidation. They can all go home to their blue blooded families with that legacy to follow them around for the rest their lives. And lets also remember that in the entire history of Ford, which quite apparently is about to come to an end, no generation ever put the number of reservations down- nothing even close that the current generation has for the Tesla Model 3. This is what happens when a population evicts a rent seeker- Ford consider yourself FIRED!
