Ford's Cash Cow

Ford Motor Co. (F)s F-Series pickup accounts for 90 percent of its global auto profits, while GMs pickups and sport-utility vehicle derivatives generate two-thirds of worldwide earnings, Jonas said. The Detroit automakers control 93 percent of the U.S. pickup market, their last bastion of dominance.

Only because GMC and Chevy are not combined under GM. Combined they kill the F-series.

Maybe do but ford is by far a superior truck.

I have had 4 Chevys 1/2 tons and 1 f150. I absolutely love my f150 KR. Pulls better and rides nicer.


Ford also didn't have the bail out. If I went out of business Obama wouldn't help me and I understand it keeps people at work but it really burns me up that someone got a second chance to mess up their finances again. I have a hard time with that. But ford flat out hauls better.

You're right....they didn't officially get any "bail out" money, but they sure did take out a whole bunch of low interest Government loans at a very opportunistic time. They also received some timely Government help in the 80's with the transmission "recall" that didn't end up being a recall. The Big 3 have all gotten plenty of Government "bail outs" over the years.

I should have been more specific I guess. I have a dog on both sides of the fight as a VP under a dealership group that includes both Chevy and Ford. I was referring to the statement of 37 years not last year. I took a risk jumping into the most heated argument of all time. I should have kept my fingers in my pockets.

My 01 Expedition keeps on plugging away with no signs of trouble (knock wood). My 89 Mustang was a POS, but Ford does well with trucks. Frankly, I wish we could get the Focus RS over here. Supposedly it goes pretty well, although, frankly, the MkVII GTI looks phenomenal.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

The government will bail out any large group when it comes to an election......
And after owning Chevy, Ford, and Dodge, in a family construction business and actually working the trucks, the ford has been the most dependable pickup we have had. Period.
