While GM may have a future as a standalone car company over the next decade, Ford does not. Its market cap is down 42% over the past five years, while GM's is close to flat. The savings in a combination would be well into the billions of dollars. A marriage of the two also could compete effectively with Toyota, VW and perhaps the new Fiat Chrysler and Renault combo. GM also has the advantage that it is considered to make among the most dependable American cars.

LS swaps are played out but they fucking work. Elon could save billions and stop the losses.

GM and Ford are going to combine, in an effort to provide the worst dealership experience on the planet. Service costs will increase 30%, fat baby boomer salespeople from separate predecessor companies will fistfight on the daily, Sierra vs F150 arguments will turn bloody.

Half the reason my last two vehicles were fords is because I could buy them from Gomez in like 5 minutes..will not set foot in a ford or GM dealer as a regular dude off the street. Lol

For real though, I'd honestly never considered this. I guess it does make sense. There'd be a huge savings in administrative costs i'm sure.

That was a dumb move. A car manufacturer that doesn't make cars.
Yep, a winning strategy for sure.

Dodge owns their asses with their Scat Pack Charger and Challengers. For the price. Ford and Chevy can’t compete with the 392 Hemi.

But that is only a small, niche part of the market. Not everyone buying vehicles is looking for Scat Packs and other 392 equipped performance vehicles.

Most are just looking for a mobile appliance to get them from point A to point B.

New Mustang is faster in basically every measurable category than a scat pak, no?

So is the camaro. I think they're all basically a driver's race in a straight line, anything else the challenger scat loses.
