Kudos To FoMoCo
That's right, it's not a typo. I am giving kudos to FoMoCo. ME. DCS. No, you are not hallucinating. But why??
Well, according to the Sept. 19th edition of Automotive News, Ford, NOT GM, is adhering to value pricing, another idea cooked up by GM. Value pricing, blogged about here by yours truly, will eliminate big rebates and price the MSRP closer to transaction prices of 2005 model year cars. The average price decrease for Ford per vehicle was $506 compared to GM at $300. Although not much, Ford is making progress in this department to stabilize a volatile market.
It will be a long road to recovery, but at least we are seeing some progress now.
