2. Ford Is Exploiting a Cafe Loophole
The EPA (CAFE) standards have made it so automakers can actually make bigger cars more efficient, or so they say. This is the real reason that vehicles are getting bigger, and sedans are being phased out. In reality, Ford found this same loophole during the 90s when it marketed the original Ford Explorer. It would appear that the domestic automakers didn’t learn anything from the economic collapse of 2008. This was during a time when the SUV boom was happening the first time, and as soon as gas prices shot up, no one could afford them.
Ford is making a mistake by exploiting this loophole just to sell vehicles that have a bigger profit margin. Ford needs to work on building unique cars and trucks that people want.
