Yikes! And they are talking about building pickup trucks? I know when I think "truck" I think "Volkswagen"! NOT
VW would likely benefit huge from this, Im not sure what Ford gets out of the deal? Some audi tech?

I would rather see them collaborate with Toyota
But then Toyota released a new Supra yesterday and its a BMW Z4? Toyota fans are not happy.
Its a big global melting pot of auto makers these days it seems

Small commercial trucks. They are probably looking for a better competition to the Sprinter. A small turbo diesel is the ticket here, and Ford doesn’t really have much experience here.

The Ford Trucks will undoubtedly achieve greater fuel economy ratings with VW software, no?
