Ford and Volkswagen, which for months have discussed a strategic alliance with potential global implications for the auto industry, are likely to provide an update about their joint plans Tuesday at the Detroit auto show, Automotive News has learned. Discussions are ongoing.
The crossover, the No. 2 seller in Ford's lineup behind the F series, has been redesigned for the 2020 model year with more refined styling to help set it apart from the rugged off-road Bronco and a smaller off-road crossover — dubbed the baby Bronco — due next year.
Ford will be moving to quarterly reporting of U.S. sales figures. Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president for U.S. marketing, sales and service, said reporting potentially volatile monthly numbers is "just not how we want to run the business."
