Ford to invest $773 million across southeast Michigan, with the money they have they can afford it. Good cars, Good trucks, Good sales, Good for Michigan, Good for the local workers - Invest in the US and wait for the 'returns' to roll in. Michigan is a right to work state - cheaper labor to be had.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Now all they have to do is invest in designing cars people will want to buy and will not fall apart when the warranty is up.
